Super Bowl Fare with a Sweet Touch of Honey and a Kick of Rye
What do you get when you mix an environmentally friendly canned cocktail that mixes premium aged rye with fresh lemon and local NY State wildflower honey with comfort food that is perfect for game day? You get amazing Super Bowl deliciousness that’s not just easy to make for the entire group watching the game, but also a canned cocktail that perfectly pairs with these dishes and can be placed side by side with the beers in the cooler.
The following Super Bowl recipes are made with Siponey lightly bubbly canned cocktails that are inspired by a classic highball – a bright mix of flavor from aged rye whiskey and lemon juice, with a touch of honey sweetness – carbonated to perfection.
Siponey Beef Stew
Yes, you can make a super comforting and delicious stew with Siponey. The hint of sweetness and carbonation tenderizes the beef as it cooks, and just trust us, it’s perfect for this cold weather.
4-5 slices of bacon, chopped into 1-inch strips
2 lbs beef chuck (sometimes called “stew meat”
1 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped into ¼ inch chunks
3 carrots, chopped
2 potatoes, cut into 2 inch pieces
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 tsp Kosher salt
3 tbsps all purpose flour
1 tbsp butter
½ can of siponey
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups beef stock
½ tsp thyme
Small bunch parsley
2 bay leaves
Dry the beef with paper towels to remove excess moisture. This helps the browning process.
Heat Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the bacon. Brown and remove with a slotted spoon, keeping the rendered bacon fat in the pot.
Add the beef to the pan and work in batches. DO NOT CROWD THE PAN. You want a nice brown sear on both sides, so 6 pieces should do for each round.
After you’ve seared and browned all the beef and set aside, add olive oil to the pot. Add the vegetables (minusthe garlic), potatoes and salt. Toss to coat and cook for a few minutes until veggies start to soften, 5 minutes or so.
Add the beef and bacon back into the pot, sprinkle with the flour and 1 tbsp of butter. Toss the meat to coat and cook for 2 minutes to remove that raw flour taste.
Add the Siponey, beef stock, garlic, and the herbs. Simmer on the stove for an hour until nice and thickened.
Serve the stew in a bowl and enjoy!
1 lb chicken wings (party wings)
1 tbsp Kosher salt
½ tbsp Cayenne pepper
1 tsp onion powder
½ tsp garlic powder
1 cup Siponey (save the rest for the glaze)
4 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tbsp whiskey
1 tbsp honey
Blue cheese (optional, for garnish)
Set a large pot of water over high heat. Add salt, cayenne, onion powder, garlic powder, and Siponey. Add the wings (the water doesn’t have to be hot yet, don’t worry) and stir.
Bring the water/wing mixture to a boil and let the chicken wings boil for an additional 10 mins. Once they float to the top, they are ready.
Line a sheet pan with tin foil and spray with cooking spray. Shake off the wings and place on the sheet pan. Broil on medium-high for 10 minutes or so, keeping an eye so they don’t burn. Flip and broil on the other side for the same time.
While the wings are broiling, melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the rest of the Siponey can, whiskey and honey and stir to combine. Let the mixture boil and reduce for a few minutes and remove from heat.
When the wings are done, brush or drizzle with the butter-Siponey glaze and sprinkle with blue cheese crumbles. Enjoy!
