Halloween is just a couple days away, and while it seems as though many Halloween celebrations took place over this past weekend, the actual holiday is not over yet! Whether you’re staying in and watching scary movies, having a party, or not celebrating at all, it is always the right time for a cocktail.

Jack-o-lantini

  • 1 part Absolut® Vanilia
  • 1 part Hiram Walker® Pumpkin Spice Liqueur

Shake and strain into a martini glass. Sprinkle with pinch of cinnamon.

Happy Halloweening!

Friday Feature Cocktail: The Pumpkin Eater

It’s my favorite day of the week again folks! It’s Friday! Dust off your cocktail shakers and get your glasses ready for another round of Friday’s Feature Cocktail!

The leaves outside have taken over driveways, sidewalks and lawns and fall is in full swing. Which in my mind means that pumpkin season is in full swing as well. This weekend I will be getting my pumpkin fix through a nice Pumpkin Eater cocktail!

Not the prettiest cocktail, but the taste of Hiram Walker Pumpkin Spice makes up for it!

Friday Feature Cocktail: 1/2 Marathon Rum Runner

Happy Friday everyone! Tomorrow is a big day for me, as I will be running my first (and most likely my only) ½ marathon! For those who don’t know, a ½ marathon consists of 13.1 miles…straight…and I will admit to you all that I am very nervous. So I’ve decided to settle my nerves tonight and toast to my big day tomorrow with a cocktail! To keep the theme of marathons and running, I’ve decided this Friday’s Feature cocktail will be a Rum Runner!

  • 2 parts Malibu® Tropical Banana
  • 1 part Hiram Walker® Blackberry Flavored Brandy
  • 2 parts Orange Juice
  • 2 parts Pineapple Juice
  • 2 parts Cranberry Juice

Serve over ice in a tall glass, garnish with fruit.

Cheers and wish me luck everyone!

Friday Feature Cocktail(s) for National Vodka Day!

Happy Friday and Happy National Vodka Day! In honor of such a lovely holiday, I want to feature two vodka cocktails (try to contain your excitement here) one classic and one new cocktail!

The first cocktail is the classic, but still delicious, Cosmopoliton:

•1½ parts ABSOLUT® Vodka
•1 part Hiram Walker® Triple Sec
•½ part Fresh Lime Juice
•½ part Cranberry Juice
Shake & strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a lime or lemon wedge.

This second cocktail is definitely not your classic cocktail, this mixes savory and smokey bacon flavor with spicy jalapeno flavor, all mixed up in one sizzling cocktail- The Mama Sizzle!

• 1 part Mama Walker’s Maple Bacon Liqueur
• 1 part Absolut Vodka
• 1 part fresh lime juice
• dash of Angostura Bitters
• 4 jalapeno slices
Add all ingredients to shaker with ice, shake. Double strain into chilled cocktail glass

Enjoy and happy celebrating!
