Major League Cocktails

After many long, cold months, it's finally time for the start of the new baseball season. We hope you're as excited as we are for its return.

But to toast your team's upcoming season, you need something more than just a cold brewski. So we suggest you make one of the tasty and refreshing cocktails below that call for a jigger of beer. (They also pair well with other ballpark favorites: hot dogs, peanuts and Cracker Jack.)

And if you're looking to make something truly MVP worthy, we also unearthed a pair of old-timey recipes with a baseball connection.

Play ball!
