Sunday marks the first Miami Dolphins home game of the year, which means it's time to dust off those tents and charcoal grills that have been laying in your garage for the past eight months. It appears the Dolphins have raised their game on the field, so it's only fair you meet that intensity off of it. Anyone can fill a cooler full of Bud Light, throw some ice on it, and jump on the Turnpike. It's about time to spice up your tailgate, and throw down on some unique stuff that will be the talk of Gate H.

With a little help from our friends over at Tipsy Bartender I put together a fun list of tailgate drink ideas that will catch the eye of your neighbors.
