Celebrating The Super Bowl With Cointreau’s Refreshing ‘Game Day’ Margaritas

Today is the biggest game in football, Super Bowl LVI. For the players, it’s all about leaving everything out on the field and trying to win the NFL’s most coveted trophy.

What a year it has been and it’s time to toast to all the players for one entertaining season. Because it’s Super Bowl Sunday, we need something biggest than what comes in a can. We need a ‘Game Day’ Margarita by Cointreau.

Before we get into that. Let’s talk about who is playing.

I have been loving this year’s regular and post-season games and the two teams playing each other today are something special. The Los Angeles Rams and the Cinncinati Bengals are going head to head with two superstar, team-changing quarterbacks that have had completely different paths to get to the same big game.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford has spent many years honing his craft with the questionable Detroit Lions and switched teams and his first year with the Los Angeles Rams has brought them to the biggest stage. My first NFL game was watching the Detroit Lions and seeing Stafford in person, so he always has a special place in my heart with trying his best with that Lions team. Not to mention, a frustrated Odell Beckham Jr. who was underutilized with the Cleveland Browns changing teams midway through the season and being an absolute threat in the post-season is exciting to watch.

While Bengals Quarterback, Joe Burrow is an exciting young gun that has really edged out some of the best teams in football with his endless talent, relationships on the field with his teammates and his flawless confidence. Additionally, seeing the Bengals who is one of the youngest teams in the game coming out of the left field and surprising everyone, beating the odds on favourites to get win their division. A Cinncinati Cinderella story in many ways.

I personally couldn’t be more excited for these two unlikely teams to play in the Super Bowl.

That and with Pepsi Super Bowl Half-Time Show promising big things with Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre and Mary J. Blige, this should be a good one to watch.

Watching this incredible game needs a revised game day experience.

You can have your routine beer, chips and wings combination, but that was before, this is now. We are changing it up with some ‘Game Day’ Margaritas from Cointreau

The refreshing, Cointreau and tequila-based cocktail can be made in so many different ways. Spicy, classic, with ginger, without ginger and has lots of different personalities, but I wanted to start you off with the basic setup, so you can enjoy it through big batches through companies or just a drink or two with your couch mate.
