10 SEC College Cocktails

Tailgate Thursday

Tailgate Thursday – Week 9

Heading into the fourth quarter of play, with just a few weeks remaining in regular scheduled games, many teams going into this period of late have faced unnerving, nail biting and disappointing endings. Many games end when either team could have won. Last Saturday was no exception and after watching, with stomach in a pandemonium state, I needed a drink. Actually, I already had consumed a few, but I needed another one. And that folks, brings us to today’s agenda. Looking at the results in SEC play, I thought it would be fun to post drink recipes for many of the league’s teams – in no particular order.

    Amazing! At Temple University, our "specialty drink" was called Bum Juice (and, oddly enough, I will admit to have consumed this many times). It consists of a very cheap malt beverage that comes in a 40 oz bottle, mixed with orange juice. It's terrible! But, a great Temple University drink is called a "Molesterfield" (don't ask me why!). We mixed Yuengling Porter with Lord Chesterfield Ale (both amazing local brews). This is fantastic!But these pale in comparison to the wonderful drinks you have listed!

    oh I am going to have to try some of these at our annual FL/FSU Golf Tourney/Party. Should be interesting as this is the first year I don't have a child at UF and now my baby is at FSU Law. Still no doubt who I am rooting for, bring on the "Florida Gatorade"
