Ready or not, the big game is right around the corner. As we prepare for the NFL playoffs, somewhere in our mind, we are already preparing for Super Bowl. The good folks over at SVEDKA are back, and they are here to help us all get in the spirit. Known for their incredible vodka, SVEDKA is back with not one but two cocktail recipes that are sure to pair well with the Super Bowl.
First up is the You “Can” Go Big, a brilliant blend of flavor and punch. The recipe calls for a can of SVEDKA RTD Strawberry Lemonade, Grapefruit Juice, Honey, Hot Sauce, Cinnamon Salt, while garnished with a strawberry, grapefruit, and a Cinnamon Salted Rim. Next up is a concoction dubbed A Martini That Really Brines. This recipe is something special, blending SVEDKA Vodka, Pineapple Juice, Pickle Juice, and Simple Syrup.
Both recipes are easy to make and even easier to drink. You can find the full recipes below. Be sure to drink legally and responsibly. And, while you’re at it, check back with The Culture Curators for more outstanding drink recipes coming very soon.
