HAMPTON ROADS, Va. - Move over Pumpkin Spice Latte! Chef Patrick Evans-Hylton shows us how to make his own version called the Rum-Kin Spice Latte and talks about exciting events happening in Hampton Roads.
RUM-KIN SPICE LATTE
Our Rum-Kin Spice Latte captures the full, fabulous flavors of fall.
The cocktail is crafted with my Four Farthing Spiced Rum, as well Cureo Coffee Liqueur, both offered by Chesapeake Bay Distillery. Your favorite pumpkin spice-flavored creamer rounds it out. Sample it at Chesapeake Bay Distillery’s tasting room through November or make it yourself; here’s how:
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add 3 ounces Four Farthing Spiced Rum from Chesapeake Bay Distillery, 1-1/2 ounces Cureo Coffee Liqueur from Chesapeake Bay Distillery, and 1-1/2 ounces Pumpkin Spice flavored creamer (or creamer with pumpkin spice added to your taste). Shake well and serve. Makes 1 cocktail.
