A Sunday Football Sipper Like No Other

Who doesn't love game-day booze to get the party stared? But, if you're not in the mood for a vodka martini or even beer that early in the day, we've got the perfect recipe for a sipper that blends two of our favorite orange juice eye-openers: the screwdriver and the mimosa.
To save some cash, we say you opt for prosecco over Champers since it's all mixed up anyway. And, if you've never tried the super-smooth Vikingfjord vodka at restaurants like Roka Akor, now you've got an excuse to experiment like a pro mixologist. Sure, this recipe might sound like a lot to take in before 4 p.m., but trust us when we say that the OJ softens up this boozy concoction so it goes down easy — maybe a little too easy.
