Like us, you're probably just a regular person with a job, a dog, and an empty bank account, so this weekend won't be a three-day bender chockablock with coke, caviar, and potentially criminal activity. But if you're either sexy or desperate enough, you could try to con your way past the ropes of some super-exclusive Super Bowl bash like Saturday's invite-only Maxim Party at the Raleigh Hotel.

Always the spot to rub shoulders (and other body parts) with A-list athletes, movie stars, rappers, pseudo-celebs, and other vaguely famous human flotsam, Maxim's yearly football fiesta is also a great place to get really, really wasted. And the 2010 edition will be awash in Patrón of all kinds -- Silver, Reposado, and Añejo -- because the tequila pusher is a major sponsor.

Especially for this Saturday's party, restaurateur and cocktail genius Kevin Patricio of NYC's Choptank has developed a roster of sophisticated and superpotent drinks. There will be a fancy-ass Margarita, a Jalisco High Tea, the Max Libre (um, it's marketing-speak for a Cuba libre with Pepsi Max), and something called the Armani Signature Code. But Patricio's personal favorite is the Maxim Blitz, a variation on the classic Chinchona, that he calls: "a slow sipper for the serious drinker."

Now, if you're neither lucky, nor sexy, nor desperate enough to con your way past those ropes, check out the jump for full drink recipes. At least, then, you can get Blitzed in the privacy of your own home while watching after-the-fact satellite footage of the party.
