Fall Festive Jack-O-Tini with Pumpkin Spiced Rum

 

It is so time for a Fall Cocktail
It is so time for a Fall Cocktail

I have been fortunate to have some of my close friends visit, from far away. I have a house full (did I say full) of very genuine, smart, talented, funny and loving friends. This is my “away” team from Cali, Texas and Florida. My “home team” is fabulous as well. A great network of friends whether they’re the “away team or home team” is a necessity for continued sanity.

 

If you don’t have a network of fabulous confidants, make it a mission to do so, and soon. Close friends are great. And necessary to have in a time of need. Mix in a friend or two to any mundane task and it will become an improved outing. Great friends are priceless and a joy. I love all of my friends and feel very fortunate to have met each one of them.

Friends are a different kind of family. I am fortunate to have a loving family as well. Love is unlimited and should be shared. As with all families, there are times of challenges. It is important to work your way through the challenges, to get back to love. At times, it is difficult, love conquers all, eventually.

With the fall leaves dropping, the fire pit loaded with wood and temperature nippy enough for a fire, it’s time for a Martini. In my preparation for house guests, I perused the happy hour offerings. I discovered Captain Morgans Jack-O-Blast. It is a seasonal pumpkin spiced Rum.
