Captain Morgan has done it again with 3 new flavors for Spring!

Spring is here! Time to celebrate with new flavors from Captain Morgan, Pineapple, Coconut and Grapefruit Rum. New flavors mean new fun drink recipes, which make the experience all the better. Each cocktail is perfect for favorite spring activities, watching a baseball game with friends or enjoying patio drinks.


Below you will find a variety of cocktails made with Bulleit Rye, Crown Royal Regal Apple, and the new Captain Morgan Grapefruit Rum. If your not into spirits try out this wine spritzer recipe with the recently launched Chateau La Paws Chardonnay, which gives back to rescue dogs.

Sold at a suggested retail price of $15.99 for a 750 mL bottle, each variant blends Captain Morgan White Rum with natural flavors, making them perfect for simple cocktails, along with more complex, Caribbean-inspired drinks. You can find the new flavors in most major liquor stores.

So my personal favorite which was a shock even to myself but hey I try everything once, is the Palomaloha. I totally am not a fan of grapefruit but the Palomaloha is a sweet treat which had just enough tart that made it a really great easy to sip drink. All these are easy drinks to serve up to friends and family, and go great for any occasion.
