Super Bowl cocktails to host the ultimate Game Day party

When planning a Super Bowl party, Candra has you covered with a selection of Super Bowl cocktails so you can keep everyone happily refreshed! 

We’ve put together a curated selection of simple serves, batched cocktails, low-abv, and non-alcoholic crowd pleasers that are easy to make, yet will make your guests feel like you went the extra mile for them. These drinks will also allow you to enjoy the game rather than having to run around producing refills.

The Simple Serves – No Fuss Entertaining

The perfect recipes for when the game gets going. All the ease and practicality of a bottle of beer, but a lighter, citrusy alternative that will keep you refreshed all through the game. These simple three ingredient recipes combine spirit with fresh citrus and soda. Although originally the recipes call for particular base spirits, they can be customized and made with any spirit, so it’s easy to please all your guests.

Low-Abv – The Session Drinks

It’s a long day of fun, so it’s good to keep an eye on how much alcohol you are consuming. That’s why these delicious lower strength cocktails are perfect for enjoying a day of sports watching. Just as full of flavour, but lighter in strength, make sure you have some of these recipes in your entertaining repertoire.

Hermosa Mimosa


Aperol Spritz

Large Format Batching – Prepare In Advance

These are the selection of drinks that allow you to put the effort in early, and then be able to enjoy the game and your guests company. Who says you can’t have amazing Super Bowl cocktails and make it look effortless?!

In this section of batched game day cocktails you have the choice of three game day drinks. A delicious self serve Punch. A Skinny Margarita that you’ll want not because it’s ‘skinny’ but because it tastes amazing! And a spirit forward Bottled Old Fashioned, of which you’ll be hoping there is some left over.

Non – Alcoholic

When you’re gathered to watch sports, you want everyone to feel part of the celebration. So whether you’re drinking alcohol or not, these drinks feel like a treat.

PBJ is as American as the Super bowl, and has become an internationally beloved flavour combination. You can’t go wrong with a Fresh Lemonade, and the Smashapple is a deliciously bright and fresh creation of ours. Both the Lemonade and Smashapple are actually great options for those who want something they can add a splash of their favourite spirit to!
