Captain Morgan Releases Watermelon Smash

Captain Morgan Recipes

March 9, 2018  — The creative crew at Captain Morgan has come up with another doozy of a bottle and flavor to join the Canon Blast released in 2015, the Pumpkin Jack O’Lantern in the Fall of 2016 and last summer’s LocoNut coconut flavored spiced rum in a coconut shaped bottle.  The newest addition is Captain Morgan Watermelon Smash.

Described as explosively delicious, Watermelon Smash blends Caribbean rum with ripe, juicy watermelon flavor that will immediately banish the blues and summon summer despite lingering slush and chilly temperatures.  Watermelon is the quintessential fun and sun fruit.  Cookouts and pool parties can’t be far behind.

The bottle looks like a watermelon.  Scratch and sniff and enjoy the aroma of sweet ripe watermelon.  Even better, it tastes like watermelon.  It can be served as a chilled shot or as a base for the really easy to make cocktails below.

Captain Morgan Watermelon Smash is rolling out nationally right now. It is 50 proof, 25% ABV and has a suggested retail price of $15.99 for a 750 ml bottle.
