Superbowl 53 Sunday Special: Atlanta’s Best Baked Wings in Coca Cola

By on February 1, 2019

Atlanta is not only the home of the superbowl this year, its the home of Coca Cola, the iconic

American  soft drink that has been enjoyed for years.  And yes, coca cola has been added to everything from chocolate cakes to cocktails,  Its fair to say that Coca Cola is America’s own.  Drink up.

Having friends over to watch the big game?  Looking for a go-to crowd pleaser?  This easy to make and easy to eat out of hand food is a win win.  Just remember to buy about 1-1/2 pounds of wings per person.  Yes,  I know it sounds like a lot, but trust me,  those wings will fly.

Stock up on other Atlanta specialties for the big came.  Home of the peanuts in the coke dish,  all you have to do is chill small bottles of coke and hand out salted peanuts.  Everybody knows what to do.  Yum!  And for the hard drinkers in your crowd, buy a bottle of rum and let them make up their own adlib rum and coca cola.

These are tried and true American specialties that just go with the Superbowl when it’s held in Atlanta, as it is this year. Mark Your calendars.

The logical go-withs to wings are large bowls of celery sticks, blue cheese dressing, and plenty of paper napkins to clean up.
