Whether or not you are a die hard football fan, the odds of you attending a Super Bowl party are pretty high. And if you’re not super into watching guys chasing a ball and tackling one another, there’s always an abundance of chips, dips, and — my favorite part — drinks. But if you're cheering for a particular southern team (and an average beer just won't do), you can always make a delicious blue drinks for Carolina Panther fan that not only taste great, but honor your favorite team.
Sure, you could go with a vodka and soda and call it a day. But you can also have fun blending southern flavors and mixing in colors to give your drink a Carolina Blue hue. Plus, who doesn’t love have a multi-hued tongue? (Just me? Oh well.) Why not get into the spirit of things and use your favorite team as inspiration when concocting some cocktails? What’s really great, is that even after the Super Bowl is over, you’ve added some new drink making skills to your mixology repertoire. So bust out the blue curacao, get your glasses frosty, and check out some of the bestCarolina Panther-inspired drinks for the team’s biggest fans.
