Best Things to Drink at Your Tailgate Party

It’s always the food that gets all our care and attention when we’re preparing for a tailgate. With so much focus on between grilling chicken wings, serving up steaming bowls of chili, and making sure you’ve packed everybody’s favorite condiments, drinks are often overlooked. Now, we’re not saying that they’re ever forgotten (that would be the worst tailgating mistake you could make), but rather that they deserve a little more love and attention: They will be central to your tailgate party after all.
