Sorry New York Jets and New York Giants fans, but it just wasn't your year. While neither New York team has a chance to compete for the Vince Lombardi Trophy, we still think the matchup between Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers verses Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos will be an entertaining one. So sit back, sip on one of these cocktails and enjoy.

Add Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Moscato and shake or stir lightly to mix. Add ice cubes to your serving glass, pour drink over the ice and garnish with the remaining mint. (Entertaining Tip: For a Carolina Panther's inspired cocktail, muddle a 1/4 cup of blueberries with your mint leave mix.)

Stir punch vigorously. Add soda to taste. Top entire punch with sliced orange discs. Serve over ice in traditional Mule Tins or in another receptacle of your choosing.
