NY Jets & Green Bay Packer Cocktails

on January 21, 2011

Yes we are NY Jets fans in this house. Doesn’t matter that we live in Florida. Once a New Yorker, always a New Yorker. It’s been very exciting for the last few weeks to say the least. I predicted weeks ago, before the Jets miraculous win over the Colts, that the Super Bowl would be the Jets vs Packers. My husband is also a Packers fan having lived in Wisconsin many years ago. But Jets come first. So when it’s down to the final game we will be cheering for the Jets.(I am very optimistic aren’t I?) So today’s post, in honor of those two teams, are two cocktails, that are green. Both teams main colors are green. No there won’t be any cheese flavored cocktails for the Packers. Ewww… They are both green and we’ll leave it at that. Try them both this weekend. One for each game!  Or make them both for both games! It’ll give everyone up north something to do in this snowy weather, yet again! The first martini is very simple. The second one isn’t really difficult but it’s got more ingredients. They both have Midori in them. Be adventurous! Take a chance!

Go Jets! Go Packers!

GREEN-TINI

INGREDIENTS:

4 ounces vodka (your choice)

3 ounces Midori melon liqueur (or any melon liqueur you wish)

Lime wedges for garnish

DIRECTIONS:

Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with limes.

Makes 2 martinis


ZEN COCKTAIL


INGREDIENTS:

2 ounces Zen Green Tea Liqueur (this is pretty readily available)

1 ounce Midori melon liqueur

6 ounces mango juice

white pepper

4 ounces cream

mint leaves for garnish

grated nutmeg for garnish

DIRECTIONS:

Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well. Strain into chilled champagne flutes or other slender class.

Garnish with mint leaves and a dash of nutmeg.

** I just tried to buy the Zen Green Tea Liqueur, it’s pricey!! $30 a bottle! Yikes. I am looking for a smaller bottle now.

    • Once a New Yorker always a New Yorker! Honestly, I’m not a big football fan either but my husband is. I like watching the Super Bowl for the commercials! But when the Jets make it this year (still optimistic!) I will try and pay attention!
