Cocktails and Wontons
From mixologist Jeremy Parsons, this list of cocktails are colorful, innovative, and plenty of fun! He suggests to add in Wontons for an impressive and dynamic twist on traditional Super Bowl appetizers. You can find Parson on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
The Hail Mary
- 2 oz. Stolichnaya Vodka
- 5 oz. tomato juice
- ¼ oz. pickle juice
- 8 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
- 6 dashes of Tabasco Chipotle sauce
- 2 dashes of Tony Chacheres Cajun Spice
- Squirt of fresh lemon juice
Mix all ingredients into a shaker half full of ice and pour into a glass.
The secret to this cocktail is making sure you shake it all up very well and pour everything into the glass. Do not rim your glass for one simple reason, if you rim your glass the only thing you are going to taste for the first four sips is the rim. It ruins your palate for anything else especially if you are eating while enjoying this terrific cocktail.
Make it Rain Margarita
- 2 oz. Patron Silver Tequila
- ¾ oz. Grand Marnier
- 2 oz. Fresh lime juice
- 1 oz. fresh squeezed Orange juice
- ½ oz. Lemon juice
- ½ oz. agave syrup or honey
Pour all ingredients into a shaker half full of ice. Shake until well mixed and pour over ice into a glass. Shaking fresh fruit juice with any spirit produces a chemical reaction that makes the flavour of the cocktail exponentially more flavourful and provides amazing texture to the beverage.
- 1.5 oz. Jack Daniels honey
- 3 oz. Lemonade
- 3 oz. Fevertree ginger beer
- 1 slice of car acara orange
Shake lemonade, orange and JD honey together in a shaker half full of ice. Pour into a glass and top with ginger beer. Make sure to shake the Cara Cara with the alcohol to make a chemical reaction occur in the shaker and to add some great texture to the drink. Cara Cara oranges have a grapefruit and tangerine quality to the flavour which gives this drink an amazing flavour and nose.

Smoked chicken wings, slathered in a white BBQ sauce. It sounds odd, but it is positively addictive!
Dry Rub Ingredients
- 18-24 fresh chicken wings and/or sections
- 2 tbsp Ancho chile powder
- 2 tbsp sweet paprika (use spicy variety for more kick)
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- 3-4 tsp grapeseed oil (olive oil will suffice, I use grapeseed oil as it has a higher burn point)
White Sauce Ingredients
- 2 cups mayonnaise
- 1 cup white vinegar
- ½ cup apple juice (fresh cider would work well also)
- 4 tsp granulated sugar
- 2 tsp horseradish
- 2 tsp black pepper
- 2 tsp fresh lemon juice (I squeezed a half a large lemon)
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp cayenne pepper
- Combine the dry ingredients from the rub in a bowl
- Place the chicken in a pan, drizzle and coat with the oil and then coat with the dry rub
- Prepare the grill for two zone/indirect grilling with coals and smoke wood on one side and nothing on the other
- Target temperature of the grill is 250-275
- Place the rubbed chicken wings on the side with no heat, a chunk of smoke wood on the coals and close the lid
- Prepare the white sauce by combining all the sauce ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine
- Refrigerate until time to serve
- Once the chicken wings reach 150 degrees internal temperature (about an hour of cook time), then stoke up the fire and sear the wings to get them up to 160 degrees and firm/crisp up the skin
Then serve with a bowl of the white sauce, dunking the chicken wings as you eat

- ½ tsp cayenne pepper
- 2 tbs brown sugar
- 1 can diced green chilies

- Mise en place – get all ingredients together first!
- Preheat the grill for direct grilling.
- Season both sides of steak.
- Grill steak until medium rare or medium.
- Remove steak to rest.
- Add additional charcoal to grill as needed to cook chili in Dutch oven, about 20 in total.
- When charcoal briquettes are ready, place ten on Dutch oven lid.
- Place Dutch oven over bottom coals with lid on to preheat.
- Brown bacon.
- Remove excess grease.

A couple of quick notes about the recipe and techniques I used:
- When grilling the steaks, I used lump charcoal and standard briquettes.
- The steak rub is Brazos Legends “Sizzlin’ Steak Rub”.
- Cooking the steak to medium rare or medium would be best to help keep the steak as tender as possible.
- I kept the Weber Performer Grill lid on while cooking the Grilled Steak Chili in the Dutch oven.
- Keep only a few briquettes on the bottom under the Dutch oven – I had about 10 under mine.
- Stir chili every 25 – 30 minutes or so to keep the chili from sticking to the bottom.
- Cook time will vary depending on your conditions – Mine cooked for a little over an hour in the Dutch oven.
