One of the things I enjoy most about looking through my journal of recipes is determining what season I came up with a drink based on the name. Sure, seasonal ingredients are an obvious clue, but sometimes there are two or three drinks on the page that all share a common naming theme. Recently I came across three drinks that I clearly came up with a few autumns ago, because they all had football related names. Since we’re heading into Week 4 of the NFL season, I figured now is the perfect time to write about one.
