As many of you know, Captain Morgan is a type of rum. What you may not be familiar with is that rum actually comes from sugarcane and, therefore, contains a hint of sweetness. 

A good rum, such as Captain Morgan, will also add delicious notes of vanilla and caramel to any drink and although the classic Captain Morgan is always a reliable choice, since its introduction in the 1940s, Captain Morgan has been adapted into numerous different flavors including spiced rum, orange vanilla and white rum (amongst many others). 

So now the question is, what kind of Captain Morgan cocktail should you make?

Because of its sweet undertones, rum pairs well with a wide variety of drinks and we’ve come up with a list of our top 21 favorites that offer a diverse palette of flavors, so you can go beyond the standard Pina Colada (although you can never go wrong with one of these either).

Get ready because you’re in for a treat!
