Blake Lively Betty Buzz Brand Create Taylor Swift Inspired Cocktails
Ahead of the Super Bowl — or “Taylor Bowl” as many Swifties are calling it — the brand Betty Booze has dropped Taylor Swift-inspired cocktail recipes.
Swift was spotted recently supporting the brand, sipping on a Betty Buzz cocktail with Blake Lively, as she watched the Kansas City Chiefs play the New York Jets.
Lively, the founder of the brands Betty Buzz and Betty Booze and a friend of Swift, released five cocktail recipes. Each cocktail has a name that plays off of the singer’s songs.
Karma Is a Rye on the Chiefs
This cocktail was inspired by the song “Karma.” More specifically, a play on when Swift changed the lyrics during her Eras Tour stop in Buenos Aires, Argentina. “Karma is the guy on the Chiefs, coming straight home to me,” changing the word originally written as “screen” to “Chiefs.”
This drink calls for a mix of 1.5 ounces of whiskey or bourbon, pomegranate juice, agave to taste, and a bottle of Betty Buzz Sparkling Lemon Lime.
Better Than Revenge (49ers Version)
Inspired by the song “Better Than Revenge (Taylor’s Version),” this cocktail includes 1.5 ounces of Aperol, 1 ounce of orange juice, .5 ounces of simple syrup, and a bottle of Betty Buzz tonic water.
Loving Them Was Red
Another inspired Swifty cocktail causing a buzz is the Loving Them Red. It’s made up of Betty Buzz’s Meyer Sparkling Grapefruit, 1 ounce of cranberry juice, 3 dashes of Angostura bitters, and 1.5 ounces of vodka.
Other cocktails inspired by the singer include the Gold Rush Spritz made with tequila and End Game LVII made with beer.
Lively’s nonalcoholic Betty Buzz mixers were launched in 2021. Less than seven months after launching they sold 2.5 million bottles, Lively said to Forbes.
