'Tis the season for everything to start become mint chocolate-, cinnamon-, hot cocoa-, and gingerbread-flavored...and that apparently includes alcohol. People have started spotting Gingerbread Spiced Captain Morgan ahead of the holidays and you're going to want to use it to spike, like, every hot drink.
Instagrammer @FoodieWithTheBeasts first spotted this liquor in stores this year, but it's unclear if it's been offered before. It's described as rum "distilled with the sweet and warming taste of fresh gingerbread," so it sounds like it would go perfectly with coffee, hot chocolate, and eggnog. Or you could simply serve it on the rocks while you're busy making real gingerbread men.
YouTubers MyCountryMarket had the pleasure of trying it already and they described the flavor to be similar to a whiskey or a cinnamon candy and found it to be super festive.
Captain Morgan Gingerbread Spiced Rum
FoodieWithTheBeasts found this already in stock at Jayco Liquors, but a quick skim online found it's available already at tons of different places, so keep your eyes peeled if you're already in a gingerbread mood. Around me, it retails for about $21.99, but this will obviously vary based on where you're located. We reached out to Captain Morgan to see if we could get any other details and will be sure to update this post once we hear back.
In the meantime, if you're still looking for a seasonal drink, may I suggest something like a spooky red wine from Aldi or an apple whiskey from Jack Daniels? No matter the season, there is a festive way to get lit. Thank goodness.
