For football season, we had a bartender from each NFL team's hometown provide the perfect cocktail to represent their team.
“With 2.5 ounces of liquor, this is the perfect cocktail for an Oakland Raiders fan,” says bartender Martin Delgado of Prizefighter in Emeryville, Calif. “Bold and strong while pleasantly refreshing, that is always my take away from a Raiders tailgate and a Raiders win. And as we are the Raiders, rum was without question the base spirit! Go, Raiders!”
- 1 1/2 oz Cruzan black strap rum
- 1/2 oz Silver tequila
- 1/2 oz Velvet falernum

Add the tequila, falernum and lime juice to a double rocks glass with crushed ice and stir.
