We were given some sweet mead infused with coffee. I really don't like the taste, and won't be drinking it. Any ideas for how I can use it?

Invite some Beowulf re-enactors over for a feast and reading of the poem?
Binge watch Game of Thrones?
I was going to suggest starting a Renaissance fair but this is much more practical; always a problem keeping all those Beowulf reenactors busy. Perhaps the person with all the vinegar could send some over for the Grendl reenactor.
Love it! Is Grendl so mean and sour as to like vinegar? Or need it? (for what purpose?)
Yes, Grendl was actually an ancestor of Sneep.
Make bread with it like you would use beer for bread. Here is a link http://www.food.com/recipe...
Do you think it would work in coffee, a Tbs or 2 added in as a variant of Irish coffee and in lieu of a sweetener? Topped with whipped cream, of course. Or added into desserts that call for rum or other liqueurs, where a coffee flavor would be desirable, such as moistening the savoiardi in a Tiramisu. I know mead is meant to be served warmed (like cognac), but I wonder if it would be more palatable cold over ice--if it's a very sweet mead, the flavors can be cloying. As a sweetener for iced coffee. As a flavoring/sweetener in homemade ice cream or in a cheesecake, again where the coffee flavor is desirable.

If you don't like the flavor straight, it will prabably carry over into whatever you put it in--but the bread sounds like a good idea.
But it was delicious! Really!
