The Kansas City Chiefs will face off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in today’s 55th Super Bowl at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, with the kickoff scheduled for 6:30pm ET (11:30pm GMT) and we’ve got the perfect cocktail for you to enjoy the game with – an Aviation G&T.
Attendance at this year’s game will be much lower than usual due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the NFL announcing that the final attendance number for fans at this evening’s Super Bowl LV will be around 25,000. Of that total, there will be 7,500 vaccinated health care workers who were given free Super Bowl tickets by the NFL.
This year, Grammy-nominated artists Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan will sing the national anthem together at Super Bowl LV, while Grammy-winning singer H.E.R. will perform “America the Beautiful.”
With many more people watching this year’s Super Bowl in the comfort of their own home, what better way to enjoy the game than with Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds’ Aviation American Gin and an Aviation G&T in hand.
To prepare, you will need 50ml Aviation American Gin, 150ml Tonic Water and some lemon and lime. Pour some Aviation Gin into a glass filled with ice and top with Tonic Water. Then gently stir and garnish with a Lemon & Lime Wheel for the perfect refreshing Super Bowl cocktail.
Canadian-American actor, producer and co-owner of Aviation American Gin, Ryan Reynolds, famously said,
“I’ve tried every gin on the planet and Aviation is, hands down, the best.”
Aviation American Gin is the world’s highest rated gin (97 points, Wine Enthusiast), establishing a new style of American gin that is softer and smoother, with juniper in the background and citrus and floral notes in the front, making it the perfect base for a variety of cocktails. It has been created by a unique bartender/distiller partnership and is crafted in small batches in Portland, Oregon.
