The Super Bowl is all about Los Angeles this year.
First, the big game is set to go down in Inglewood’s SoFi Stadium. It’s been 30 years since the City of Angels played host to sport’s main event of the year and the city is living up to the challenge by welcoming the NFL to its new massive, state-of-the-art stadium. What’s more, L.A. is making a personal appearance with the Rams taking on the Cincinnati Bengals. It’s been three years since the Rams made a Super Bowl appearance and 22 since their last championship win.
Super Bowl LVI is truly embodying L.A. legend Tupac Shakur’s testament that California knows how to party with its star-studded halftime show. The performance will feature L.A. natives Kendrick Lamar and Dr. Dre, in addition to Eminem and Mary J. Blige.
What’s particularly on our minds is that the king of the LBC is part of the halftime show lineup. Just based on Snoop Dogg’s features alone (we’re going to get a bit of “The Next Episode,” right?), we know the performance will be unparalleled.
As we get ready for game day, one song really stands out: “Gin and Juice.” It’s a Snoop essential, but it also is a reminder to get ready to make the perfect Super Bowl cocktail. As the lights go down on the Sofi Stadium stage, the right choice of beverage is certainly a Long Beach Lemonade.
Courtesy of Snoop himself, the recipe centers on his spirit brand, Indoggo, which he initially ventured into to make a gin that evokes the laidback California lifestyle by being easy to mix and drink. As for the Long Beach Lemonade, the cocktail combines the dueling, but complimentary flavors of the strawberry gin with fresh lemonade for a Snoop-approved gin ‘n juice experience.
See the full recipe below.
