A killer drink is crucial to any summer gathering. This past Tuesday, Captain Morgan proved that with a private tasting of their new limited edition rum, Captain Morgan 1671 Commemorative Blend Spiced Rum, which just hit shelves.

While I do not drink much other than margaritas and white wine, (chardonnay shots anyone?!) mixologist Jon Ruiz won me over with “The Captain’s Pineapple,” a super simple, but yummy concoction. Captain Morgan 1671 is lightly sweetened with aromas of sweet oak & dried fruits such as apricot and raisin, which the pineapple juice in this drink compliments perfectly.While the Captain brands signature drink is simply mixing their rum with a splash of cola, Ruiz gave us a few more options.
