Captain Morgan Drinks: Pineapple Rum Cocktails

Pineapple rum cocktails are a great way to get in the mood for summer. They’re not too sweet, and they taste like you’re on a tropical vacation. If you don’t have these ingredients at your house, head over to your favorite store and grab some pineapple juice, Captain Morgan Spiced Rum (or any other spiced rum brand), and your favorite garnishes. Mix some ice cubes with the juice in a shaker or blender until it’s nice and frothy. Pour into glasses with plenty of ice! Let’s make some Captain Morgan drinks… Cheers!

How to Make a Pineapple Rum Cocktail

Captain Morgan is the most popular spiced rum in America, which means it’s perfect for your next party or event. There’s no better way to celebrate than with these fun drinks that everyone will love. Captain Morgan is a well-known spiced rum that comes in different flavors. It was created by the Captain himself, Sir Henry Morgan (we all know his name), and first produced in 1944. On his deathbed he requested that a barrel of rum be sent as tribute to King Charles II and was buried with a toast from one full cup – “Here’s to my old friend, Good Health.”

Captain Morgain Drinks Ingredients

Captain Morgan’s is a well-known alcohol beverage that has been around for decades. It’s produced by the oldest rum distillery in the Western Hemisphere, where over 400 years of history and experience go into making this liquor. They make Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum with select Caribbean rums, giving it a smooth taste and distinctive flavor. This spiced rum can be enjoyed on its own or mixed with your favorite juice or mixer – but we don’t recommend mixing it with cola!

To get started with your spiced rum recipe, you will need a cocktail shaker, a tall glass, and a glass garnish. Don’t worry, I have a full list at the bottom of this post for inspiration. Ice will also be important. So, let’s get mixing and ready to serve!

Ingredients 

  • 1 Shot Captain Morgan (you can use 1 oz Captain Morgan, 2 oz, 3 oz, or even 4 oz depending on how much you are making).
  • At least 1 cup of Pineapple Juice (this depends on the size of your tall glass and shaker).
  • Pineapple Leaves (Garnish) 
  • Cherry (Garnish)
  • Lime juice or wedges
  • Ice Cubes 
  1. Fill a tall glass with ice cubes.
  2. Pour in one shot of Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum. A shot is typically 2 oz but you can also change it up with 1 oz or even 3 oz depending on how you like to make your cocktails.
  3. Top with 8 oz of pineapple juice and stir.
  4. Garnish with pineapple leaves and cherries and prepare to serve.
  5. Cheers!
  6. You could also shake it up with a shaker! Shake it in a shaker and strain over ice before serving in a tall glass.

How to Make Crushed Ice

Want to upgrade this cocktail? Try it with crushed ice! If you’re tired of drinking your favorite drink with ice cubes, it’s time to learn how to make crushed ice. This step-by-step guide will show you exactly what tools and ingredients you’ll need to get started. All that’s left is for you to decide which recipe suits your taste best!

One of my favorite drinks is a mojito, besides this pineapple rum drink. It’s refreshing and the crushed ice makes it so much more enjoyable than just sipping on cold, regular ice cubes! The problem with crushed ice is that it melts quickly and can’t be used for long periods of time. Luckily there are some easy ways to make your own crushed ice without a machine.ย While these methods take patience and time, they will provide you with the perfect amount of crushed ice for an entire summer season!

I’m sure you’ve had crushed ice at a party or event before, but did you know that it’s not so hard to make yourself? All you need is some ice cubes and a blender. It’s an easy way to keep things cool on a hot summer day! 

This is a simple process that will take less than ten minutes and can be done with the help of your food processor. All you need are two cups of water and four cups of ice cubes.ย To give it a more natural feel, add three tablespoons of sugar and one tablespoon of salt to the mixture. Now all you have to do is pour everything into the blender or food processor and let them go for about five minutes before pouring out what will be an icy treat on a hot day!

If you’re hosting a party and want to mix up your iced drinks, try crushing some ice in a blender for another method. This is an easy way to make sure that everything stays cold longer! Just fill the blender about halfway with water and add ice cubes – then blend on low speed for 5-10 seconds. Be careful not to overfill the blender or it could overflow when you turn it on.

Which Captain Morgan Rum Should You Use?

Captain Morgan Spiced Rum is what I use most often in mixed drinks. The captain is the man of the house for spiced rum. If you’re looking for a drink that will take your taste buds on an adventure, this one’s for you. It’s got hints of molasses and mixed spices.

Captain Morgan Silver Spiced Rum has an alcohol content of 35%. This means that one serving size is 1.5 ounces and contains 66 calories per serving size.

We used Captain Morgan Private Stock in this recipe. Ever seen a bottle of Captain Morgan Private Stock? It looks like it can be some good stuff, but you’re not sure what’s in it. Well, let us tell you! They make it with select Caribbean rums that are aged up to five years and blended together for the ultimate pirate-worthy taste. And to pique your interest, we’ll just assure you it is an award winner at various international spirits competitions. We know this sounds too good to be true, but there really is no other explanation why Captain Morgan Private Stock won so many times! Captain Morgan Private Stock is a spiced rum with hints of vanilla. It’s perfect for sipping on the rocks or mixing into cocktails. It has an alcohol content of 40% ABV and it retails for $20-$25 per bottle.

The Best Rum Cocktail Garnishes

What are cocktail garnishes? Cocktail garnishes are a decorative and functional topping for cocktails. They add color, flavor, texture, and flair to your drink! Some popular cocktail garnishes include citrus wedges like lemons or limes; olives; cherries; orange wheels; pineapple wedges with leaves attached (to make an umbrella); sugar cubes (for stirring drinks); celery sticks with blue cheese stuffed inside (called a cowboy shooter); jalapenos in tequila shots (called a shot of death).

Cocktail garnish recipes change by country. For example, the French use lemon twists while the Italians love their cherry stems. Here are a few other ideas for cocktail garnishes for this recipe:

  • Mint leaves
  • Pineapple chunks
  • Orange peel twists or an orange slice
  • Maraschino cherries
  • Lemon or lime wedges or you can try a slice of each
  • Sugar cubes to rim the glass with (optional)
  • 1 tsp coconut flakes
  • Cinnamon
  • Herbs
