New Year’s Eve On Ice

As the New Year approaches, we could all use some ideas to make our parties just that little bit more festive. There is, of course, the notorious Crosby’s Tears beer from Philadelphia (I imagine it tastes like Canada), but here are some other hockey-themed drinks you can make so you’re good and hungover during the Winter Classic. Please consume responsibly.
