This delicious mix of sugar, limes and Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum topped with lashings of ice is the Captain’s take on Brazil’s famous national cocktail. The original Caipirinha recipe was discovered over a century ago and is a refreshing tasting drink for hot, balmy day.

We’ve put a twist on this classic drink and made our own Caipirinha recipe with a dash of good ol’ Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum in place of the traditional cachaça. Easy to make for your whole crew, a tropical Caipirinha cocktail is a delicious party drink.

To make a Caipirinha worthy of the Captain’s kudos, give the limes a squeeze first to make sure you get all the juicy, good stuff out. Use crushed ice instead of cubes, too, for an authentic drink.
