Believe it or not, Captain Morgan has been around for roughly 350 years! So, they’re celebrating Captain Morgan’s “375-ish” birthday on May 15th – it’s hard to be really precise when you’re dealing with hundreds of years.
In honor of the Captain, Diageo sent us some samples, and we’ve been getting reacquainted Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum, while tasting Captain Morgan Lime Bite and Captain Morgan Black Cask 100 Proof Spiced Rum for the first time. Great stuff!
For this week’s Drink of the Week, we decided to go with an old favorite made with some Captain Morgan.
Captain and Cola
1.5 oz. Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum (25 oz. per bottle)
3 oz. cola
1 lime wedge
Drink Recipe Preparation:
o Add Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum and cola in ice-filled highball glass.
o Garnish with lime wedge.
It’s simple and easy, but it’s a classic and it’s refreshing as hell.
