Fall Cocktail Bazaar: Berry Lemonade Mule

Posted by Arctic Wolf on October 7, 2018

Recently the folks at Smirnoff (well actually it was one of their media companies) reached out to me wondering if I was willing to feature some of their new flavoured products including the Smirnoff Spiked Sparkling Seltzer Malt Beverages on The Rum Howler Blog. I found the idea rather interesting. Although I am primarily a reviewer of spirits, I do share cocktail recipes from time to time as well. So I responded by saying that if they could send me product samples as well as recipe suggestions which I could make at home, then I would share the recipes which I liked in a sort of Cocktail Bazaar during the fall.

One of the first recipes they sent me was a Mule-style serving which mixes Smirnoff’s Spiked Sparkling Seltzer Lemonade with Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka, Lemonade and Ginger Beer. It is certainly a recipe which is easy to prepare at home. So I mixed one up and decided that this delicious combination should be the first recipe for my Fall Cocktail Bazaar.

It’s a dandy recipe, I suggest you try one as well.

Berry Lemonade Mule

2 oz. Spiked Sparkling Seltzer Berry Lemonade
1 oz. Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka
1 oz. Lemonade
1 oz. Ginger Beer
Ice
Raspberry and Lemon for Garnish

Add Smirnoff Spiked Sparkling Seltzer Berry Lemonade, Smirnoff No. 21 vodka, and lemonade to a tall mixing glass
Add ice and stir until well chilled.
Pour over ice into a mule mug
Top with Ginger Beer
Garnish with a fresh raspberry and lemon

Enjoy Responsibly!

The Anvil

Posted by Arctic Wolf on August 13, 2018

While driving to work this morning I learned that Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart has passed away. The Anvil was one half of one the greatest Tag Teams in the history of Professional Wrestling, The Hart Foundation, which consisted of Jim ‘The Anvil” Neidhart who was the muscle and Brett “The Hitman” Hart, who provided the finesse.

Neidhart honed his talent while wrestling for the Stampede Wrestling Promotion based in Calgary Alberta Canada and has been followed by his daughter Natalya,who has become a World Champion in her own right currently performing for the Raw brand for World Wrestling Entertainment.

My thoughts and prayers are with all who have been saddened by this loss.

About a year ago I designed a cocktail inspired by Jim Neidhart, and I thought I would share it once again as my small tribute to the many hours of entertainment The Anvil provided for me as a wrestling fan.

The Anvil

2 1/2 oz Alberta Premium 100% Rye Whisky
1/2 tsp Raspberry-Beet(down) Jelly
2 dashes Fees Whiskey Barrel Aged Bitters
Ice
Coil of (Lemon Peel)

Add the first three ingredients to a rocks glass over the ice cubes
Stir until the Raspberry-Beet Jelly is fully dissolved
Add Ice
Garnish with a Kiwi or Lemon Peel peel

Please Enjoy Responsibly!

Super Bowl Recipe #2: BUCKING BBQ BITES

Posted by Arctic Wolf on February 5, 2016

Yesterday, I published a recipe for a platter of delicious of chicken wings (Dab On ‘Em Wings). This recipe was probably one which appealed more to Panther fans than Bronco fans so today I thought I would bring forward a chicken platter for those who would cheer for the boys from the Mile High Stadium, the Bucking BBQ Bites. This is not my recipe, it was created by George Johnson from The Comfort of Cooking.

George’s Recipe combines chicken and bacon with a spicy sweet BBQ Sauce. The sauce is quite easy to make, just make sure you have some Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum on hand as it plays a starring role. Here is how to make these delicious tidbits:
Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum

Spicy Sweet BBQ Sauce

1 1/2 cups Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Chile Sauce
1/2 cup Captain Morgan® Original Spiced Rum
1/4 cup Low-sodium Soy Sauce
1/4 cup Ketchup
1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce
2 garlic cloves (crushed)
1 teaspoon Ground Dry Mustard
Ground black pepper, to taste

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over low heat
Bring to a boil
Reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes
Stir occasionally
Use immediately, or store in refrigerator until ready to use.

I recommend that you may the sauce the day before the game and refrigerate it. If you don’t use it all up, don’t worry. The sauce tastes great with any recipe which calls for a tangy BBQ sauce.

Now that we have the sauce made. it is time to get on to those delectable chicken and bacon bites. (And there is no reason not to enjoy a Captain & Cola while everything is cooking.)
