 Roll Over Beethoven

One of my favorite sources of inspiration comes from flipping traditional dessert combinations into a completely different food category. The basic fundamentals of a classic cherries jubilee dessert prepared with kirsch brandy is traditionally served table side with much flaming fanfare & transforms flawlessly into a smokin’ hot barbecue sauce. With a few staples in the starting line up, a refreshing combination of flavors are bound to take your tailgating provisions to the next level. Championship Cherries Jubilee ‘Cue Sauce begins with a bottle of everyday barbecue sauce but quickly becomes a special topper when blended with a few southern favorites & game day icons such as maraschino cocktail cherries, moonshine & a touch of smoky heat. Slather this irresistible combination over smoked or grilled specialties & sandwiches or use as a dipper for fries, onion rings & so much more.

Game Changer

Traditional cherries jubilee is a flambéed dessert prepared table side in fine dining establishments. Moonshine & barbecue sauce collide for a spectacular savory game day twist perfect for a number of your favorite swine dishes.

1 tsp vegetable oil
2 Tbsp minced sweet onion 
1/3 cup coarsely chopped maraschino cherries
3 Tbsp moonshine
1 cup barbecue sauce
1 cup water
1/2 tsp minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

Sauté the onion in the oil in a 2-quart saucepan over Medium-High heat 3 minutes or until softened. Add the cherries. Remove the pan from the burner & add the moonshine. Place back over the burner & cook 2 minutes or until most of the liquid evaporates. Stir in the barbecue sauce, the water & the chipotle peppers. Reduce the heat to Medium-Low. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally & cook 10 minutes. Remove from the heat. Use as directed.

The Extra Point 

When barbecue nachos or pizza come in to play, use this sauce to sail flavors over the line & into the zone.

Balance is key when building any recipe to create something stellar.
A flavor profile can inspire you to try a new twist on an old standard.
It can be a cocktail combination or a deliciously different appetizer.
These notions can usually be applied to a number of different applications in the kitchen.

 In the case of commercial barbecue sauce, the smoky notes tend to be strong.
To mellow, liquor & acidic ingredients can tone these down.
To counterbalance these additions, a touch of sweetness is in order.
Jams, fruit & sugars can step in to get the job done.
To spice things up, consider stirring in a tad bit of heat.
Chipotle peppers, fresh jalapeños, ground red pepper & hot sauce are good choices.
Taste as you go to create a winning combination of flavors the whole gang will love.
