Spirit Thursday: “Red River” shots

In honor of Saturday’s annual showdown between the University of Texas and the University of Oklahoma – formerly known as the Red River Shootout, and now a little more politically correct as the Red River Rivalry – we give you a couple of shot recipes suitable for a Cotton Bowl tailgate or any other lots near you.

For the idea, we turned to The Intoxicologist and these two beverages created by Cheri Loughlin.From the looks of the ingredients, Texas fans might have the tougher recovery on Sunday, not to mention the fact that the Longhorns are nearly-a-touchdown underdogs. Texas did pull off the upset last year, though, so Sooner fans don’t start celebrating yet. Just enjoy. Cheers!
