The Kraken Black Spiced Rum

Ah, the smell of sweet baking spice that wafts out of a glass of spiced rum. It’s true that rum is a liquor that can be enjoyed year round, but a spiced rum feels like a warm sweater on a cool fall night. One of our favorites is the Caribbean rum called Kraken. The easily identifiable bottle is reminiscent of an old moonshine jug with a liquid that fits the description of dark and stormy. The vanilla, toffee and spice that emerge with every sip makes it perfect to enjoy on its own or in a cocktail. This tasty cocktail pairs particularly well with Halloween chocolate treats.

The Buttery Kraken by Kraken Rum

Ingredients:

1 part Kraken Original
1 part butterscotch schnapps
Splash of cola
