You know that Monday night ritual. You know that long-running, high-rated, occasionally nail-biting thing you watch on TV. Well, now that your favorite team is out of playoff contention and you’re feeling ever so slightly disinterested, it’s game time all over again. Time to stir and shake up the routine by adding some gin for the win. Brockmans Gin comes to Monday Night Football (there are only six games left) with a cocktail to suit the only three predictions at every opening kickoff: Favorite, Underdog, and Toss-up.
Our favorite is a Brockmans Bold Fashioned, a spiced-up twist combining citrus notes with rhubarb and bitters. The underdog (for not all games are played in cold weather) is a Brockmans Hot Ginger Toddy, a smooth, slightly sweet warmer perfect for the chill that comes from too many ads. And the toss-up? Brockmans Blackberry Sling that makes the most of the autumnal abundance of blackberries. You decide.
With Brockmans at the game it will always go into overtime. Brockmans, a gin like no other for a game like no other.
