Shandy Jello Shot

If you’re watching the big game for the halftime show and commercials—or if you’re just in it for the snacks and drinks—you might be more inclined to go for this unaffiliated shot. It melds a pale ale with lemonade for a wonderfully jiggly take on the classic Shandy. The resulting shot is a hoppy, citrusy amalgam that will pair nicely with everything from guacamole to a loaded baked potato. Cut these shots into football shapes for a presentation worthy of excessive celebration.
