'Barmageddon' Hosts Nikki Bella, Carson Daly Break Down The Show's Signature Cocktails
"Barmageddon" is a party, and what's a party without a few drinks named after its hosts, Blake Shelton, Carson Daly, and Nikki Bella?
At the “Barmageddon” premiere party, the music was bumping, the games were competitive, and the host’s signature drinks were flowing!
USA Insider correspondent Stephanie Gomulka caught up with Nikki Bella and Carson Daly as they celebrated the premiere of the new game show in true “Barmageddon” style: With a party. The duo broke down the signature cocktails that were being served at Blake Shelton’s Ole Red bar and restaurant in Nashville, including some familiar signature drinks they’ve both boasted about in the past.
The WWE Superstar kicked things off by explaining her Bella Peppa.
“I love myself a spicy, skinny margarita,” she explained. “You can never go wrong.”
Her drink is simple enough, taking jalapeno juice and adding margarita mix along with tequila and Grand Marnier. The end result is something that looks great and has a powerful kick to it — just like Nikki.
Next up is Shelton’s famous Blake-A-Rita, which is designed to be thrown together with things you’ve probably already got in your refrigerator. The drink mixes vodka with lemon-lime soda and lime juice (bottled or fresh-squeezed, your choice).
Daly doubled down on his famous love of Fresca, explaining how to make his signature cocktail, the Daly Double. He also took a moment to address the shortage that's been plaguing the country.
“I drink a little Kettle One vodka with a Fresca,” he said. “Fresca is in shortage right now, people. If you have Fresca in your town, please send it to my P.O. box, 27 ... I’m just kidding.”
The Daly Double mixes vodka, Fresca, and Grand Marnier with a dehydrated orange wheel to garnish. A pro tip from Daly, though, is to add “a little splash of pomegranate juice on top. That’s a refreshing cocktail.”
Lastly, the pair broke down the show’s self-titled cocktail, The Barmageddon Blitz. For this, you’ll need fruit punch, lemon-lime soda, orange and pineapple juice, Ole Smoky Hunch Punch, and a desire to have a good time playing games and living it up with your friends on “Barmageddon.”
