If you’ve ever seen a Captain Morgan commercial, you’re familiar with the brand’s signature slogan: “To Life, Love and Loot”. This winter, Captain Morgan’s plundering pirates are replacing the looting with an extra serving of love.
Acheson is inviting responsible drinkers aged 21 and older to share recipes and swap tips to serve at the Captain’s Table. Just for exchanging ideas about your favorite rum inventions, you can help support WhyHunger, a charity that supplies nutritious, affordable food to those who need it most.
So, how can you help? Through early February, Captain Morgan will donate $1 to WhyHunger every time you use the hashtag #CaptainsTable on Twitter, Instagram, or Pinterest. This makes one little hashtag a huge symbol for hope this holiday season. Just by staying social on your favorite social media channels, you’ll have the opportunity to make a difference.
To get the ball rolling, we’re going to share a Captain Morgan holiday cocktail recipe that is sure to be a big hit with your guest! This tart and festive drink is perfect for a holiday party, whether you’re exchanging gifts or ringing in the New Year. Are you ready to tumble?
