Hope everyone enjoyed a labor-free weekend! Or at least a reduced amount of labor. I certainly took advantage of some lazy-time on Saturday, watching every college football game I could find on TV starting with my Buckeyes at 11 am.

I am so glad college football is back in season. And to celebrate I kicked off the day with a beermosa. Initially I thought it sounded really gross to mix beer with liquor, and then orange juice. But don’t knock it until you try it! I was pleasantly surprised by this beverage, and it may be a staple for every 11am game. It’s the mimosa for football fans!


Serves one


2 oz orange flavored vodka

6 oz light beer, of your choice

4 oz orange juice


  1. Pour vodka into a large glass, followed by beer and then orange juice. Stir and enjoy!

DAAANGEROUS! Those sound PERFECT for a tailgate! In college we drank “lunchboxes” which was beer, OJ, and a bit of grenadine…not quite as potent as these beermosas ;) Sadly! LOL!

I’ve made spiced rum apple cider before a cold early game. It was sooo good and very dangerous.

Great idea! Perfect early game time drink!

This sounds do fun! I’m not a huge fan of beer so masking it with orange juice sounds perfect to me!

I have a summer cocktail with beer and vodka that is a staple. I need to try this so, I can carry the tradition out in the fall.

BRILLIANT idea. The BF is going to go crazy for this!
