Pirate Juice – Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum

20 Jun

I was recently invited to ‘step into the black’ with Captain Morgan Black spiced rum – the newest member of the Morgan family – and judging by the 94.6 proof, it’s pretty clear that this new rum is the crazy cousin that likes to party balls. This new rum is dark, spiced and very flavorful – and it isn’t just for rum drinkers.

At the tasting, we were schooled in the art of the cocktail by world-renowned mixologist Toby Maloney. He mixed up all different kinds of cocktails traditionally made with whiskey – and they all tasted like magic in my mouth. The dark, full flavor and spiciness of the new Captain Morgan Black brought these old drinks to a whole new level – and pretty much blew my mind. My favorite drink was the Black and Honey, which is strong enough to get you to swashbuckler status and tasty enough to make you want to chug it savor the deliciousness

  • 1 1/4 oz Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum
  • 3/4 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz honey
  • 1 lemon wedge

Combine liquid ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, shake until cold. Serve in a rocks glass and garnish with the lemon wedge – Bottoms up!

I realize that when I say words like ‘flavorful’ and ‘spicy’ you dudes out there are rolling your eyes, thinking I mean fruity and girly – but this is straight pirate juice and will put some serious hair on your chest. Even Clayton, the resident whiskey-chugging bro, loved the new Captain Morgan pirate juice.

Basically, Captain Morgan Black is your new favorite drink – It’s pretty cheap ($21.99 for 750ml) and strong enough for the Three Sheets team, so it’s a win-win. Whether you’re a whiskey drinker like Clayton or a rum guzzling pirate like me, you need to buy it. And drink it. Lots of it.
