Spiked Salsas for Game Day

If you're serving beer on game day but are still craving your favorite cocktail, look no further than these adults-only salsas. They're inspired by mixed-drink classics like bloody marys and martinis and make a perfect pairing with the best brews. Food Network Kitchen even came up with the perfect dipper for each, like serving celery sticks instead of tortilla chips with a Bloody Mary Guajillo Salsa.

In the mood for a margarita? Combine salsa and the classic tequila drink — two Mexican party favorites — into one delicious green salsa. Roasted tomatillos, poblano chiles and scallions mesh seamlessly with the peppery and earthy notes of your favorite tequila in this Charred Tomatillo Margarita Salsa.

The salty, dry flavors of a dirty martini are thanks to vermouth and olive brine. Take those same ingredients plus pimento peppers, onions and garlic, and you’ve got the classic cocktail within this Dirty Martini Salsa, no shaker needed.
