Summer is in full swing and as the temperature rises so does the need for an ice cold summer cocktail.
There is nothing quite like sitting at a tiki bar overlooking the ocean with a perfectly made margarita, until now.
Although nothing will ever replace tequila for this summer pastime, I suggest trying something different to change it up a bit next time you are at your favorite watering hole or vacation spot.
Substitute tequila for Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum, whether you make your margarita’s from scratch or from a pre mixed store bought bottle, the Captain will give this refreshing summer libation an energizing change that you won’t soon forget.
Typically, a margarita with tequila will have a bit of a bite but with the change to Captain Morgan’s that bite becomes a soft smooth taste that resembles that of a creamsicle. If you grew up enjoying creamsicles in the summer I encourage you to give this drink a try, you won’t be disappointed.
Over the past few weeks I ordered this drink at 3 different bars, to my surprise none of the bartenders ever heard of it. Once I assured them that yes, I said a Captain Morgan’s margarita, they had to try it. To their surprise, they loved it. Based on that overwhelming feedback I wanted to make sure to share it so that everyone else would have the chance to try it, if they haven’t already.
Below is a recipe to a classic margarita (with Captain instead of tequila). Give it a try and be sure to share with your friends.
Captain Morgan’s Margarita
- 2 oz Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
- 1 oz lime juice
- 1 oz triple sec
- 1 lime slice
Fill shaker with ice and add ingredients. Shake for a few seconds and serve over ice. Add lime slice.
If you wish to add coarse salt to the rim, before filling glass, rub the lime around the edge and place rim of glass in salt.
If you would rather a quick frozen Captain margarita;
Fill blender with ice. Add Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum and top off with Mr. & Mrs. T’s Margarita mix and blend.
The only thing that can make this drink taste better is if you enjoy it wearing one of our Tee’s, so click here to order. Next, go get your ingredients and sit back and soak up every ounce of what this summer has to offer because it will be gone before you know it.
Oh yeah, drink responsibly,
