The Black Almond for #CaptainsTable

Black Almond Cocktail via
It’s full on fast paced action packed holiday season. Deny it if you will, but it’s December and time is flying by this year in a blink and I haven’t been able to catch up. Don’t let the holiday season sneak up on you and your cocktail parties without a fun new drink to serve your (sometimes unexpected) guests.

This cocktail was created by my father during and evening of recipe development with Captain Morgan run for Captain’s Table, a fun program Captain Morgan Rum is hosting through the season. For every recipe tweeted (retweeted and so on and so forth) with the hashtag #captainstable, the good ol’ Captain himself is donating a dollar to help end hunger. Fun recipes, good cause. Yeah, I’m in. Plus, this drink is kind of a hit.
