Move over candy corn!

Halloween parties have finally concluded, which means no more costumes, no more pumpkin carving, and hopefully, for my sake, no more candy! It’s not that I don’t enjoy Halloween as much as the next person; I just LOVE Thanksgiving much more. No pressure to find a costume or buy gifts, just one holiday dedicated to being with friends and family for eating (and drinking).

Here are some delicious cocktails for the fall season and Thanksgiving, because it’s never too soon to start planning your Thanksgiving menu!

PERNOD RICARD UNVEILS NEW “MAMA WALKER’S™” LINE OF BREAKFAST-FLAVORED LIQUEURS

New Brand Inspired by Mama and her Homemade Goodies

 

New York, NY (March 20, 2013) – Pernod Ricard, the premium spirits and wine company, is expanding its portfolio this spring with the debut of Mama Walker’s, a proprietary new line of three delicious and breakfast inspired liqueurs. Available in Maple Bacon, Blueberry Pancake and Glazed Donut flavors, Mama Walker’s is designed to inspire the nostalgia of homemade breakfasts.

“Mama Walker’s delights with home-style, made-from scratch goodness in flavors consumers want,” said Juli Falkoff, Brand Director for Mama Walker’s, Pernod Ricard USA. “Breakfast isn’t just for breakfast anymore. Consumers are more and more adventurous, seeking flavors across a variety of categories,” Falkoff added. “Comfort food, sweet & savory flavor combinations and retro-inspired flavors are among three of the hottest trends today. Mama Walker’s taps into all three of these current trends with retro-inspired 70 proof liqueurs that are great anytime – at brunch, happy hour, or an evening out – straight up or in cocktails.”

Mama Walker’s line includes:

  • Mama Walker’s™ Maple Bacon – somewhat woodsy with a faintly burnt smokiness on the nose followed by a textured body that’s slightly crispy and smoky. The finish pairs savory flavor with understated maple sweetness.
  • Mama Walker’s™ Blueberry Pancakes – fresh on the nose with an instant and inviting aroma of blueberry. The subtle sweetness on the palate is followed by lingering hints of maple syrup and butter pancake that mellow towards the end.
  • Mama Walker’s™ Glazed Donut – offers the warm aroma of fresh-from-the-oven glazed donuts. For the nose, a nice bit of vanilla. For the palate, a sweet bread sensation and a finish that leaves a lingering trace of subtle sweetness.

 

The Mama Walker’s package incorporates a retro look that perfectly complements its taste profile, including an image of an oven mitt holding a martini glass displayed on the neck of the bottles. POS materials, also designed in the retro theme will be available to support the launch of Mama Walker’s Liqueurs at retail and on-premise. In addition, sampling events (where legal) will help spread the word and engage consumers with this distinct new line of cordials – along with digital outreach through Facebook and a dedicated website.

Mama Walker’s Liqueurs (35% ABV) will hit retail in March of 2013, and will be available in 1L, 750ml and 50ml bottle sizes. The suggested retail price is $12.99/750ml.
