Super Bowl 2015 Cocktails

IMG_7427

The Super Bowl is just a few days away! And no matter who you are cheering for, I’ve got an awesome cocktail recipe that you can share with your family and friends so they can show their team spirit.

If you’re a Seahawks fan, I’ve made a blue and green Seahawk Slammer, and for all you Patriot fans, I’ve made a red and blue Patriot Punch. These two cocktails have the same base recipe, so you can easily serve both at your Super Bowl Party and make everyone happy!

For these cocktails, I used Blue Chair Bay Coconut Rum. This rum is inspired by the island lifestyle of multi-platinum singer-songwriter Kenny Chesney. He’s poured his heart and soul into every step of the creation of this rum, from beach to bottle, and it shows.

Kenny Chesney wanted to develop a truly great rum that he would be proud to share with his friends, and that’s exactly he did. By working with one of the world’s great master blenders, Mike Booth, he was able to create a blend of true beach aged rum. This rum is even created at the Caribbean’s last true beachside distillery, right on the ocean.

Blue Chair Bay is available in four flavors: White, Coconut, Coconut Spiced and Banana. The white rum is crystal clear, balanced, and has gentle spice notes. The Coconut Spiced Rum is the new way to spice, where cinnamon, nutmeg and clove meet beach-aged rum and natural coconut for a whole new way to experience the islands. The banana rum tastes like they took your Grandmother’s prize banana pudding and infused it into the highest quality rum. It’s amazing.

The coconut rum, featured in both of these cocktails is robust yet easy with a just-cracked-open-coconut character (all natural) and an incredibly smooth mouthfeel. Both of these cocktails start with coconut rum, and then I add Blue Curaçao and pineapple juice. Then for the Seahawk Slammer, I added melon liqueur for added sweetness and the bright green color, then finished it with a lemon slice. For the patriot punch, I added a little maraschino cherry juice for the red color and sweetness, and garnish it with a maraschino cherry.
