Notre Dame football returns to our lives this weekend, when the Fighting Irish take on the Texas Longhorns in Austin on Saturday night.

Though we have to wait a week to tailgate at a home game, we can still watch the game with some great food and drinks at home or at a bar.

And the perfect drink to kick off Notre Dame football season is the Notre Dame Pick-Me-Up.

It’s not clear why this drink is named after Notre Dame, but it’s definitely light and refreshing enough to give you a little pick-me-up if you need it during the game.

Here’s the recipe:

  • 1 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Light rum
  • 1 oz Triple sec
  • 2 oz Orange juice
  • 1 tsp powdered sugar
  • Splash of Ginger ale
  • Ice cubes

Put the liquor and sugar in an 8 oz. glass, then add in the orange juice and Ginger ale. Stir well with a spoon. Serve immediately.
