Excited that regular season football is here and you have something to occupy yourself on Monday, Thursday nights and Sunday's? Do you spend as much time planning what you are going to eat and drink during the game as you do on keeping up with your team?

Here are a few cocktails to try each in honor of the two New York football teams. The recipies are from DeKuyper.com.

For the New York Jets, of course it is going to be a green in color. If you like the citrus-y taste of margaritas, try this. It is called Desert Island. Here are the ingredients:

  • 2 Parts DeKuyper® Cactus Juice
  • 2 Parts Pucker® Island Punch Schnapps
  • 1 Part Club Soda
    Build over ice in a tall glass, stir and serve.

For the New York Giants, Big Blue Marble (Yes, it is Blue).


  • 2 Parts DeKuyper® Cactus Juice
  • 1 Part Pucker® Island Punch Schnapps
  • Lemon-lime soda

Mix first 2 ingredients over ice and fill glass to top with soda.
Garnish with lime wedge (optional).
