I am so pumped about this football inspired sip, y’all! It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a football party spread, so until my next big game inspired celebration I have a must try sip. This drink is for football fans and for those who just prefer the snacks over the game too. I’m on both sides of the game and cheer for our favorite teams and for the food and drink display too. We got a brutal cold front here in Florida making sure we get the full football season experience.
My inspiration came from wanting to create a drink the girls and guys will both enjoy with a sweet yet slight bite. Our family cheers for a handful of southern teams and most of the excited fans in our family are men, so I kept them in mind for this fun sip. I love this drink and will be sipping on it all month and it impressed the men too, total win!
Now let’s talk about this simple recipe and get ready to see how 7UP® can kick up the party a notch with ingredients from Walmart!
I’m keeping it simple with just a few ingredients, so you can recreate this anytime of the year after your next football party. 7UP is a great way to add pizzaz to punch, mixed drinks, cake, cookies and more. You can use it in many ways during your football game day celebrating and that’s what we like most about it! A drink that offers tons of versatility. When heading to your local Walmart be sure to pick up the ingredients below. This recipe will only take about 5 minutes to prep for and serves 12.
- 7UP® (12 pack can)
- Sugar (1 cup)
- Water (1 cup)
- Vanilla bean (1 bean sliced vanilla bean with all the goodness stripped out)
- Ginger root (1 entire root sliced in 1in slices)
Bring sugar and water to a boil. Add in ginger and vanilla bean. Remove from heat and allow mixture to steep for 20-30 minutes. Strain the mixture and pour into a container that doubles as storage; a mason jar works great.
Add 3 tbsp per 7UP glass. Embellish with football game day flags. Serve and enjoy! Click here for more inspiration.
*mixture can be stored in the fridge for 2-3 weeks
