As you may have read in some of my earlier posts on Cocktail Culture, I am a NY Giants fan. While I am, of course, deeply saddened by their inability to make the Super Bowl (let alone the playoffs) I am excited that the Baltimore Ravens will have a chance at winning it all! This may seem unorthodox for a Giants fan, but I went to college in Baltimore and after living there for four years, I love Charm City, and I will be rooting for Baltimore this Sunday!
Since I unfortunately can’t be in Baltimore for the Super Bowl (don’t feel too bad, I was in Baltimore when the Ravens beat the Patriots last Sunday and it was fabulous) I’m going to try to bring Baltimore to me. In one of my previous posts from this summer: “Crab cakes and football”…and Crushes, I wrote about a trip to Baltimore that involved lots of Orange (and other flavored) Crushes. Both crab cakes and Crushes will definitely be making an appearance at my Super Bowl gathering this Sunday, along with Old Bay to season my fries and wings, and of course some Berger Cookies for dessert.
Here’s a recipe for an Orange Crush:
- 1 part Absolut Mandarin
- 1 part Hiram Walker Triple Sec
- 1 part Fresh squeezed Orange Juice
- Splash of Lemon-Lime Soda
- Orange slice garnish
Enjoy and Go Baltimore!
