From “Sportsmageddon,” to “Sportstacular Saturday,” the upcoming weekend is being touted as one of the best lineups in the history of sports.
From the Mayweather-Pacquiao “Fight of the Century,” to the Derby’s “Greatest 2 Minutes in Sports,” to NHL & NBA playoff action, there’s no lack of on-court and in-arena excitement.
But wait – there’s more. Chelsea is set to square off against Manchester City or Tottenham for their fourth straight title, the Yankees and the Bo Sox will do battle and the NFL draft will turn college stars into guaranteed millionaires.
With that much action on the tube, the only thing sports fans will need more than an extra set of eyeballs is a wide arrange of cocktails to keep them cheering all weekend along. Whether you’re taking a shot to celebrate a boxing TKO, sipping on a rum cocktail to relax after a stressful finish, or enjoying a little whisky as the ponies cross the line, drinks will definitely be in order.
Well, worry not – We’ve got you covered!
Here are some great new recipes from Peligroso Tequila, Captain Morgan, and Crown Royal to keep the party going through all this weekend’s epic events!
Are you up for taking the fourth quarter shot?
With your focus glued on the action, let’s keep your drink options simple yet delicious. Peligroso Silver Tequila is made from 100% Blue Weber Agave and not only a full body tequila, but full of adventure. With Cinco de Mayo around the corner, you can try this is the no-hassle celebration method: The Peli Rita Back Shot.
The Peli Rita Back Shot
-1oz. chilled Peligroso Silver tequila in a shot glass
-1oz. chilled margarita mix in a shot glass (mix = .5 oz orange liqueur, .5 oz fresh lime juice).
Directions: Take the shot of Peligroso Silver Tequila. Follow with the shot of fresh margarita mix.
Need a little post game relaxation?
Sports are full of crazy finishes – that’s what makes them great. But after a buzzer beater, back stretch takeover, or penalty shootout, a cold rum drink is perfect for a little post game R&R.
-1.5 oz. Captain Morgan Coconut Rum
-Pineapple juice to top
Directions: Build in a tall glass combining all ingredients over ice. Top with a grapefruit slice for an extra tropical feel!
Celebrating a hard fought victory?
While our favorite athletes may be popping locker room champagne or sipping juleps this weekend, there’s no better way to celebrate a victory from the comfort of our own homes than with a whisky fit for a king. So check out this Regal rift for an easy-to-mix Saturday sip.
-1.5oz. Crown Royal Regal Apple

And of course, enjoy Sportsmageddon responsibly!
