Sporty Game-Day Recipes to Get Your Crowd Pumped for Super Bowl LIII

Please note: This post contains corrections

Super Bowl LIII is 11 days away, and with the Rams’ unexpected win over the Saints in this past Sunday’s NFC Championship game, it’s been an interesting lead-up to the big day.

We developed some game-day recipes using sports drinks for maximum team spirit. We like making shots with Gatorade’s® Fierce® line of products because their strong flavor will stand up to the alcohol and the small amount of water that Jevo adds to shots made using Craft Shots. (Need a Craft Shots introduction? This setting lets you add mixers to your Jevo shots without sacrificing alcohol content.)

Rams shots

To make this shot, we used Gatorade® Fierce® Grape, which is blue. If you choose a purple-colored alternative, you may need to add more dye to get the color right.

What you’ll need
  • 10oz Cruzan® Vanilla Rum
  • 10oz Gatorade® Fierce® Grape
  • 1/4 tsp blue food coloring
  • Plain Jane flavor pod
How to make them

Pour the liquid ingredients into Jevo’s reservoir, insert a Plain Jane flavor pod, and use the Craft option.

Optional: Rim each cup with gold or yellow sanding sugar just before serving. We find that simple syrup works well.

Patriots shots

This is a three-step recipe that makes 60 shots. You’ll need a steady hand and a little extra work space. If you’re short on time, scroll down for a variation on this recipe that uses two colors and makes 40 shots.

Total hands-on time: 30 minutes
Total chill time: 90-120 minutes

What you’ll need
  • 30oz Pinnacle® Whipped® Vodka
  • 10oz Gatorade® Frost® Glacier Cherry®
  • 10oz Gatorade® Fierce® Blue Cherry
  • 1/4 tsp blue food coloring
  • Two Plain Jane flavor pods
  • One Wild Cherry flavor pod
  • Four Jevo prep trays
  • Five packages of Jevo shot cups
  • Three Jevo tray lids
How to make them
Part 1

Have the following items ready: a Wild Cherry flavor pod, vodka, three Jevo prep trays, three packs of Jevo shot cups, and three tray lids. Line one prep tray with shot cups, but leave the rest of the cups in their packages for now; it’ll make prep go by faster.

  1. Use Jevo’s Quick Prep mode to prepare a tray of shots with 10oz vodka and a Wild Cherry flavor pod.
  2. When Jevo finishes dispensing, move the tray of shots onto a work surface near two empty shot trays. Grab a shot from the filled tray (we’ll call this Cup A) and grab two empty cups from the pack (Cups B and C). Pour a third of Cup A into B and C, so all three are evenly filled.
    Everyone loves tips: It helps to keep the face on the Jevo shot cups toward you during this step. You’ll get faster with practice, too. If you prefer to use a measuring spoon, each layer should contain 3 tsp.
  3. Place Cups A, B and C into an empty tray. Keep going until that tray is full, then continue to the second empty tray, and finally start placing cups back into the original tray, which is now almost empty.
  4. Apply a lid to all three trays, stack them, and place them in the fridge until the shots are set.
Part 2

Have the following items ready: a Plain Jane flavor pod, vodka, Gatorade® Glacier Cherry®, one Jevo prep tray, one package of Jevo shot cups, and the three trays from part 1.

  1. Use Jevo’s Craft option to prepare a tray of shots with 10oz vodka and 10oz of sports drink.
  2. When Jevo finishes dispensing, move the tray onto your work surface near the trays you just removed from the fridge. Similarly to step 2 of part 1, pour a third of the contents of each cup into each partially filled cup, taking care to keep all three shots evenly filled.
  3. Once each cup is two-thirds full, place it back the tray it came from. (Optionally, they can be placed in an empty tray).
  4. Apply a lid to all three trays, stack them, and place them in the fridge until the shots are set.
Part 3

Have the following items ready: a Plain Jane flavor pod, vodka, Gatorade® Blue Cherry, food coloring, one Jevo prep tray, one package of Jevo shot cups, and the three trays from parts 1 and 2.

  1. Use Jevo’s Craft option to prepare a tray of shots with 10oz vodka, 10oz of sports drink, and 1/4 tsp blue food coloring.
  2. When Jevo finishes dispensing, move the tray onto your work surface near the trays you just removed from the fridge. Just like steps 1 and 2, pour a third of the contents of each cup into each partially filled cup, taking care to keep all three shots evenly filled.
  3. Once each cup is full, place it back in the tray it came from. (Again, you can put these in an empty tray if you prefer.)
  4. Apply a lid to all three trays, stack them, and place them in the fridge until the shots are set. They’ll be ready to serve.

Variation: How to make two-layer Patriots shots

Crunched on time? Use this variation on our three-layer Patriots shots. It tastes just as good and has nearly the wow factor.

Total hands-on time: 18 minutes
Total chill time: 60-80 minutes

What you’ll need
  • 20oz Pinnacle® Whipped® Vodka
  • 10oz Gatorade® Fierce® Blue Cherry
  • 1/4 tsp blue food coloring
  • One Plain Jane flavor pod

  1. Use Jevo’s Quick Prep mode to prepare a tray of shots with 10oz vodka and a Wild Cherry flavor pod.
  2. When Jevo finishes dispensing, move the tray of shots onto a work surface near an empty shot tray. Grab a shot from the filled tray (we’ll call this Cup A) and grab an empty cup from the pack (Cups B). Pour half of Cup A into B, so they’re evenly filled.Tip: It helps to keep the face on the Jevo shot cups toward you during this step.
  3. Place Cups A and B into an empty tray. Keep going until that tray is full, then start placing cups back into the original tray.
  4. Apply a lid to the two trays, stack them, and place them in the fridge until the shots are set.
Part 2

Have the following items ready: a Plain Jane flavor pod, vodka, Gatorade® Blue Cherry, food coloring, one Jevo prep tray, one package of Jevo shot cups, and the two trays from part 1.

  1. Use Jevo’s Craft option to prepare a tray of shots with 10oz vodka, 10oz of sports drink, and 1/4 tsp blue food coloring.
  2. When Jevo finishes dispensing, move the tray onto your work surface near the trays you just removed from the fridge. Just like step 1, pour half of the contents of each cup into each partially filled cup.
  3. Once a cup is full, place it back in the tray it came from. (Again, you can put these in an empty tray if you prefer.)
  4. Apply a lid to both trays, stack them, and place them in the fridge until the shots are set. They’ll be ready to serve.

A reminder about gold flake: Avoid pouring ingredients containing gold flake into Jevo’s reservoir, as the solids can create clogs. For more guidelines on what you can use to make Jevo shots, see our Help Center.
