Celebrate National Rum Day with Captain Morgan

Generally, I prefer vodka over rum and it wasn't until I went to the Captain Morgan event at Ciro's Speakeasy that my mind was changed. At this event, we were treated to five different cocktails, all made with Captain Morgan's new Black Spiced Rum and I became a believer!

Now, I'm pretty excited to celebrate National Rum Day next Thursday, August 16th. Thanks to Captain Morgan, I now have three recipes to share.

First, try The Satisfaction.

Ingredients:

1.5 oz. Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum

3 dashes bitters

5 oz. Coca-Cola

Lime wedge for garnish.

The Satisfaction is an easy-to-make cocktail, named for the real-life Captain Henry Morgan's flagship, believed to have been found off the coast of Panama last summer. 


Captain Morgan Black & Honey:

Ingredients:

1.25 oz. Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum

.75 oz. fresh lemon juice

.5 oz. honey

Lemon wedge for garnish.

Featuring Captain Morgan's newest product, Black Spiced Rum, this sweet cocktail is the perfect drink to round out the summer.


If you are celebrating National Rum Day with a large group, the Captain Morgan Black Privateer Punch is a great option, with a refreshing kick.


Ingredients:

1 750 ml bottle Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum

3 750 ml bottles of red wine

1 750 ml bottle of cherry juice

2 oranges, sliced

2 lemons, sliced

2 limes, sliced

1/2 lb. cherries, pitted

1 L Cola

Directions:

Chill all ingredients. In a large punch bowl, crush the fresh fruit to extract the juices. Combine liquids and add a large block of ice. Serve the punch in wine glasses with pieces of fruit.

Hello, where can I get my hands on "bitters"? You know any specific brands or something that I can search for in my local liqueur store?
