Sure, a cup of hot chocolate could keep you warm this holiday season. But admit it, nothing beats the comforting warmth that a bottle of fine rum brings. Besides, what’s the point of celebrating the most wonderful time of the year without any booze? So, we’re here to announce that Captain Morgan’s Gingerbread Spiced Rum has finally hit the shelves. Booze lovers, rejoice!
Instagrammer @foodiewiththebeasts first spotted the new seasonal flavor on the shelves of a Jayco Liquors store a couple of weeks ago. However, it was only just recently that the brand made the official announcement on its Instagram and Twitter pages. Based on the reactions it garnered, it’s safe to assume that this limited-edition drink will be a hit.
