With everyone chirping about the big game, we bring you a very special Super Bowl addition of our always fun Tweety Weekend Cocktail Send Off. Whether you will tune in to see the Pats pick up another win, to finally shout out some pride at home-boys The Giants, or you are the girlfriend whose just half supportive, half just in it for the cool commercials, alcohol, and snacks, we assume that like Tweety, you will be hunkered down on that comfy couch most of Sunday afternoon and evening. While beer is a traditional accompaniment for the chili, sub/hero sandwiches, and wings that we expect on your football chomping menu, we recommend kicking it up a notch, with some of these fun and tasty football cocktails. With such appropriate names like Blitz, First & Ten, and Fumble, we are sure that no matter which drink you choose, the ultimate taste will be a touch down!
Speaking of touch downs…

4 oz bourbon
8 oz Lemonade
8 oz unsweetened ice tea
Combine bourbon with iced tea in a mixing glass filled with ice. Strain equal parts into two Hurricane glasses filled with ice. Top with lemonade. (Makes two 12-ounce servings.)
P.S. Sorry about the Patriots comment. We here at Tweety HQ are basically all New Yorkers, and we seriously hope we’re wrong about our prediction.
