I care deeply about the Super Bowl for two reasons: Food and Beverage.
I tend to care even more about the beverages! Especially if the game is a blow out. In addition to severing beer, put some kick into your kick off with Spiced Rum and Coke Football Jelly Shots
Almost everyone loves a classic Rum and Coke, but as a jelly shot? Oh yeah! And I think Spiced Rum gives it a little something extra. The football shape just makes things extra festive. Usually the men may not appreciate the effort, but the ladies will take notice. Also your prep shows you are into the game – even if you spend the game talking with the other girls, taking guesses at what Kim Kardashian will be naming her baby or talking Downton Abbey. Just make sure to shout at the refs every now and then.
To make the Jelly Shots:
Bring one cup of Coke to a boil in a small saucepan.
Spray mold with baking spray to help them slip out easier.
Remove from heat and sprinkle in gelatin. Let rest for 3 minutes. Whisk until gelatin has fully dissolved.
Add ½ cup cold Coke.
Add ½ cup Spiced Rum.
Pour into molds. Make sure to have the molds on a cookie sheet to help stabilize the molds when being transferred in and out of the fridge.
Pipe on whipped cream and you are ready for the game.
Regardless if your team is in the Super Bowl or not… you can always cheer for Team Jelly Shot and be sure a win. Peabody loves ice hockey (she plays!) and all things baking! Check out her great stuff at her blog site Culinary Concoctions by Peabody and her Tablespoon profile.
