We love a good food feud and for this year’s game, Boston and Philadelphia fans are getting serious about their respective stomping grounds. Both cities are banning each other’s signature dishes ahead of the big game, according to news reports. A park in Boston has even extended its ban beyond cheesesteak to all Philly-based foods including Philadelphia brand cream cheese and Crisco. No surprise, as these fans take their fandom very seriously.

Because of their devotion, we’re offering one more food-based battle— in the name of team spirit, of course. We’ve concocted two signature drinks perfect for Game Day: the Eagle’s Nest (left) and a Patriotic Sparkler (right). Just don’t expect these cocktails to make fans feel warm and fuzzy inside. Tensions are running high. Tom Brady is playing to maintain his winning streak (he’s never lost a Super Bowl with the Patriots), while the Eagle’s backup QB Nick Foles hopes to lead the team to its first Super Bowl win, ever. No pressure.

If your team didn’t make it all the way this season, whip up a consolation cocktail. We’ve got one for every team in the NFL.
