Basketball, baseball, football – there’s no question that enjoying your favorite game at the local sports bar is the best way to connect with other fans and have a great time. However, when it comes time to order a drink, picking your “poison” may not be as easy as it seems.
Don’t worry though. Here you can learn about some of the best drinks to order while enjoying watching your favorite team.
Yes, good ole’ H2O. While water may be a bit of a shocker on this list, the fact is, its free (at most places) and good for you – it’s a win-win scenario. Even better, you don’t have to worry about the bar running out of it halfway through your game.
Even better, you don’t have to find the right brand name. You can count on the consistent taste and refreshing benefits of water, regardless of if it is straight out of the tap or from the freshest springs.
Are you of legal age? If so, why not kick back and relax during games with a brew? Or, if you prefer to get a bit “rowdier” beer can help this along.
For males (and many females) beer is considered synonymous with football. You can also choose from an array of brands and types, ensuring you get the taste and flavor you want and enjoy.
Rum and Coke
Another option for those who are of legal drinking age is rum and Coke (or your soft drink of choice). While this may not be the traditional drink for sporting events, it can make a great combination of two fan favorites.
Soda and alcohol are as much of a part of watching sports and screaming crazily at the TV as wings and peanuts. Rum and coke are the perfect marriage for this must-have drink.
Why not play a sports-related drinking game? Each time your team scores – take a shot! You can do this with almost any type of liquor and since you are watching in a sports bar, you’ll have an array of options to choose from.
Get all your buddies in on the game for you and if your team wins, chances are you will be feeling pretty good by the end.
How Do You Enjoy the Big Game?
If you are planning to enjoy the big game from a sports bar, there’s no question that there are more than a few drinks you can enjoy. Consider some of the options here or choose your favorite. Who knows, you may even be able to convince the bartender to create a “signature drink” for your team or based on your preferences. It may even become a bar staple.
Remember, each sports bar experience is unique, so have an open mind. If someone recommends a drink you have never tried, give it a shot. Who knows, you may find a new favorite that you want to enjoy at every sporting event you watch in the future.
