After a long day, all I want to do is kick up my feet and relax. So what better way to do that than with a mixed drink?

Whether you prefer 2-ingredient cocktails or love to mix craft drinks at home, rum cocktails should definitely feature in your repertoire. And wouldn’t you know it—mixing one up just got a lot more fun with the new Captain Morgan Cherry Vanilla!

How to Drink This Cherry Vanilla Rum

Like the Captain says, this drink will “throw it back to classic ice cream and cola float creations of the 1950s.” I don’t know about you, but I don’t need much more persuading than that.

You definitely can mix Captain Morgan Cherry Vanilla with cola to complement its flavor. However, we’d be remiss not to mention a handful of recipes from the Captain himself, including an ice cream float:

  • Cherry Vanilla Cola Float: Mix Captain Morgan Cherry Vanilla, cola and vanilla ice cream for the perfect soda fountain-inspired dessert.
  • Cherry Vanilla and Pineapple: This one is simple: Captain Morgan Cherry Vanilla and pineapple juice. Garnish with a cherry or pineapple wedge. Your vacation starts now!
  • Cherry Vanilla Bombshell: Mix Captain Morgan rum, sweet vermouth and bitter aperitivo liqueur in a cocktail shaker over ice. Garnish with a rum-soaked cherry and enjoy your day.

You could even add this new Captain Morgan release to a rum cake for an extra flavor boost. The possibilities are endless.

Where Can I Find the Rum?

You can find Captain Morgan Cherry Vanilla on Drizly or at Total Wine for around $15. It’s also available at Binny’s and many other retail liquor locations. Like Captain Morgan Sliced Apple, this limited-edition rum won’t be around for long!
