Presented by Twisted Tea Hard Iced Tea

(NAPSI)—From at-home game day parties to parking lot tailgates, here are four entertaining “twists” on the standard tailgate that will keep the crowd cheering, whether you’ll be watching football, NASCAR, baseball or soccer:

1. Go beyond your usual crew: Keep the group compatible and consider adding new friends to the mix to keep the conversation more interesting.

2. Perk the party up with Twisted Tea: Surprise your guests with an unexpected refreshing beverage with a kick: Twisted Tea. Twisted Tea Hard Iced Tea is a crowd-pleasing hard iced tea brewed with real tea leaves. With no carbonation and a 5% ABV, this twist on one of America’s favorite refreshments goes down smooth and is less filling than beer. When you pack the cooler with Twisted Tea, you go beyond what drinkers expect and keep the crowd having fun all day and all night.

3. Fire up the grill: Add a flavorful twist to your standard tailgate grub with these easy and twisted recipes:
