October means the fall season is in full swing, with pumpkin patch picking, apple pie baking and spooky costume making at an all-time high. When pumpkin carving parties, bonfires and fall celebrations come into play, these three liquor bottles will have you covered. Easy sipping whether neat or on the rocks, any of these would be great in a party punch, or specialty cocktail as well.
Blackwell Jamaican Black Gold Rum
Blackwell Jamaican Black Gold Rum goes well on the rocks, but can also be used in a fun party cocktail for serving to a group. With the distinct “Black Gold” style of this rum, the elegant depth and perfect smoothness make it a perfect bottle to stock up on. The finish of charred oak and winter spices will warm the palate, adding a flare to the finish. Serve this at your October celebration party, it’ll be easy to share.
Try this easy rum punch recipe:
- ½ cup Blackwell Jamaican Black Gold Rum
- 1 cup pineapple juice
- 1 cup of orange juice
- ¼ cup lime juice
- orange and pineapple slices
Simply add these ingredients into your pitcher and serve with a lot of ice.
Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey
Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey is amazing all by itself, whether neat or on the rocks. To elevate this liquor, simply serve it as a shot with a salted rim, or shaken (martini style) with a salted rim. The rich, smooth peanut butter taste lends to the whiskey flavor. The taste of this liquor speaks for itself. It’s great alongside a chocolate covered pretzel as well. Serve this at a pumpkin carving or picking event, it’ll be a sweet and fun themed accompaniment.
Try making this Skrewball martini:
- 3oz SkrewBall Peanut Butter Whiskey
- chocolate covered pretzels
Simply rim your glass with some salt (to spruce it up try sea salt, or crush a few chocolate covered pretzels). Shake the 3oz of Skrewball over ice and strain into your glass. Serve with a chocolate pretzel garnish.
Talisker Storm Single Malt Scotch
Talisker Storm Single Malt Scotch is the final recommendation for your fall bottle collection, and fittingly so. This scotch is a perfect way to wind down the night. Voted the Highlands Single Malt of the Year by Whisky Advocate in 2013, this is an intense and vibrant liquor. The mouth-coating palette brings a warm finish. Simply serve this drink neat, and make sure everyone gets a sip. This scotch will go perfect at a bonfire, roasting marshmallows with this scotch keeping you warm.
Whether your party planning hasn't started yet, or you already have one in the making, try these three bottles to make your fall get-togethers memorable. With few ingredients needed, as these liquors are great on their own, they’ll make a special complement for you and your friends to enjoy.
