Mix Up Some Super Bowl Fun

This Sunday is game time when the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos mix it up in the Super Bowl so the master mixologists at Carnival Cruise Lines have created two team color-themed cocktails for passengers to enjoy while checking out all the exciting gridiron action aboard Carnival's "Fun Ship" fleet.

The colorful libations, The Blue Blitz and The Green Machine, are inspired by the two teams competing for the coveted Vince Lombardi trophy this weekend and Carnival has been kind enough to share the drink recipes with those of us who are watching the game at home and want to create them to serve at our personal Super Bowl gatherings.

Blue Blitz
1.25 ounces Sauza Tequila
.75 ounces Blue Curacao
1.75 ounces lemonade
1.75 ounces simple syrup
Directions: Pour all ingredients in a blender, add one large scoop of ice and blend until smooth. Pour into daiquiri glass and garnish with a lime and a cherry.

Green Machine
1.25 ounces Skyy vodka
1 ounce Midori melon liqueur
2 ounces pineapple juice
.5 ounces pina colada mix
.25 ounces lemonade
