Roe & Co Offers A Great Fall Cocktail

The weather is getting colder. Now is the time for some fun cocktails. The Roe & Co Irish Coffee is a delicious, easy-to-make cocktails that everyone can enjoy.

In case you’re unfamiliar with the brand, Roe & Co is a new contemporary blend that is inspired by the once world-famous George Roe & Co Distillery in Dublin. Roe & Co is made from the finest hand-selected stocks of Irish malt and grain whiskies, aged in bourbon casks. Using her 30 years of experience, our Master Blender Caroline Martin has created a versatile, premium whiskey. Roe & Co is a luxuriously smooth blend with a perfect harmony between the intense fruitiness of the malt and the mellow creaminess of the grain whiskies.

  • 60ml freshly brewed americano coffee
  • 10ml porter syrup/sugar syrup
  • 15ml fresh lightly whipped cream
  • grated nutmeg & 3 coffee beans

Heat the Irish coffee glass with boiling water. Once heated empty the water out and add 60ml of freshly brewed hot coffee and in the syrup. Stir lightly. Pour in 40ml of Roe & Co and layer lightly whipped fresh cream on top. Garnish with 3 coffee beans and a light dusting of grated nutmeg.

Captain Morgan Offers An Apple Spied Rum

There’s something new dropping this fall and it’s ripe for the taking. Captain Morgan is hitting the shelves with Captain Morgan Sliced Apple Spiced Rum – something brand new that’s sure to shake up the rum category as a spirit that is so delicious it can easily be enjoyed neat or on the rocks.

There’s more fun to be had with this twist on a classic – we took the flavor of our signature Original Spiced Rum, added a subtle hint of ginger and fused it all together with the deliciously juicy and crisp taste of fresh cut apples. Captain Morgan Sliced Apple is all about making sure you and your friends can enjoy and celebrate the good times with a flavor everyone loves, whether you’re near or far.

Five artists worked with Captain Morgan to design murals in the communities they call home – New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, Austin and Atlanta – that pay tribute to some of the country’s most vibrant and iconic cities and neighborhoods. In their own unique, signature styles, each artist’s mural showcases some of the diverse flavors, people, art and sounds that make up the irresistible spirits of the communities that Captain Morgan Sliced Apple is out to celebrate.

Nothing screams autumn like sliced apples. They’re crisp, refreshing, sweet yet tart, exploding with flavor and perfectly suited for the fall (or any) season. With all that flavor packed into Captain Morgan Sliced Apple, there’s something for everyone 21 and over to sink their teeth into – serve it neat, on the rocks or as a chilled shot. Captain Morgan Sliced Apple is so delicious that we recommend giving it a try on its own, but if you’re looking to spice things up, it can be used to add variety to some of your favorite signature cocktails like the Captain Morgan Apple Crisp.

Apple Crisp

1 oz Captain Morgan Sliced Apple
.5 oz lemon juice
Cubed ice (in shaker)
Lemon wedge for garnish

Directions:

  1. Pour Captain Morgan Sliced Apple and lemon juice into a shaker over ice.
