The transition into fall brings about cooler temperatures, vibrant colors of changing leaves, and football season. It also brings about a change in the way you host parties and other social events. These social gatherings tend to be centered on indoor activities due to the weather. The selection of foods and drinks you serve may also change, from the cool, refreshing choices of summer to more comforting, warmer autumn options. There are even cocktail choices that tend to be favorites among guests at a fall get together. One of these is the Canadian Spiced Rum Cocktail.
The inspiration for this drink is the extraordinary autumn season in Toronto, Canada and the feeling that it instills in individuals living or simply visiting there. The ingredients all lend themselves to a rich, soothing cocktail experience highlighted with comforting fall flavors such as apple cider, cinnamon and vanilla. Served on ice, this drink is sure to be a hit among your party guests.
For this drink, you will need 1/8 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1/4 ounce of freshly squeezed lime juice (about a half of a lime), 1/2 ounce of maple syrup and 2 ounces of a spiced rum of your choice. You will also need a cinnamon stick or two for garnish. These ingredients will create one perfect Canadian cocktail.
All ingredients besides the cinnamon sticks should be placed in your drink shaker with approximately 1/2 cup of ice. Vigorously shake the drink, giving the ground cinnamon ample time to dissolve. Pour the drink immediately on ice. For a truly classy look, use an old fashioned or autumn themed glass. The rich amber color of the cocktail can be greatly appreciated in a clear glass or mug. Drop in a cinnamon stick for garnish and a bit of extra flavor.
It is important to serve the right types of foods alongside this cocktail for the perfect sensation for one’s palette. Finger foods work best for cocktail parties and warm hors d’oeuvres compliment this drink nicely. Choices such as stuffed mushrooms, baby baked potatoes or even roasted veggies are great options. Sliced meats, cheeses and a variety of breads will also partner well with this cocktail.
