Beer is soooo out. We’ve been detailing wine all Football Week, and now even cocktails are encroaching! Check out this one from SKYY vodka. I don’t know what it has to do with football other than the name, but I love cocktails with herbs in them – basil, thyme, tarragon. They provide such a good balance to a usually-sweet drink.
