Happiness Begins with the perfect cocktail. Just ask Joe Jonas, who teamed up with Tanqueray to create his own beverage just in time for the fall, the fittingly-named Cup of Joe. The singer told E!, "I've been a fan of Tanqueray for many years. Spending a lot of time in the UK, it's definitely something that I like to drink, my gin and tonics. When the concept came forward for me to actually make my own cocktail, it was a dream come true." 

Joe shared his Tanqueray cocktail recipe along with his must-haves for hosting a fall event, including snacks, drinking games, and, of course, some great music.

E!: Tell me about teaming up with Tanqueray and creating your own drink.
JJ: I'm a coffee lover and I have a couple cups a day. This is our version of an espresso martini. We did some really fun concepts and we ended up with this delicious cocktail. I think it's really easy to drink and it gives you a caffeine boost that you might need as well.

E!: What vibe or scenario do you picture with this drink? What event are we at with this drink?
JJ: It's the perfect drink to start out your night out. If you're at home and you want to have a nice classy cocktail or you're having a dinner party, I think it would it definitely impress your friends. It's delicious, it's refreshing, and I think it's great to start out the night with caffeine. 

E!: My first thought when I saw the recipe was tailgating. I'm not sure if you're a tailgating person, but I just picture this being a great drink to start out a long football day.
JJ: You're preaching to the choir. I'm eagerly waiting for football to come back.

Joe Jonas' Fall Snack Pick

Rob's Backstage Popcorn

"I have to keep it in the family and suggest Rob's Popcorn, which I launched with my brothers and our good Greg [Garbowsky] and his dad Rob [Garbowsky]. The popcorn is fantastic.
