Whether you are a Baltimore or San Francisco fan, this Sunday’s Super Bowl is sure not to disappoint. But even if your football team didnt make it to the end of the season, you can still join in the team spirit of avid fans with these themed cocktails.
BALTIMORE RAVENS – THE RAVEN
The Raven is a dark and mysterious cocktail that adapted from other recipes. I like this one because it contains ingredients that are more common in bars than those found in other Ravens.
* 1 oz vodka
* 1 oz rum
* 1 oz blue curacao
* 1/2 oz Chambord
1. Pour the vodka, rum and blue curacao into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
2. Strain into a highball glass filled with fresh ice.
3. Slowly pour the Chambord over the back of a bar spoon so it floats on top.
*The key to this drink is the layer which is rather easy to obtain in this mix as the blue shaken mix is much lighter than the Chambord and they rarely break the layers unless stirred.
SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS – THE BAY BOMBER
Crisp and refreshing like the city, it’s a drink every fan will enjoy!
*2 tablespoons kosher salt
*2 tablespoons sugar.
*2 tablespoons ground fennel seeds
*1 lime wedge
*8 ounces gin
*2 cups chilled chopped peeled cucumber
*2 cups chilled chopped honeydew melon
*6 ounces fresh lemon juice
*1 cup honey
*5 cups ice
*Cucumber wheels and honeydew melon balls, for garnish
- Make the sweet fennel salt: In a medium bowl, mix the kosher salt, sugar and ground fennel seeds
- Make the cocktail: Moisten half of the outer rim of 6 chilled white wine glasses with the lime wedge and coat lightly with the sweet fennel salt
- In a blender, combine all of the remaining ingredients except the garnishes and blend until smooth. Pour the drink into the glasses. Garnish the drinks with the cucumber wheels and honeydew melon balls.
