X-Rated Fusion Liqueur NBA Finals Inspired Cocktails

Game 5 of the NBA Finals is tonight. A perfect occasion to break out the adult beverages. If you’re going to have guests while the game is on and the only basketball players they can name are Lamar Odom, Carmelo Anthony, Kris Humphries and Tony Parker because of the women they are connected to (or were once connected to), no need to worry – you’re not alone.

Although their sports knowledge may be lacking, there is still time to get them into the spirit of the NBA Finals.  X-Rated Fusion Liqueur is here to help with some NBA-inspired cocktails.

You can whip up a few cocktails inspired by the two teams in the finals – Miami Heat and Dallas Mavericks – that way they’ll have something to cheer about.

If you need to hook them through other means, remind them that “Basketball Wives” star Jennifer Williams, drinks X-Rated Fusion Liqueur when she goes out with her girls (and often tweets about it) and that Gabrielle Union, even had them sponsor her birthday party last October.
