So before Gingerbread Stout season gets into full swing, we are finishing up pumpkin season with our take on the classic cocktail, Dark and Stormy. Thanks to Elysian Brewing Company we were able to find the perfect pumpkin beer with the right amount of spice to pair with the delicious Mount Gay Barbados Rum. Each barrel is brewed with over seven pounds of pumpkin, roasted and raw pumpkin seeds, and spiced with nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, ginger and allspice.
If that doesn't scream pumpkin pie in a bottle I don't know what does! See, dessert does come in liquid form. Happy Fall and almost Thanksgiving!
4 ounces rum (We use Mount Gay Barbados Rum)
1 bottle pumpkin beer (We use Elysian Brewing Company's Night Owl Pumpkin Ale)
8 dashes Angostura Bitters
Filled two tall glasses with ice. In each glass pour 2 ounces of rum, 4 dashes of bitters and top with the pumpkin beer. Stir and enjoy! Makes 2 cocktails.
