Beyond Beer: Keeping with the Tex-Mex spirit here are a couple of sporty margarita cocktail recipes from Jerry James Stone.

Roasted Grapefruit & Habanero Margarita
Instead of being tart as one would expect from a grapefruit-based drink, this margarita is slightly smokey, crisp, and just a little spicy. It’s perfect for winter. It’s also perfect for the Big Game as there isn’t a food or snack it won’t go with.
