The Buckeyetini, An Ohio State Cocktail

If you’ve read our ‘About Us‘ section, you know that Steph and I are both proud alums of THE Ohio State University. With the college football season kicking off this weekend, we thought it would be fun to dedicate this Friday’s cocktail to our favorite team!

Not only is this cocktail scarlet, but it’s also apple flavored, so it pretty much screams fall! Since the game starts at 8 pm, the addition of the Cranberry Red Bull (thanks Yvonne and Gavin!) will make sure you don’t doze off at half time. And, in an effort to bring in some grey (to get our ‘scarlet and grey’), we used silver sprinkle sugar for the rims of the glasses.

Since Ohio State doesn’t play till Monday, you’ve got a few days to go and get your ingredients. GO BUCKS! BEAT VIRGINIA TECH!! (Sorry Hokie fans, we still love you!)

Buckeye Punch

2 oz. Sour Apple Schnaps
1 oz. Vodka
2oz. Cranberry Red Bull

Grey (silver) sprinkles for rim

Prepare your glass. Pour silver sprinkles into a shallow bowl.  Rub a lemon wedge around the rim, turn the glass upside down and twist in the sprinkle bowl.

Pour all ingredients except Red Bull into cocktail shaker. Fill with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into glass. Add chilled Red Bull and stir gently. Cheers!
