Squash the Julep at Alcove

Talk about crushing the game with a mason jar of cognac, rum, brown butter squash and mint in Tom Schlesinger-Guidelli’s newest spot in the West End. Grab a bite of the restaurant’s sharing platters while admiring the view of the water. 50 Lovejoy Wharf

Heli Yeah at Sonsie

Tom Brady and Sonsie go all the way back. The Pats quarterback used to spend time at the very place that created a drink to honor him. The Heli Yeah is a Tom Brady-inspired cocktail with Michter's rye, maple syrup, orange and smoked applewood. What a score. 327 Newbury St.

Get ready to jam to Maroon 5 when the pop band lights up the stadium during the halftime show with a glass of Rhythm Nation. The rum-based drink with demerara, angostura and orange bitters will get you to sing along. 2 Winter Place

Can I Kick It? at Lion’s Tail

Will he or won’t here? It’s always the question when the kicker steps up for a fieldgoal attempt...unless its the Patriots and then we all know Stephen Gostkowski will make it. Trim the tension by sipping on some gin, aperitif, lavender, Cocchi Americano and lemon oil 3 as the ball soars through the uprights. 354 Harrison Ave.

Gronk Spiked Punch at Ward 8

The tight end’s legacy translates into a brandy-based cocktail with a hint of citrus and a dash of spices. You can think of it as the product of sugar, spice and everything nice. 90 N Washington St.
