Tropical rum, Country Music and football tailgating might seem like an unusual mix, but Blue Chair Bay (the distillery owned by singing star Kenny Chesney) kicked off the relationship with a series pigskin friendly cocktail recipes.

We figured you might want to shake up a few while you check out the tailgating coverage coming your way this weekend and throughout the coming week. The Fall Snap below is a perfect option to serve up during your own tailgate party. Whether you throw on a Chesney CD is entirely up to you.
