Captain Morgan Jack-O Blast, the original pumpkin spiced rum

For those looking for something for the season besides pumpkin beer, Captain Morgan returns with Jack-O Blast, the original rum pumpkin spirit.

This limited edition infused rum for fall revolutionizes the shots for the season. By blending their Caribbean rum with some of the favorite flavors of autumn—fresh pumpkin, cinnamon, and brown sugar—Captain Morgan has created a hit for any Halloween party.

Inspired by their Cannon Blast cannon ball-shaped bottle, Jack-O Blast is modelled to look like a Halloween pumpkin. The bold, round bottle even simulates the look of a carved jack-o-lantern when illuminated under a black light.

It is a must-have for any well-stocked bar this Halloween.

Captain Morgan Jack-O Blast is currently available nationwide in a 750 ml bottle for a limited time.

Best enjoyed well chilled as a fall-inspired shot, Jack-O’Blast can also be served as the featured ingredient in a number of seasonal drinks. Try a shot and a half shaken over ice with an ounce of Irish cream or as a warmer with hot cocoa or coffee. You can also add some fresh lime juice and make pumpkin daiquiris.

You can find Jack-O Blast, and other fun seasonal liquors, at local liquors stores like Wyatt’s Wet Goods which offer you an outstanding selection of autumnal items, such as a large variety of pumpkin spirits and beers. When it comes to selection, more is always merrier.

Celebrate Autumn with Heritage Hills Pumpkin Spice Liqueur

Heritage Hills Pumpkin Spice Liqueur is a predominately pumpkin beverage with sweet notes of oranges, vanilla, and graham crackers layered with cinnamon and cloves. It is seductive and long in the finish, allowing all of its pumpkin flavor to shine. It is not overtly syrupy, and pairs well with other spiced liqueurs and whiskeys.

It also performs nicely as a dessert cordial with roasted nuts, ice cream, or fruit cocktails.

The strength of Heritage Hill’s pumpkin cream liqueur is really how well it partners with other flavored spirits for a seasonal treat. Try it in an equal part combination with either Disaronno Amaretto or Frangelico for a “Nutty Pumpkin” cocktail. It also pairs well with whipped cream or marshmallow flavored vodkas.

For something special fitting the change in temperature, heritage-hills-pumpkin2 mix one part Heritage Hills Pumpkin Spice with two parts of your favorite cinnamon whiskey. I recommend the Maple Cinnamon from Feisty Spirits of Fort Collins.

However you choose to enjoy your adult pumpkin spice this fall, remember to drink responsibly.

Heritage Hills Pumpkin Spice is a perennial autumn release. You can find it locally, as well as some unique options for mixing partners, at Wyatt’s Wet Goods, along with a large variety of fun, seasonal treats.

Hail to the King-Vapor Distillery’s Pumpkin King Cordial

 

As we enter the Halloween season, for those pumpkin lovers looking for something stronger and more eclectic than pumpkin beer, try Pumpkin King Cordial from Boulder’s Vapor Distillery.

Vapor Distillery in east Boulder quickly made a name for itself with its innovation and award winning gins. Each year Master Distiller Ted Palmer produces an annual fall delicacy—Pumpkin King Cordial.

This handcrafted seasonal liqueur is made by blending roasted organic Baby Bear Pie pumpkins from local Munson Farms with fresh ground cloves, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, Madagascar Bourbon vanilla beans, and Vapor’s renowned Western style RHok Gin.

It’s a prized limited release that tastes like pumpkin pie in a glass.

Pumpkin King Cordial holds its own as a simple dessert drink over ice and a simple splash will brighten up any hot cocoa. It adds a touch of autumn romance when featured in a holiday martini.

Try these recipes at your next gathering or throughout the holiday season. pumpkin-king-cordial
