If NHL Teams Were Alcoholic Beverages

Cocktails / November 1, 2016 / No Comments.

giphyHockey is back and we couldn’t be more thankful. With the days getting shorter and the air a bit colder, it’s nice to have something to unwind with at the end of the day. As the puck drops around the league, we’re here with a few drinks that pair well with some of our favorite NHL teams.

Boston Bruins: Three Wise Men

For a squad as tough as nails, this shot won’t do you any favors.

  • 1/2 oz Jack Daniels
  • 1/2 oz Jim Beam
  • 1/2 Jose Cuervo

New York Rangers: Long Island Ice Tea

Like a Ranger’s team that hasn’t won the Stanley Cup in over 20 years, this drink won’t hesitate to knock you on your a**.

  • Equal parts vodka, tequila, rum, gin and triple sec
  • 1 1/2 part sweet and sour mix
  • 1 part cola

Chicago Blackhawks: Adios Motherf**kers

It’s amazing that this amount of alcohol won’t send you into a coma, but the Hawks might.

  • 1 1/2 oz vodka
  • 1/2 oz rum
  • 1/2 oz tequila
  • 1/2 oz gin
  • 1/2 oz Blue Curacao Liqueur
  • 2 oz Sweet and Sour mix
  • 2 oz 7-Up Soda

Tampa Bay Lightning: Miami Vice

Like Steven Stamkos, this drink is ice cold.

  • 5 oz Bacardi 151 rum
  • 1 package frozen piña colada mix
  • 1 package frozen daiquiri mix

Washington Capitals: White Russian

Aaaand you’re out like a light. A tribute to Alex Ovechkin, this Russian classic doesn’t play nice.

  • 2 oz vodka
  • 1 oz coffee liqueur
  • Light cream

5 Reasons to Drink This Weekend

5 Reasons To Drink This Weekend / October 14, 2016 / No Comments.

giphyTGIF people, TGIF! As Rihanna once said, “Cheers to the freakin’ weekend, I’ll drink to that.” Not that you need any other reason to drink besides that fact that it’s Friday and tonight is officially the start of the weekend, we thought we’d give you (especially Bostonians) a few extra reasons to throw a few back.

Big Papi is officially retired. We all knew this day was coming and with it the end of the Red Sox season, but it was still a hard goodbye. David Ortiz is a Boston legend. Not only does he hold the record for the Red Sox single-season for home runs with 54 (set during the 2006 season), but this past season he set another record for most extra-base hits in a season for players aged 40 or over. #GOAT

The NHL has kicked off and the Bruins won. The National Hockey League regular season started again two day ago and Boston won it’s first game. The Bruins played the Columbus’ Blue Jackets in Ohio and were victorious with a 6-3 win. Brad Marchand was responsible for two of the goals and three assists. Cheers to it finally being hockey season.

The Harry Potter franchise is back. It doesn’t matter how much of a fan you are because this is huge. All eight movies are available in select IMAX theaters all over the country for one week. This is happening because The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, also written by J.K. Rowling, was transformed into movie and is coming out next month. The author also announced yesterday that five films would be released as a part of this story.

Bob Dylan won the 2016 Nobel Prize for literature. The 75-year-old rock star became the first songwriter to ever win the award. He received it “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.” He is the first American to win since 1993, when the novelist Toni Morrison received the prestigious award. President Obama said it was “well-deserved” and took to Twitter to congratulate one of his “favorite poets.”

Brady is back in Foxborough. These last two weeks have been huge for Boston. Papi finished up his career and the “Deflate-gate” is finally over. Brady has already made his first appearance on the field in Cleveland against the Browns (winning by a sweeping score of 33-13) but now it’s time for him to return to home turf. The Patriots are scheduled to play the Cincinnati Bengals this Sunday in Foxborough. This is going to be a huge day in New England. Be sure to get your Bud Light Patriots-edition cans and support the team!


5 Reasons to Drink This Weekend

5 Reasons To Drink This Weekend / June 5, 2015 / No Comments.


We’re not the type of people who need a reason to drink. If we’re breathing that’s reason enough. But for those who need more, here you go:

1. The Finals: Whether you’re a hockey or a basketball guy, you’ve got plans this weekend. Say goodbye to all of your relationships except the one with the pizza guy.

2. Miss Piggy: This week, the puppet was honored with the Sackler Center First Award for feminism at the Brooklyn Museum. The jury is still out on whether or not the selection committee knows she’s a fictional talking pig.

3. Twitter Followers: After holding the title for only a month, @POTUS was dethroned by @Caitlyn_Jenner as the fastest person to hit 1 million Twitter followers. You can’t even get your bartender to listen to you.

4. Hellboy: Scientists found the fossil of a 68 million-year-old, previously undiscovered dinosaur in a Canadian river. They’re officially calling it the Regaliceratops Peterhewsi. We’re calling it a great opportunity for a Jurassic World promo.

5. Sepp Blatter: He stepped down this week from his role of FIFA President after a week of criticism and jokes about how much his name sounds like ‘step ladder’. We bid him adieu and cheers to forgetting about soccer for at least another year.

We’re not the type of people who need a reason to drink. If we’re breathing that’s reason enough. But for those who need more, here you go:

1. Playoffs: You’ve got the first rounds of NHL and NBA playoffs to look forward to this weekend. That’s a lot of sports. But hey, you aren’t playing. Relax on the couch and watch amazing happen.

2. Election Talk: Hillary, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio have already begun their 2016 presidential campaigns. Get ready for a year and a half of them cutting each other down during commercial breaks.

3. Gisele Bundchen: The world famous supermodel walked down her last runway this week after 20 years in the biz. She will now begin her reign as the hottest retired person in the history of the world.

4. The Force: The new Star Wars trailer was released this week sending nerds into hyperdrive. Here’s hoping for way less incest in the plot this time around.

5. WikiLeaks: They posted a searchable database of all of that controversial Sony stuff that leaked a few months ago. Search a curse word and take a drink for every email that pops up.

We’re not the type of people who need a reason to drink. If we’re breathing, that’s reason enough. But for those who need more, here you go:

1. NHLFinally. After months of lockout depression, the NHL returns this weekend. Drinks are on Bettman.

2. Inauguration – Obama officially begins his second term this weekend. Democrat, Republican, who cares? Drink to America.

3. Fight the Flu – It’s almost impossible to avoid these days, so Qui is giving us an alternate to the flu shot—drink tequila. Doctor’s orders.

4. Sports Failures – After being lied to by Lance and Manti, we don’t know who to believe in anymore. We’ll need a few beers to cope.

5. Sundance – The annual movie festival kicked off this week. Grab a bottle of champagne and pretend you’re partying with the celebs all weekend.
