White, Blue and Red Flaming Shooter
The coach won't be the only one calling shots on game day.

You'll need:
Shot Glasses
Lighter or matches
Half and half
Blue Curacao

Pour grenadine into the bottom third of shot glass. Layer another third of the glass with Half and Half over the red layer. Fill the rest of the glass with Blue Curacao. To get perfect layers, use a spoon, back side up, and pour the liquid over the top of the spoon and into the glass. Repeat the process with a clean spoon for the Blue Curacao. Put the finishing touch on the drink by setting the top layer on fire.

Raspberry Daiquiri with Blueberry Garnish
When berries join your lineup, guests will come back for more.

You'll need:
3 cups crushed ice
6 oz. raspberries
3/4 Cups Simple Syrup*
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 cup of rum

Combine raspberries, simple syrup and lemon juice in blender. Strain the mixture into a bowl (no need for the solids), and pour the liquid mixture back into the blender. Mix with crushed ice, rum and lime juice until smooth. Garnish your red drink with blueberries.

*To make simple syrup, combine 1 1/4 cups of sugar with 1 cup of water in a saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves. Refrigerate.
