Thirsty Thursday

Every Thursday is Thirsty Thursday!

This Thursday I'm bringing you different yummy concoctions to serve at your next tailgate or party. Training camp and team practices begin this week for both college and NFL. So cool off from the August heat (or from the heat of these hot football players) with a tasty treat!

As a prelude to the next Football 101 tutorial: Positions, each drink is entitled with an important player's position every football savy girl should know!

The Kiss Me Quick Quarterback!
The quarterback is your main man! He is the drill Sargent and play maker. He controls the tempo of the entire offense. He throws passes down the field, hands off for touchdowns and even runs the ball in for a quick score himself. Most of the time he is the cutest one on the field too! This is Tom Brady quarterback for the New England Patriots... or you may better know him as... Mr. Gisele!

The Kiss me Quick Quarterback


2 oz cranberry vodka
1 oz apple liqueur
3.5 oz tonic water
4 oz apple juice
Ice cubes

How to Prepare:

Combine ingredients in highball glass (or solo cup!) and stir.

Waborita Wide Receiva!
The Wide Receiver is the guy who catches the passes from the quarterback. Every play he tries to out-run his defender and catch the long pass. This is the guy who either gets the AHHHH!! from the crowd or the awww :( from the crowd. They keep us on the edge of our seat when time passes as the ball flies through the air. They have the best victory dances and are also known to be very cocky! This is my favorite wide receiver. T.O. (aka Terrell Owens). Now a Cincinnati Bengal, he is the cockiest of them all!
Waborita Wide Receiva!


2 oz Tequilla
2 oz Cointreau
2 oz Lime Juice

How to Prepare:

In a shaker over ice combine the ingredients then pour into a salt rimmed martini glass (again... or solo cup for the ultra classy!) and garnish with a slice of lime.

The Jello-Shot Safety
The safety is a player on the defense that is the last line of defense for the team, and ultimately this makes them the most important! Their job is to cover long passes and tackle offensive players who have managed to get past all the other defensive players. Here is my favorite safety... Troy Polamalu of the Pittsburg Steelers!

Good thing he is doing the tackling instead of being tackled because that is some hair to grab!
The Jello Shot Safety


6 ounces of Jello (large package)
16 ounces of boiling water
6 ounces of cold water
10 ounces of vodka

How To Prepare:

Mix the jello mis with the boiling water until the powder is fully dissolved. You will then add the cold water and vodka (party time!) Pour the cooling mixture into either shot glasses or paper cups. Put in fridge and serve at your next tailgate!

The Tight End Of The Road
The tight end on the field is a mix of a blocker and a pass receiver. Tight ends usually come through for their teams in short yardage situations. So if you have less than 10 yards to go for a touchdown, keep your eye on your team's tight end (hah!) My favorite tight end is Jason Witten of the Dallas Cowboys!

The Tight End of the Road


2 oz Frangelico
2 oz Banana Liqueur
2 oz Whipped Cream
3 Nuts


Put all the ingredients in a shaker (except the nuts), add ice and shake well. Pour in a glass and add the nuts on top!

Running Back Bacon Shot
And finally, do you really want to win over the men in your life? Then serve this! The running back on the field is your ball carrier. They usually gain your team the most amount of yardage and they are usually the person's name you hear most often next to the quarterback! You may know this popular running back from Keeping up With the Kardashians, Reggie Bush!)

The Running Back Bacon Shot

1 part Vodka
1 part water
Bacon Salt (any flavor) to taste

How to Prepare:
Pour vodka and water in a shot glass and top with an ample amount of bacon salt. Enjoy!

Boys will be "running back" for more!
