Game Day Tips:
- Freeze your glasses before your guests arrive so they are nice and cool when sitting outside in the sun.
- Set up your bar with multiple bottles, shakers, strainers, different garnishes, themed napkins and straws.
- Serve your cocktails in unexpected containers, such as mason jars or favorite teams mugs
- Most importantly, make it fun by creating signature cocktails recipes and adding menus
- Create a fun table mat that keeps with a football theme
- Serve dishes in fun football themed dishes
- Create dishes that are easily shared
