Top 10 Captain Morgan Drinks with Recipes
What is Captain Morgan
Captain Morgan is an old brand of spiced rum that originated in Jamaica’s Kingston. Manufactured by Diageo, the golden-color drink was introduced in 1944, though now, it has a few other variants which many rum-lovers prefer drinking straight. It gets its name from Sir Henry Morgan, a Welsh privateer of the Caribbean Sea who lived in the 17th century. Known for its exotic taste, the alcohol percentage (ABV) of this carb-less, gluten-free liquor varies between 17.5 and 50, with a 1-oz serving containing about 64 calories.
