Boyd & Blair’s line of ready-to-drink cocktails gets a fall addition. Pumpkin Spice Mule is available now through the holiday season. The PSM starts with Boyd & Blair’s potato vodka and adds pumpkin chai tea, ginger and lime. Compared to the crisp and tart taste of a cider, the Pumpkin Spice Mule aims to be a balance of sweetness and spice.
The fall and holiday mule joins Boyd & Blair’s five other vodka based and one rum centric (daquiri) bottled cocktails. A great idea for entertaining without heavy lifting or for Zoom family gatherings. All of the western Pennsylvania based distillery’s RTD cocktails are available in one liter and flask sizes with the exception of the Pumpkin Spice Mule, which is available exclusively in liter bottles for $24.99 each. Or combine the fall mule with another bottled cocktail for $45.
Order the Pumpkin Spice Mule from Boyd & Blair’s online store or pick up a bottle at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Libations or Soergel Orchards in Wexford, PA.
