On the Sauce: Your Football Drinking Got Game

On the Sauce

If you had to pick a drink that wasn’t beer to do anything with, but maybe especially to watch football with, what drink would that be?

Okay if you had two picks. Two picks for top dog boozes. Booze. Boozes. Whatever.

We say rye + bourbon.

There’s always an occasion for rye and/or their good friend bourbon in our books. Here are a few good things about the liquors:

  • They’re both great words, they sound old-timey and they don’t lose their ring when they’re slurred
  • Not only do they both taste fantastic, but they also pack a powerful punch
  • Straight or mixed company, they’re always a-ok

See what we mean?

Here are a few mixed drinks recipes from our friends over at Knob Creek.
