Football Cocktail Recipe: The Cucumber CornerbackNow that Fall is officially here and football has started, it’s time to roll out all of those delicious football party recipes! Snacks are great, but a good football cocktail recipe can go a long way. And this one is a winner! It’s light, refreshing, and delicious! Plus, it’s the perfect crisp drink to pair with your favorite salty snacks. The flavors appeal to a crowd and they’re so fast and easy to make that you can mix up a batch in no time!

You only need 4 ingredients to make this football cocktail recipe and you can prep some of the ingredients in advance too, which I love. No one needs to be mixing up complicated cocktail recipes when the game is on!

I picked up a case of Sprite® at my local Sam’s Club store. I love that I can get enough for a party, plus get a great value on all of the Coca-Cola® beverages that I need when I’m hosting.

Tip – If you’re going to be picking up beverages for your own football party, you should see if your club has the Club Pickup option. For Clubs that offer this service, order online and they’ll have everything ready for you when you arrive, which means you don’t have to load any of those heavy cases! It’s a lifesaver!

And if you’re a frequent host or tend to gather at your place for football Sundays, I also like to grab the Members Mark 18 oz. Heavy Duty Party Cups at Sam’s Club too! (Plus, you can wash and re-use them! Bonus!)

But let’s get back to the recipe, shall we?

Football Cocktail Recipe: The Cucumber CornerbackHere’s what you’ll need to make your own:

  • 3 oz. Sprite
  • 1 1/2 oz. Cucumber Vodka
  • 2-3 Cucumber Slices
  • Sprig of Mint
  • Ice

Football Cocktail Recipe: The Cucumber CornerbackAdd ice and cucumber slices to a highball glass.

If you want more mint flavor in your football cocktail recipe, you can also muddle some mint in the bottom of your glass before adding the ice!
