And the legendary drink has a legendary mix – with a pour of cola to accentuate the vanilla flavours produced in the maturation process of Captain Morgan Original Rum. In one delicious serve you have a ‘Captain and Cola'.
That's because after being triple distilled, Captain Morgan is matured in charred American oak barrels that help give the rum its appealing dark qualities and layers of flavour. The distillery's master blenders keep an eye on the barrels, tasting each batch as it ages to ensure a harmonious blend of caramel and clove notes.
Captain Morgan Original Rum has a deep, rich taste, reminiscent of the navy rum rations that sailors enjoyed from the mid-1600s. A blend of pot still and continuous still rums from the islands of Jamaica, Guyana and Barbados, Captain Morgan Original Rum is aged in oak and has a dark, full-bodied colour and distinctive rich taste that you'll quickly recognise and enjoy.
Captain Morgan Original Rum pairs well with a range of mixers, particularly lemonade, apple juice, cranberry juice, pineapple juice or orange juice. But you can add cola for a full flavoured version of rum and cola. Place a generous wedge of lime in the glass for the Cuba Libre. Mixing with lime juice makes the Daisy. Or blend with ginger ale for a spicy taste of the Caribbean. You can also create the classic Planters Punch cocktail, one that was invented in the late 19th century to specifically make use of Jamaican-style dark rum. Combine Captain Morgan Original Rum with grenadine syrup, orange juice and club soda for a fabulous party drink that's great to share, and one that your guests will love.
