Football rivalries are as old as the game itself. University of Georgia vs University of Florida is arguably one of the most notorious match ups since 1926. The two teams have meeting every season since 1926 and year after year the rivalry becomes more and more exciting. In the South football might as well be a religion, with Fall Saturdays devoted to game watching and tailgating. This year we teamed up with  to celebrate college football rivalries with delicious game day eats and mü cocktails that will kick your tailgate up a notch.   is one of our favorite go to beverages for celebrations anytime of the day but it is especially perfect for morning and day drinking.... which is clearly screams tailgating!
