As the Seahawks prepare for battle with the Bears, local booze and coffee joints are gearing up for the game with special 'Hawks-themed drinks. Here's an overview of some of our favorites:
Most Inspired: Also the least alcoholic, Fonte Café offers The Beast Mode, a quad-shot Americano with cinnamon-vanilla breve foam in honor of Marshawn Lynch's infamous touchdown. Available until January 16.
Most Alcoholic: Jillian's Billiard Club slapped a new name on the Blue Hawaiian to create The Blue Hawk. Vodka, rum, gin, triple sec, pineapple juice, Sprite, and Curacao to turn it blue--this drink sounds fruity but with enough alcohol to make it worth the $8 they're asking.
Most Common: The Touchdown is served at many sports bars around Seattle, although some have changed the name. The Celtic Swell is calling it The Hawk Bomb and Fuel has the Seahawks shot. These green shots, although some small differences exist, typically include Red Bull, orange vodka, and Curacao.
Cheapest: Of course you can also just order green or blue Jell-O shots for cheap and sloppy Seahawks support. At Mac's Triangle Pub in White Center, Seahawks Berry Jell-O shots are just 12 cents when the Seahawks score a touchdown.
Best to Help You Wash Down Spicy Wings: The Blue Crush, available this Saturday at Wing Dome, is lemonade, vodka, Curacao, and muddled lime wedges, served in a pint for $5.
Let's hope these blue and green drinks are guzzled in celebration and not to drown sports fans' sorrows.
