Tailgating season is officially upon us, which means it’s time to fire up the grill and mix up some drinks to keep your pre-gaming crowd pleased. While the excitement of the big game is more than enough to get fans going, nothing keeps them coming back more than a first-string food spread… and a well-made cocktail, of course!
