How To Create a Signature Fantail – Smirnoff Ice

Football season has finally started and that means hosting friends with yummy treats.  Why not have a successful gathering with a signature cocktail?  Smirnoff Ice is the perfect drink because it’s a malted beverage with a citrus taste.  Honestly, it’s the type of cocktail that anyone can enjoy served by itself or on ice.

Take sharing a bottle of Smirnoff Ice to the next level by creating a special drink or Fantail.  The first item you need is a set of mason jars!  They’re fun and large enough to supply everyone’s drinking needs.  Number two, always provide decorative straws; they promote a festive spirit amongst your guests.  Most importantly, add a dish of fruit to compliment the original citrus taste.

Game Day wouldn’t be complete without an order of cheese nachos.  Enjoy the Baltimore Ravens inspired Fantail recipe below and share with us your favorite Smirnoff Ice cocktail:
