We’re kicking off this year’s recipes with the perfect cocktail for your Super Bowl Sunday watch party! It takes less than five minutes to make, and it’s oh-so-tasty. This Tequila Touchdown cocktail is a twist on the popular Tequila Sunrise, without as much tartness in flavor–though that ingredient is optional, if you rather the tart.
