How Captain Morgan Once Saved the World

I have been around for my fair share of elections, but none of those top this last one. I don’t like to talk politics or religion because I believe everyone is entitled to his/her own beliefs. With that said, I have never been so stressed as I was on Election Night 2016. The whole campaign was a headache and regardless of the results I’m glad it’s over.

I employed a special friend to help me get through the night while electoral votes trickled in at insanely slow rates. That friend’s name is Captain Morgan. He’s been a great friend throughout the years and this one night, in particular, I believe he helped to save the world.

See, me and the Cap (that’s what I call him) have been through a lot together. He’s been there for heartbreak and celebrations. He’s also around when I need to relax and unwind. Yep, me and Cappy have stuck together through thick and thin and that’s why I was super stoked when he delivered something new just in the nick of time.

Captain Morgan Jack-O’Blast

Imagine a Caribbean rum mixed with your favorite seasonal flavors like fresh pumpkin, cinnamon, and more. This is the first pumpkin spiced rum ever to hit shelves and I was thrilled. I was taking shots but I’ve heard Jack-O’Blast works well in mixed drinks too. There are a few recipes below.

At 30% ABV/60 proof, this was just what I needed to make it through election night, and I can see it helping me unwind pretty much any other time too. It has a smooth flavor with only a slight kick. The other great thing about Captain Mogan Jack-O’Blast is the bottle it comes in. A round pumpkin. It’s completely perfect for any fall gathering!
