The holiday season has sneaked up on us once again and with it all those typical holiday cravings. This year, have fun with the classic holiday flavors. To satiate your need for the perfect winter drink, order this month’s Grand Cordon cocktail–the Kabocha Spiced Rum, created by Joseph Kongtong of Nobu Los Angeles.

This twist on the classic spiced rum lets the kabocha, AKA the Japanese Pumpkin, be the star of the show. A flavorful kabocha puree mixes well with apple, orange, and ginger, making the familiar all the more interesting. Egg whites add decadence and the rum, of course, will keep you warm and satisfied.

Starting December 1st you can order the Kabocha Spiced Rum at your favorite Nobu Restaurant. The Kabocha Spiced Rum is the perfect addition to the Nobu family of cocktails for the wintry months of December and January.
