It’s that time of year again, when two American football teams, clad in spandex, run around in circles throwing an ovoid ball back and forth, battling for the championship title and a fat golden ring. It is a time for celebration. A time for screaming at the TV. And a time for eating and drinking until you are on the verge of bursting.
With every great game day party comes great responsibility. The woes of hosting are no joke: Are my couch cushions comfortable enough? How many people can sit at once in my living room? How do you make 300 deep-fried hot wings in a tiny kitchen without lighting something on fire? How do I muddle 50 Mojitos while the game is on? (You don’t.) While we can’t help you buy a new couch or start a mini wing empire, we can make the drink-making part of your day a lot easier.
The secret to an easy, stress-free game day party is making as much ahead of time as you can—and that includes drinks. Like seven-layer dips and chili, punches are a godsend for stressed out hosts. Easy to pre-batch in large quantities, these three game day punches will insure you’ll be the real winner this Sunday.
