Posted on: May 17th, 2013 by PhoenixBites No Comments

If you spend enough time in casinos or sports bars, you will certainly run across your share of unusual drinks. Check out this list for some unusual cocktails and drinks that you have to try at least once.

49ers Gold Rush

During football season, especially during the playoffs, a popular sports bar drink is the 49ers Gold Rush.  The color alone is enough for most football fans but it also hits harder than a middle linebacker.


  • Goldschläger – 1/2 ounce
  • Tequila, gold – 1/2 ounce

Mixing Instructions:

  • Take one chilled shot glass and mix ingredients.  Go 49ers!

An Italian Surfer With a Russian Attitude

Although considered “too girly” by some, a smooth drink to sip on after a long session at the tables is An Italian Surfer With a Russian Attitude.  It’s smooth and doesn’t hit you hard enough to keep you from enjoying the rest of your evening.


  • Amaretto – 1 Part
  • Coconut Rum – 1 Part
  • Vodka – 1 Part
  • Cranberry Juice – 2 splashes
  • Pineapple Juice – 2 splashes

Mixing Instructions:

  • Take a cocktail shaker with ice and add ingredients.  Shake well and strain into a glass.

300 Spartans

When you and your buddies feel like you are ready to take on the world but need a little motivation, try a 300 Spartans.  The mix of Jägermeister, Rum, and Tequila will have you feeling no pain even if you spend your entire paycheck at the tables.


  • Jägermeister – 1/2 ounce
  • Spiced Rum – 1 ounce
  • Tequila, gold – 1/2 ounce
  • Tomato Juice – 6 ounces
  • Tabasco Sauce – 1 teaspoon

Mixing Instructions:

  • Take a cocktail shaker with ice, add ingredients, shake well.  Strain into glass.  Collect keys and hide them. 🙂
