The release of Starbucks' pumpkin spice latte can only mean one thing: Fall is fast approaching.

A great cocktail for the fall uses a different kind of spice -- spiced rum. If you're looking for a new kind of spiced rum, look no further than Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum. This Caribbean rum, which was inspired by American tattoo legend Norman "Sailor Jerry" Collins, is blended with 100 percent natural spices and flavors. The spirit embodies the independent and unapologetic attitude of the rum's namesake, who was noted for saying, "My work speaks for itself." 

The following Heavy Punch Rum recipe is bold and smooth. I think it is perfect for your guests at the next house party.

Heavy Spiced Rum

  • 1½ parts Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum
  • 1 part fresh pineapple juice
  • ½ part port
  • ½ part sugar syrup
  • ½ part fresh lime juice
  • 4 dashes of aromatic bitters
