Super Sunday means stepping up your party game. So we met with mixologist Matt Doer at the Scottsdale Princess who showed us a few ways to add teams to the themes of your cocktail menu.


1. Beast of the East


Let’s start out with the New England Patriots. Try this Beast of the East Shandy—a beer-based cocktail.




  • .75 oz blanco tequila
  • .5 oz peach liqueur
  • .5 oz grapefruit juice
  • IPA



  • Combine all ingredients and shake lightly 6 times
  • Strain into a beer glass over fresh ice
  • Top with IPA of choice
  • Garnish with a grapefruit peel


2. Ram Rod

Our second play of the party is an ode to the Los Angeles Rams — and the healthy L.A. lifestyle.




  • 1.5 oz Gin
  • .75 oz fresh lemon juice
  • .75 oz simple syrup




  • Combine all ingredients and shake well
  • Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice
  • Top with pomegranate kombucha
  • Garnish with a lemon wheel


3. Appetizers

We’ll end our big party play by huddling up two simple but crowd-pleasing apps to pair with our drinks. For the Beast of the East, we recommend some simple, spicy chicken wings. And for the Rams drink, go healthy with garlic humus and fresh vegetables.


And that’s how you can whip up some cocktails and apps for the win!
