By now, you may have heard about Captain Morgan‘s White Rum. We finally got our hands on a bottle of this 80 proof rum, and we recommend you raise a glass to sample this spirit for yourself.
Almost anyone can appreciate a splash of smooth Captain Morgan Spiced Rum mixed with ginger ale or your choice cola. That cold cocktail is an established party favorite. Now, the lively liquor brand has an all-new recipe, its first ever white rum with fine cane molasses carefully distilled five times. With a smooth finish and crystal-clear color, you can play bartender at home and make a number of fancy-looking, great-tasting cocktails packing a punch with 80-proof potency.
1.5 oz. Captain Morgan White® Rum
0.5 oz. fresh lime juice
0.5 oz. simple syrup
fresh mint, muddled
fresh limes, cut into small pieces
1 oz. club soda
1 mint sprig
Instructions: Put all ingredients except club soda and mint sprig into a mixing glass. Add ice and shake vigorously. Add club soda, shake once, and pour into a highball glass. Garnish with a mint sprig.
The new white rum is slightly sweet with a fruity finish of lush green apple. Crisp, light, and refreshing, you can stir with club soda and a squeeze of lime juice, or kick back with a clear rum and cola. For those who are feeling fancy, prepare a batch of mojitos or daiquiris to impress your friends with rum that reminds us of a classy Caribbean escape.
Captain Morgan White Rum is available nationally and has a suggested retail price of $15.99 for a 750mL bottle.
