Each of the John Howie Group restaurants will be offering a specialty Super Bowl XLVII (to be held in New Orleans) themed cocktail, with $1 going to The Kick Hunger Challenge for every one sold. At John Howie Steak, guests can enjoy a classic taste of the South with a Café Sazerac which features Woodinville Rye Whiskey, sweet vermouth, a raw sugar cube, coffee bitters and Absinthe wash stirred over ice, and strained into a martini glass. Seastar - Bellevue will feature the Howie Hurricane made with Cruzan Silver rum and a house mix of pineapple juice, Bordeaux cherry juice, pomegranate juice, house-made sweet & sour and Amaretto. The bar at Seastar in Seattle will be serving up the Pom Pom, a delicious combination of Pomegranate vodka, Aperol, cranberry juice and house-made fresh sour mix. Sport Restaurant & Bar is sporting two different drinks: the Super Bowl Hurricane and the Touchdown! The former is made up of dark rum, passion fruit syrup and Pog (juices from passion fruit, orange, and guava) and the latter is a drop kick of orange vodka dropped into Red Bull.

John Howie is on a mission to help Washington score big for Food Lifeline and defeat hunger. Never one to sit on the sidelines, the award winning chef/restaurateur is organizing a series of events as part of the "Kick Hunger Challenge" competition sponsored by Taste of the NFL, which has the potential to make a huge difference both nationally and in our local community. Howie, the Seahawks' chef representative for the Super Bowl (as part of the annual Taste of the NFL) is hoping to give Seattle the home field advantage by becoming the top fundraising city, in which case the TNFL will match what is raised locally. Those doubled dollars will go directly to Washington State’s Food Lifeline. The Challenge runs through February 2, 2013.
