The Bulldog Smash

Yield: 16 servings

A sweet Caribean classic with a Georgia twist



    • 4 cups Thirteenth Colony rye whiskey

    • 2 cups Blended Family No. 4 peach liqueur

    • 2 cups Giffard Ginger of the Indies liqueur

    • 4 cups fresh-squeezed orange juice

    • 4 cups cranberry juice

    • Orange slices, for garnish

    • Cherries, for garnish


  1. Chefs’ notes: “This batched drink is inspired by the classic Bahamian cocktail the Goombay Smash as a tribute to the national champion Georgia Bulldogs. Our version replaces the rum with rye whiskey and peach liqueur but retains its subtropical vibes with fruit juices and a splash of Giffard ginger liqueur. We like the way the rye holds its own with the sweet fruit flavors.”

  2. Pour all ingredients except garnishes into a clean 1-gallon jug (any leftover tea/lemonade/milk jug will do). Shake to combine. Put in cooler to transport. At the tailgate, fill 16-oz. stadium cups with ice. Give the jug another few shakes.

  3. If it’s been sitting for a while, then pour cocktail over ice. Garnish with an orange slice and a cherry.
