Pumpkin Spice Dark and Stormy | www.kitchenconfidante.com | An autumn twist to a classic.

I was driving through town just before Halloween when I passed by one of my favorite little shopping spots in my quiet little town. The trees were brilliant with fall foliage and it was one of those gorgeous fall afternoons, the light golden, and the air crisp. But then I saw something that made my heart sink.

Christmas decorations. Shiny gold ornaments, ribbons draping the signs…it was a sight that made me groan, “No way!”

Can we at least get through Thanksgiving first?

Pumpkin Spice Dark and Stormy | www.kitchenconfidante.com | Ginger beer mixes with Kahlúa for a twist on a Dark and Stormy.

But the next morning, the clouds arrived and brought a taste of the shivers, along with the steady pour of rain. All of a sudden, it felt wintery and delicious. And I secretly began to crave all things holiday.

Now I just want to sit by the fire while the mood turns to gloom outside and sip on something mysterious. Or at least sounds mysterious.

This Pumpkin Spice Dark and Stormy is my answer to the blustery days ahead, with a bit of an autumn twist. A traditional Dark and Stormy pairs rum with ginger beer, but you must try it with Kahlúa Pumpkin Spice! It adds just the right bit of mystery to the glass.

    Have not seen this Kahlua before, and it sounds amazing with the pumpkin spice as well as ginger beer.  My type of fall cocktail!

    My dad used to let my sister and I sip on his kahlua and cream for special occasions when we were kids.  I love it to this day.

    You think like me—-Let’s enjoy Thanksgiving before Xmas. Plus drinking something mysterious, an illusion of that—giving life a little twist of pleasure—-YES. Let’s do those kinds of actions everyday in multiple ways. This is a good example. I love Kahlua, so of course I think this is a champion idea. Smiles—-
