Fall Cocktail Bazaar: Pumpkin Spiced Shotte

Posted by Arctic Wolf on October 29, 2018

My Fall Cocktail Bazaar was inspired by the recipes (and the samples) sent to me by the media team which represents Smirnoff which is a Diageo owned Vodka Brand. Diageo also owns the Captain Morgan brand and the same company which handles media relations for the Smirnoff brand does the same for Captain Morgan. So it was not really a surprise to me when they reached out and asked me to include at least one Captain Morgan inspired recipe in my Bazaar as well. In that vein, here is a great Halloween recipe from Captain Morgan which uses both their Pumpkin Spiced Rum and their Coconut flavoured Captain Morgan LocoNut, as well as a nice helping of coffee and whipped cream:

Pumpkin Spiced Shotte

1 oz. Captain Morgan Jack-O’Blast
1 oz. Captain Morgan LocoNut
2 oz. Cold Brew
Ice
Whipped Cream, Cinnamon
Carmel Drizzle

Combine Jack-O’Blast, LocoNut and cold brew in a metal shaker with ice
Shake Until the outside of the shaker begins to frost
Pour into 2.5 oz. shot glass rimmed with cinnamon
Top with Whipped Cream and a caramel drizzle.

Enjoy Responsibly!

Note: Captain Morgan Jack-O’Blast Pumpkin Spiced Rum is a Limited Edition Spiced Rum meant to inhabit the “shots” category and was the first the first pumpkin spiced rum offering available. The premise of the spiced flavour is ‘autumn in a shot glass’ as Captain Morgan has blended Caribbean rum with fall flavors of pumpkin and cinnamon (as well as other autumnal spices) creating what they hope will be an insanely delicious shot. The Spirit is bottled at is bottled at 30 % alcohol by volume and you may click on the following link to read my previously published review:

Note: Captain Morgan LocoNut is a gluten-free blend of Caribbean Rum, Coconut Liqueur, Spice and Natural Flavours, and it arrives in a nifty scratch and sniff coconut shaped (and apparently scented) round rum bottle .

According to the Captain Morgan:

After blasting into the shots category with CAPTAIN MORGAN Cannon Blast, CAPTAIN MORGAN LocoNut is shaking things up with its new coconut-flavored shot which comes in a coconut-shaped bottle, smells like a coconut and yeah, you guessed it, tastes like a coconut. It’s the perfect shot to enjoy responsibly with friends, co-workers, bro-conuts, fun in-laws, very friendly strangers and of course, coconut lovers …

Happy Halloween!

#Top100Rums of 2017 – #90 Captain Morgan Jack-O’Blast

Posted by Arctic Wolf on September 23, 2017

Captain Morgan Jack-O’Blast Pumpkin Spiced Rum has just begun to appear on store shelves throughout North America. Building upon the success of last year’s release of Captain Morgan Cannon Blast (see my review here), Captain Morgan is adding a new Limited Edition Spiced Rum to the shots category with their brand new Pumpkin Spiced Rum, Captain Morgan Jack-O’Blast Limited Edition Pumpkin Spiced Rum, the first pumpkin spiced rum offering to ever hit shelves

Here is a link to my review for the Rum Howler #90 Rum of 2017:

Review: Captain Morgan Jack-O’Blast Pumpkin Spiced Rum

“… The aroma from the glass is very nice. I let my wife have a nice sniff, not letting her know what was inside. She immediately smiled and said my rum reminded her of her pumpkin spiced chai tea that she loves. I guess you could say that Captain Morgan nailed it …”

Rum Howler 2016 Top 50 Mixing Rums Countdown (#30 – #26)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on November 29, 2016

2016rum_howler_badgeToday is the last of the ‘group’ postings for my Top 50 Mixing Rum Countdown. From this point forward, the mixing rums will be introduced one at a time as I count down from number 25 to number 1. If you are interested in how the Countdown has progressed so far, here is a link to the growing list:

The Rum Howler 2016 Top 50 Mixing Rums Countdown

Today’s revelation includes three spiced rums within the grouping. Spiced rum has been a bit of a revelation for myself this year. Whereas I have long considered spiced rums strictly as soda mixers, great with cola and not much else, this year I encountered Tony Abou’s spiced rum cocktail, the Cable Car which opened up a whole new world of mixing possibilities for me with respect to spiced rum servings.

