Celebrate National Apple Month with Crown Royal

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Okay, okay… I’m a little late to posting for #NationalAppleMonth. I started a new job, and the transition has me SLACKING with the articles. I did, however, take some time this month to celebrate with Crown Royal and their new spokesguy: JB Smoove.

 

 

The comedian and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star was a hysterical and gracious host as he introduced Crown Royal’s newest flavors: Apple and Vanilla. Precedented by some awesome standup from comedian Chris DiStefano, JB Smoove took to the stage with his own brand of funny and was crowned #TheKingOfFlavor.

 

 

Unfamiliar with the taste of Crown Royal (I usually stick to clear spirits) I was surprised and delighted by the cocktails.  Check out the recipes below.
