  • Cook's Note:
  • Captain's Volcano: For a richer taste substitute Captain Morgan's® Black Rum. The molasses instead of pressed sugar cane adds a flavor kick.
  • Captain's Tempest: For a more smooth, rich taste for the sophisticated palate. Substitute Red Stag® Cinnamon Bourbon and Captain Morgan's® Black Rum. Add to a shaker and shake thoroughly; pour into a high ball glass. Also good over ice.

I found myself pleasantly surprised cinnamon, spice, and cola worked, but they did! I had all of the ingredients on hand so I decided to add a "face" to this recipe. I used Coke Zero (R) and Bacardi Spiced Rum. While it won't be a "go to", I'd definitely drink it again should the occasion arise... CHEERS!
