It’s 5 o’clock Somewhere-Superbowl Edition!

When I was younger, I didn’t care much to watch football or the Superbowl.  It was more interested in hanging out with my friends.  Or Duran Duran.  I was definitely more interested in Duran Duran than in football.  My dad, however, watched every Sunday. During the fall, as I was running in and out of the house, he was cooking and baking while watching the game.  Every. Single. Sunday. Always one of my favorite memories.

Now  we come Superbowl Sunday 1983.  I had no idea who was playing, nor did I give a shit. My brother, who is 3 years younger than I am, was {is} crazy obnoxious. (He doesn’t read my blog, I can say that). So, it’s Superbowl Sunday, I just got out of the shower. I was cleaning my ear with a Q-tip, my brother whips open the bathroom door. The door hits my elbow, the Q-tip pierces my ear. To this day, I remember the pain. Superbowl Sunday 1983…spent in the emergency room. I’m pretty sure my brother is still grounded.

I bet my dad needed one of these that night!  Cranberry Fizz Punch!! Great for Superbowl parties since when doubled, it makes a lot! And goodness knows we may need it for the half-time show. I’m kidding!!!!  This punch can be made with or without the good stuff.  Ahem..I mean vodka.  In fact, you can make it without any alcohol; and then the adults can add a splash to their glass.  Double the recipe…it’s that good.

Cranberry Fizz Punch

  • 1 qt Cranberry Juice Cocktail, chilled
  • 1 C Grapefruit juice, chilled
  • 1 C Orange juice, chilled
  • 1/2 C Sugar (start with less than 1/2 C, add slowly, taste along the way)
  • 2 C Ginger ale, chilled
  • Vodka, as you see fit, or added to individual glasses
  • Ice cubes with lemon wedges and cranberries (optional)
  1. Mix cranberry juice cocktail, grapefruit juice, orange juice, and sugar until well blended.
  2. Add ginger all just before serving.
  3. Add vodka at your discretion (a lot, a little..no judgement here, just don’t drive)
