Snack Recipes, Ready-to-Crack Cans… Here’s How to Suit Up For Super Bowl LVI

The Super Bowl LVI is just a few “yards” away.

 

It is the one and only sporting event of the year that pulls in sports, music, entertainment… foodies and boozers of all levels and interests. Whether you are rooting on your favorite team, awaiting the halftime performance, or just there to eat and drink, this day (of acceptable overconsumption) is a highly anticipated American tradition.

 

While we do not yet know which teams will be facing off yet – perhaps Brady and the Bucs back at it again, or maybe a rookie QB attempts the win – we are going to assist with game day details, snack recipes, and tipples below. Start suiting up!

 

What day is the Super Bowl LVI?

As we all know, the Super Bowl happens on a Sunday every February (despite the unavoidable Monday morning hangover). This year, it will take place on Sunday, February 13th, 2022.

 

Where is the game this year?

Last year, Tampa hosted the Kansas City Chiefs and very-own Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This 2022, the game moves to sunny California. Set in L.A., the SoFi Stadium, home of the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers, will play “host” for the national event. The multi-purpose stadium debuted in September 2020 and welcomes up to 100,000 attendees. The venue will also host the opening and closing ceremonies for the 2028 Olympic Games – #FunFact

 

Looking to attend the game IRL? Tickets start at $6,000 via the NFL’s official partner, On Location Experiences. Yeah… we will stick to watching it in HD, from the couch, with a can in hand.

 

Which channel is the game broadcasted on?

NBC will air the game this year and it will stream live on Peacock. The game kicks off at 6:30 p.m. EST.

 

Who is performing at the halftime show?

The NFL, Pepsi, and Roc Nation announced on September 30th that Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar will take over the stage for this year’s halftime show – Jaws dropped on all Millennials.

 

How should I prepare for Super Bowl LVI?

It is never too early to start planning game day snackables, hanging football decorations, and organizing party games (if one real-time game isn’t enough for you), even if you are just watching with family or friends and waiting for the commercials. Score big with the recipes below, courtesy of Country Living.

 

  • Classic Buffalo Chicken Dip: Consider it a must-have. Fortunately, this delicious dip takes just minutes to make.
  • Sunday Night Loaded Nachos: A fan favorite, takes a traditional Super Bowl snack to the next level.
  • Cajun Sausage Puffs with Bourbon Mustard: These delectable bites are super easy to make thanks to packaged puff pastry.

 

What about drinks?

Easy. We suggest a variety pack of ready-to-drink canned cocktails to pair with the game day spread. Consider ‘Merican Mule at your makeshift “concession” bar at home. The impressive range stretches from original Moscow Mule with four-times distilled, corn-based vodka to “beach-bound” Tropical Mule with premium rum and freshly squeezed pineapple – all standing at 7% ABV. That’s more than beer. The Southern Mule combines bourbon, orange and cherry juices, and natural ginger for a bright refresher (also great partner to soft, salty pretzels). Crack one during a commercial and remember #CopperMugOptional.
