Fulton’s Harvest Pumpkin Pie Liqueur

Vintage 20 will host a FREE tasting event featuring Fulton’s Harvest Pumpkin Pie Liqueur on Friday 10/26/18, 4-7 PM.

Having a Halloween Party this weekend?

I mean, I’m not. But I still really enjoy Halloween. Costumes, Jack-o-lanterns, the “candy-tax” that all parents take and never name (I skim at least 2 Reese’s PB Cups right off the top), and of course, FALL THEMED BEVERAGES!!!!

::tosses leaves into the air with joy::

I’m not just talking about PSL’s (that’s Pumpkin Spice Lattes, for the uninitiated). In my world, we have hard cider, apple brandy and pumpkin liqueur. Oh, my! So for this blustery week before Halloween, we’ll be cracking open some Fulton’s Harvest Pumpkin Pie Liqueur to get in the spirit! This stuff is sooooo so so good, even just poured over some ice in a rocks glass. However, it’s also an ingredient in one of my favorite cocktails:

The Pumpkin Pie Martini!

Then in a blender:

  1. a healthy scoop of vanilla ice cream
  2. 1 1/2 oz of Smirnoff Vanilla vodka
  3. 3 oz Fulton’s Harvest Pumpkin Pie Liqueur

Blend away! Pour into your martini glass, then top with whipped cream. Add a cinnamon stick or sprinkle some additional pumpkin pie spice for garnish. And watch yourself, because these WILL creep up on you!

This Friday

10/26, we will have Fulton’s Harvest Pumpkin Pie Liqueur open for you to try from 4:00pm- 7:00pm. And probably after then, too. You are DEFINITELY going to want to take this one home with you, even if it’s just for a Halloween party of one.

Cheers!

Something Wicked This Way Comes: Bogle Phantom Red

Vintage 20 Wine and Spirits will host a FREE tasting, featuring Bogle Phantom Red on Friday 10/19/18 from 4PM to 7PM.

Autumn is a great time of year to be a liquor store owner.

For one thing: you gear up to actually make money! No more crying into your coffee because you can’t feed the kids wine for dinner– the HOLIDAYS are coming! (I’m mostly kidding about this. Mostly.)

Reason Two: Seasonal releases. The fall sees a dramatic increase in limited release items that are usually very good and highly sought after. Interesting flavors abound, and you get a surge of wine blends aged in different kinds of casks.

bogle-phantomThere are other reasons, but for now let’s focus on reason number two, because it is the entire point my post. One of my all-time favorite seasonal release wines, Bogle Phantom Red, is in stock!! It’s deep, dark, and rich, with loads of spice and fruit flavors. A PERFECT wine to sip on those chilly fall evenings we’re finally getting.

And this year, they’ve jumped on the bandwagon with an “augmented reality” label. If you’re thinking to yourself, what in the Fred Flintstone is THAT? well, you’re probably not alone.

Augmented reality, commonly referred to as “AR”, uses the existing environment to overlay digital information on an image of something being viewed through a device, such as a smartphone or an iPad.

So, Bogle has an app that you can download which will overlay movement and images over an existing item viewed through your phone’s camera, like so:

Sorry I am evidently terrible at converting videos. And does anyone else get a “Stranger Things” vibe from that vine?? Half spooky, half silly, completely entertaining and mildly creepy, this app is sure to be a crowd-pleaser at your Halloween shindig. And hey, so’s the wine!

 

Wanna try before you buy?

That’s why I post! Because we love you, we will have Bogle Phantom open this Friday, October 19th from 4PM- 7PM. After 7 I cannot promise that I won’t finish the rest. We’ll also be offering 10% off this product during our tasting event. Hope to see you there. Cheers, friends!
