Like the legendary yellow "Terrible Towel," this spin on the classic Rob Roy should be in every Steelers fan's hand.
2 oz Glenfiddich Scotch
1/2 oz of Sweet White Vermouth
2 dashes of peach bitters
Green Bay Packers – The Pack
A unique spin on an Old Fashioned. What better way to embody one of the oldest and most popular teams in the NFL than his classic cocktail?
Splash of club soda
2 dashes of orange bitters
2 dashes of Angostura bitters
2 oz of Glenfiddich 12
Pour over ice, stir with bar spoon 20 seconds or so. Throw in a garnish of fresh orange peel for an extra point.
Green BayPackers – The A-Rodg
Whiskey on the rocks is always on the mark, just like Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
You may need to call a huddle for this drink because although it is simple, it's all about personal preference. Some may be opposed to adding a splash of water, while others enjoy its ability to bring out hidden notes of vanilla and oak.
