NFL “Big Game” Inspired Cocktails

To be honest, I could care less about the “big game” this year — my team didn’t even make it to the playoffs.  The only reason I’m watching is for the commercials, which I’m guessing is true for most people tuning. Even though I’m not rooting for any particular team, I can still get behind a good cocktail!

Carnival Cruise Lines came up with two custom libations, inspired by the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, that will be served this Sunday aboard all of the line’s ships. Lucky for us, they’ve shared the recipes for those watching at home — though, I’d rather be cruising!
