Have you ever experienced a fabulous cocktail, only to go home and try to replicate it and fail miserably? We recently sipped the Spiced Rum Flip and Pumpkin Pie Martini at the Tulalip Resort Casino and begged them for the recipe so we can share it with our readers. The holidays are so much warmer and more fun with a well-executed, super delicious seasonal cocktail in hand. Shake and serve these amazing cocktails and be the hostess with the mostess this season. (Thanks Tulalip!)
Spiced Rum Flip
The Spiced Rum Flip features the deliciously rich Boulevard Brewing Company’s Whiskey Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout, Pyrat XO 10-Year Rum, St. Elizabeth Jamaican Allspice Dram (the allspice berry has for generations been prized for its exceptional flavors of clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg and a pepper note that dazzles the palate), Demerara syrup, cardamom bitters and a whole egg. Shaken and served neat.
