A Few Fun Facts About Popular Drinks During Big Game Season

Beer remains the most popular drink of choice during Big Game season, with light beer being particularly favored due to its lower alcohol content

Spiked Punch Bowls with a combination of juices and spirits can be an easy way to please everyone at your party! The great thing about this option is that there are so many delicious combinations you can try out.

Tips and Tricks for Preparing Drinks in Advance and Keeping them Cold or Warm Throughout the Party

If you're hosting a Big Game party, you’ll want to make sure that your drinks are prepared in advance and kept cold or warm throughout the night. Here are some tips and tricks to help make sure your guests enjoy the perfect drink all night long!

 

Prepping Drinks Ahead of Time

One of the best ways to prep drinks ahead of time is to make large batches of cocktails or mocktails that can be stored in pitchers or containers. This will save you time as well as effort during the party, while allowing you to prepare more creative recipes than if you were making each drink individually. For example, try combining pineapple juice with orange juice for a zesty Tropical Punch, or create a classic Margarita Mocktail by blending together lime juice, agave syrup and club soda. You can also opt for less traditional combinations like cherry limeade or ginger citrus fizz for an extra special touch. Once prepped, store these beverages in the fridge until it’s time to serve them up!

 

Keeping Drinks Cold

If your beverages are meant to be served cold (like beer, sparkling beverages and other juices), chill them beforehand so they stay icy throughout the night. If possible fill metal tubs with ice and use this as an extra chillier for any bottles or cans – just remember not to put glass bottles directly into ice as this could cause them to shatter. You should also consider investing in an insulated beverage carrier which will keep drinks nice and cool no matter how long they sit outside for your guests to enjoy.

 

Warming Up Hot Drinks

When it comes to hot drinks like coffee, tea or hot chocolate, it's important that they stay warm throughout the party. To do this without having to reheat each one individually when needed, opt for a slow cooker which will allow your drinks stay hot without burning out their flavor. Alternatively you could use thermos flasks filled with hot water which can be topped off periodically as necessary throughout the evening – this is particularly useful when serving large amounts of people at once as it will save time and energy on constantly reheating drinks separately!

 

Garnishes & Decorations

Finally don’t forget about garnishes and decorations! A few slices of fruit such as lemons, limes or oranges can work wonders in adding flavor and aesthetic appeal to any beverage. For something extra special try adding edible flowers like lavender sprigs which look beautiful when floating atop glasses of bubbly champagne! Keep in mind that these should be added after any alcoholic ingredients have been added otherwise they may lose their color and flavor due to oxidation from being exposed too much alcohol.

 

Get Your Own Soda Maker and Make Sparkling Water On-Demand

 

If you’re looking for something a bit different, consider investing in a soda maker which allows you to make sparkling water on-demand. This is a great way to add some fizz and fun to any beverage, all while eliminating the need for bottled beverages!

 

Don't fret about a lack of fizzy refreshments for your Big Game Party – now, you can make as much sparkling water as you need with ease in the comfort of your own home using a soda maker!
