It’s crazy how the holidays just flew by. Not to mention that we’re now officially coming to the end of January. But the best part is knowing the Superbowl is on the horizon! With the big game day a week away, this whole week I’ll be featuring some recipes perfect for any Superbowl gathering. To kick things off, here are two recipes using Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum and Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum to add some fun. This is the last of the Captain’s Table Challenge and it has been such a fun time coming up with recipes to fit the various themes. From Thanksgiving to Christmas and now, the Superbowl to end on a delicious note…
Just over a year ago I participated in the ‘Spice Up the Holidays’ campaign with my friends at Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum. This year, I’ve partnered up with them once again for ‘The Captain’s Table Challenge,’ a food-filled program where I’ll be highlighting the holidays with food and drink! Specifically, I’ll be sharing a food and drink recipe incorporating Captain Morgan’s Rum for recipes perfect for Thanksgiving, Holidays and even the Superbowl. To get in on the action, Chef Hugh Acheson will be reviewing all the recipes submitted during the three occasions and a winner will be chosen among the participating bloggers to award a trip to a Captain’s Table US Event in the spring of 2014 where they will be joined by Chef Hugh Acheson himself!
Even better is Captain Morgan is sharing their giving spirit by donating $1 to WhyHunger every time the hashtag #CaptainsTable is used across social media this holiday season. I would love to help them and would encourage you to utilize the hashtag so we can help raise as much money as possible for a great cause.
When it comes to the Superbowl, one of the first things that comes to mind are buffalo wings. In my mind, a good game isn’t complete without wings of some kind so as a nod to my favorite game day food, I made the popular snack food into a meal. Drunken Buffalo Chicken Legs are the big boy version to the wings and drummettes we’re used to. Using a touch of Captain Morgan rum with hot sauce and butter to coat seasoned chicken legs makes for a special meal, perfect for a Superbowl party…
2 to 3 pounds chicken legs, about 10 to 12 drumsticks
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, put through a press or finely minced
3/4 cup hot sauce, such as Frank’s Red Hot
3 tablespoons melted butter
Ranch dressing or blue cheese dressing
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a large baking pan with parchment paper or foil and place a cooling rack in the pan.
4 ounces juice of smashed blueberries
8 ounces Captain Morgan’s Black Spiced Rum
8 ounces pomegranate juice
8 ounces ginger ale
blueberries for garnish
fresh mint for garnish
Fill tall glasses with ice and set aside.
In a large pitcher, combine the blueberry juice, rum, pomegranate juice and ginger ale. Stir to combine and serve over ice. Garnish with blueberries and fresh mint.
