Here we go again with Jim Beam Red Stag black cherry whiskey.  Inadvertently,  I’ve been using this particular whiskey in a lot of my drinks.  I’m not sure if its even available anywhere or if it was a limited time thing, but if you can get your hands on some I highly recommend it.  It makes a delightful mixed drink whiskey, allowing some of the musky whiskey flavors to filter through while marrying well with whatever you decide to mix it with.  Which I suppose is why I use it so often.  That all being said, here is one more amazing autumn cocktail for you combining falls best, apple cider, cranberry juice and Jim Beam Red Stag.  Enjoy.

Caramel Apple Kiss

Crisp and Sweet just like a caramel apple

It’s been a long time coming, but I finally managed to get my hands on some caramel vodka.  Now I can finally make delicious caramel drinks without having to fake my way through by using butterscotch schnapps.   Oddly similar, although lacking in alcohol content, butterscotch schnapps makes for a more sugary cocktail than you would get with caramel vodka.  Caramel Apple Kiss boasts only two simple ingredients – and I’ll even show you how to recreate it if you aren’t lucky enough to have a bottle of caramel vodka on hand.

Caramel Apple Kiss

1oz Smirnoff Caramel Kiss Vodka

3oz Apple Cider

And it’s that simple.  Pour these two ingredients in a glass with ice and garnish with a stick of cinnamon.

Variation:  If you don’t have caramel vodka, combine a half oz of butterscotch schnapps w...

Tropical Pumpkin Punch



Super Secret:  There is no pumpkin

Super Secret: There is no pumpkin

I know I know we’ve been out of the summer season for what, two weeks now? And I’m already handing out tropical drink recipes…?  Yea I am and I’m not really ashamed.  We could use a little tropical in our Halloween Party, right?  The disclosure I have to make sure everyone knows, and I hope I’m not breaking any hearts by doing this, but there is no pumpkin in this drink.  It’s just sort of made to look like a pumpkin.  To be fair, there are endless other ways to get pumpkin everything in the Autumn – almost too much.  So for the anti pumpkin fanatics not to worry – this cocktail is entirely pumpkin free.

Tropical Pumpkin Punch

1oz Cruzan Spiced Rum

1oz  Dekuyper Creme de Banana

Carmel Apple Pie



Deliciously delectable bursting with apple flavor - just like a slice of that delicious pie   My favorite season is Autumn – and it has arrived.  Time for apples and pumpkins and harvests of every kind.  This makes for some inspiring cocktail creations.  Seeing as how pumpkin has been overplayed – it’s apples turn to take the plate.  This cocktail is a sweet delectable, almost like a dessert.  It tastes just like a slice of that harvest apple pie.
