It’s a great taste and a great way to impress your guests at any event. Let’s start off with introducing Samuel Adams Fat Jack Double Pumpkin beer. It’s smooth, rich and full of spices and pumpkin. This pumpkin beer will really have your guests wanting more as they enjoy a malty sweet taste with just a hint of pumpkin; it will be totally pleasant to your taste buds.
Our next featured drink is a cider and we all know apple cider has been the cat’s meow this year; however, I doubt you have tried Woodchuck’s Private Reserve Ginger Cider and if you have I know the flavor combination of apple and ginger were magical. This one definitely has a one of the kind flavor that will be the talk of your event.
If you’re looking for something much more exciting to spice up your event try a Spiced Margarita or a big bowl of Harvest Sangria. A spiced margarita is infused with apple cider, lemon juice, Grand Mariner and a touch of cinnamon. Oh yeah and don’t forget the tequila! Harvest sangria can be made with any dry white wine, spiced rum, ginger and fruits. This party favorite will be gone before you know it. These drinks will have you and your guest singing with joy. Not only are they absolutely exquisite in flavor, they are both great show pieces.
