Super Bowl 2022 is here, giving us the perfect excuse for a party with your favourite American football-loving people.
Naturally, that means you can go big with treats, deep-fried bites and sugary snacks. But more importantly, every good host should have a selection of cocktails to match the electric atmosphere of watching the world’s best two gridiron teams battle it out.
Maybe you’re ready for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to go on a year-on-year winning streak, or you’re rooting for the underdog and want the Cincinnati Bengals to take the country by storm. Or maybe, you’re just there for the drinks, laughs and inevitable memes that accompany every Super Bowl. Whatever side you’re on this year, make sure you have the right drink in hand.
Here are some Chivas-led celebratory drinks suggestions to keep your crowd happy and spirits high during this sure-to-be legendary Super Bowl Sunday.

A punch cocktail is the perfect fit for the Super Bowl. It’s a no-fuss recipe, ideal for large get-togethers and a great example of low-effort but high-reward. Simply tweak the amount of each ingredient to suit your tastebuds, then sit back and soak up the compliments like a true MVP.
Spiced Apricot Highball Cocktail Recipe
The whisky highball first became popular in Japan in the mid-20th century, just a few years before the first-ever Super Bowl in 1967. So why not kick off your evening with an upgraded take on this classic cocktail in the form of a Spiced Apricot Highball? This refreshing drink shines brighter than a Super Bowl ring and it’ll raise the bar for game day drinks for years to come.
