The name of this cocktail pertains to the Harbaugh brothers who are coaches of the opposing teams in Super Bowl XLVII. The unprecedented football match-up aside, it is a spectacular drink.

The base is Camarena Silver Tequila infused with a jalapeno pepper and on top of this spice are layers of fruit. The blood orange juice is the star of the show and this dark citrus fruit is in season during the winter months, making this drink even more appropriate for the big game in February.