This revelation, I am sure, is the reason why so many spiced rums have made my list. I recommend that any who have not sampled the delight of the Cable Car do so immediately, and if you find that particular libation to your liking, try a few the cocktails I was inspired to create, The Fog Horn, The Jerrycan, The Pedestrian, or the Trolley Car. Hopefully a new world of possibilities will open for you as well.

Here are the next five spirits in my Rum Howler 2016 Top 50 Mixing Rums Countdown:

Appleton White#30  Appleton White Jamaican Rum

“… As this is a cocktail rum, I decided to mix the triumvirate of quintessential white rum cocktails, the Daiquiri, the Mojito, and the Cuba Libre’. Although all three bar drinks would be welcome in my bar glass; by far, I preferred the Mojito and Daiquiri over the Cuba Libre’. The Jamaican White Rum has a strong affinity for lime and citrus based cocktails …”

SAM_0991#29  Lemon Hart Navy Spiced Rum 

“… I immediately tried a little spiced rum and cola in my glass. I was quite pleased that some of that aggressive spiciness within the rum pushed through the cola giving this simple bar drink a welcome spicy ‘oomph’. I also mixed the spiced rum with fruit juice and ginger ale and found even more enjoyment, and then I went out on a limb and created my own short cocktail (my Merry Widow Cocktail) …”

especial_extra_english_dry_rgb-e1390581460176#28  Brugal Especial Extra Dry Rum 

“… I decided to begin my cocktail explorations with a simple daiquiri and I followed that with a mojito. The mojito in particular tasted very nice (the daiquiri was quite delicious as well), and I really cannot find fault in the rum as a high quality mixer. It appears to be as advertised, a quality white rum meant add a touch of character to the cocktail …”

The Fog Horn

The Fog Horn

#27  Screech Spiced 100 (Proof) Rum 

“… I mixed a nice spiced rum and cola, and found the result very satisfying. To test the spiced rum’s versatility, I mixed next with ginger-ale and was surprised at the tasty result. Finally I mixed a new short cocktail combining the Screech Spiced 100 (Proof) Rum with Southern Comfort, fresh juice and bitters (my Fog Horn recipe). Once again I was well pleased …”

the-cane-mutiny-sam_2842#26  Captain Morgan Jack-O’Blast Pumpkin Spiced Rum

“… The aroma from the glass is very nice. I let my wife have a nice sniff, not letting her know what was inside. She immediately smiled and said my rum reminded her of her pumpkin spiced chai tea that she loves. I guess you could say that Captain Morgan nailed it! Pumpkin, caramel, and vanilla rise into the breezes accented lightly by cinnamon and cloves. The combination is wonderful …”

Stay tuned for more mixing rum revelations as I will be adding to this list each day until Christmas Eve.

Review: Captain Morgan Jack-O’ Blast Limited Edition Spiced Rum

Posted by Arctic Wolf on October 10, 2016

jack-oblast-sam_2843Captain Morgan Jack-O’ Blast has began to appear on store shelves throughout North America. The new spirit from Captain Morgan (apparently produced from Caribbean Rum, fresh pumpkin, cinnamon and autumnal spices) promises to deliver an insanely delicious shot. This is because the new limited edition spiced rum is (based upon the media information provided) designed to be ideal for the shot glass.

Coinciding with the release of this new pumpkin spiced rum, the Captain Morgan media team began to send samples and product information to media outlets (like The Rum Howler Blog) to write about their new spirit. Of course, I had to put it through the paces of my review system to see if it was all that Captain Morgan promised.

Here is a link to my full review:

Please enjoy my review of this new spiced rum from Captain Morgan.

Chimo!
