With the fall officially starting this Friday, make sure you get in the spirit of the season with a seasonal spirit.

Ah, fall. The season of cooler weather, changing leaves, and apple picking. It’s the time of year when people find themselves yearning for coziness, and the idea of sitting around a bonfire snuggled in blankets seems more attractive than spending the day sunning on a tropical beach. Swimsuits are exchanged for sweaters, the pumpkin spice takeover kicks into full swing, and, as the days grow longer, sometimes all you really want to do is kick back with a cocktail in hand, enjoying the changing of the seasons. There’s a wide variety of autumnal spirits to choose from: some gravitate towards cognac, while others find themselves preferring bourbon, cider, or stouts. However, one spirit stands a cut above the rest in representing the ultimate fall aesthetic: Black Magic Black Spiced Rum.

“Black Magic is flavorful and aromatic, a subtle mixture of spices with notes of cinnamon, caramel, vanilla, and allspice,” says Matthew Berman of Black Magic. “Our complex flavor profile goes perfectly with seasonal ingredients such as cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper, pumpkin, cider, and cranberry.”

Like many rums, Black Magic carries hints of warm baking spices and a subtle sweetness, qualities that inherently associate it with autumn. However, what sets Black Magic apart lies in its versatility. Made with an expert blend of light and dark rums, the rum can adapt itself to fit almost any type of cocktail recipe, making it invaluable in the temperamental fall climate.

According to Berman, “You can create cocktails that capture that feeling, and moments that come with an autumn chill, an unseasonably warm October day, a costumed Halloween party, or a Thanksgiving family reunion. Black Magic can be used as a whiskey replacement for classic cocktails like the ‘Old Fashioned’, or even as a refreshing tequila replacement like in the ‘Magic Margarita’. No matter the occasion, there’s a unique and unforgettable Black Magic cocktail to both satisfy and impress.”

If you could only have one spirit to carry you through autumn, Black Magic Black Spiced Rum would be the ideal choice. The combination of its flavor profile and its versatility give it a near-limitless potential for cocktail creation.
