Captain & Cola

Not just your typical rum and Coke recipe, the Captain’s favourite bounty is packed with the perfect combination of the fragrant natural aromas found in Captain Morgan Original Spiced Gold with the lip-smacking vanilla taste of ice-cold Cola.

Known more commonly as the Cuba Libre, the spoils of this tipple were first discovered on the golden shores of the Caribbean in the early 1900s. A favourite in its native Cuba, the humble rum and cola is now drunk far and wide, too, thanks to its simple ingredients and easy recipe that any buccaneer or salty sea dog can follow.

A pirate-proof way to make a wickedly good spiced rum drink with Coke is to remember; it’s always 2.5 parts Cola to 1-part Captain. Give the lime a squeeze first before dropping it into your bounty for a zestier finish.
