This Sunday is the last week of NFL playoffs so I am sure you have plans with friends or family to watch the game. For the non-beer drinker or the host that wants an alternative, boy do I have a cocktail for you. On the other hand you may just want something a little stronger to help forget that your team didn’t even make it to the playoffs, like Buffalo. Now I get to enjoy watching our biggest rival play in the championship. Either way, here is a drink that is served in a Tom Collins glass to keep you buzzed throughout the games.

Place the following in a shaker with ice:

  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Pear Nectar
  • ½ oz St. Germain
  • ½ oz Lemon Juice
  • ½ oz Cardamom Simple Syrup (recipe)

Pour over ice in a Tom Collins glass
Add a splash of club soda and garnish with Lemon

Hope you appreciate this drink as much as I do. Even if you enjoy beer and pizza with your football, you may want to give this drink a try when it all runs out!
