For football season, we had a bartender from each NFL team’s hometown provide the perfect cocktail to represent their team.
“Denver is known for these amazing orange-hued sunsets, so I wanted to incorporate that into this cocktail, says Bryan Dayton, the beverage director and co-owner of Denver’s Acorn and Brider and Boulder’s Oak at Fourteenth. “Obviously, the orange and blue is also a nod to the Broncos jersey. In terms of the ingredients, I wanted to stick to local Colorado, so I used Suerte tequila, which is based here in Boulder. We also love spicy food here, so I added the Ancho Reyes for some heat.”
