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.
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:
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.
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
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.
