If you're having your friends over to watch football on Sunday afternoon, it's important you have the right drinks ready. Although beer is popular among football fans, try to mix it up with frozen concoctions - you're not at the stadium, you don't need to drink out of a warm can. Here are some of the best cocktails to make for your football celebrations. 

1. Double-Threat QB Margarita 
Although this beverage is unlikely to beat you on its feet before throwing a touchdown, it is guaranteed to be both tasty and fun. Begin by mixing this drink like you would a traditional margarita - add 7 1/2 ounces of tequila, 3 3/4 ounces lime juice and 1 1/2 ounces Triple Sec to your party machine's jar. Then add 3 splashes of Orange Curacao for your "second threat" and vibrant orange color. Mix well with a full ice container for a perfect margarita.

2. Wild Ride 
It can be a wild ride to watch your team come out with a win after four quarters of football. While you're watching try mixing this rich, red drink in your Frozen Concoction Maker®

Start off by mixing 3 3/4 ounces Absolut Wild Tea Vodka, 2 1/4 ounces peach schnapps, 6 ounces mojito mix, 6 ounces raspberry puree, about 18 leaves of mint and some shredded ginger in your party machine's blender jar. Make sure the ice reservoir is filled and then turn it on for a smooth, think drink. Garnish with a lime or raspberry. This is an even better choice if you're favorite team wears red!

3. Caramel Apple 
What says fall better than football and apples? This recipe makes three servings so you may need to repeat it so that every guest gets a taste. Start off by chopping about 1 1/2 cups of apples. Mix these apples into your frozen concoction maker's jar with 3 tablespoons of caramel sauce, 6 ounces of apple juice and 6 tablespoons vanilla yogurt. Fill the ice reservoir and toss a pinch of cinnamon into the jar before blending for a smooth cocktail. Serve in martini glasses with apple-wedge garnishes for a seasonal football treat.
