Due to the spread of the novel coronavirus, we must all avoid venturing outside to keep ourselves safe. This preventive measure is either a dream come true or a nightmare, depending on your personality. For introverts, being told to stay home and avoid social interaction is already a given. Extroverts, on the other hand, may feel as though they’ve found themselves stranded on a remote island, cut off from society and all the fun that comes with it. Fortunately, Captain Morgan’s new Orange Vanilla Twist is out now, so you can make the most of this quarantine period!
We may not be able to frolic and party right now, but that doesn’t mean we have to be completely miserable. So, why not bring the fun to your home with the new, special summer-edition rum from Captain Morgan? If this flavor combination seems familiar, that’s because it is! The fun fruity iteration of Captain Morgan’s legendary rum supposedly has a taste reminiscent of the Orange Creamsicle we loved all those summers ago.
Captain Morgan’s Orange rum has a creamsicle-like taste that’s sure to give you whimsical summer thoughts
“You may be ways away from opening the pool but thanks to our new, summer-edition Orange Vanilla Twist, that poolside vibe has never been closer.”
The summer-inspired drink was officially introduced on March 24th, 2020 via the brand’s official Instagram page. Of course, it didn’t take long for it to show up on booze sleuths’ grids. And upon further digging, we discovered that the new Captain Morgan drink’s been available long before the brand introduced it! This may be puzzling, but we’ve got absolutely no complaints.
Captain Morgan’s new summer edition comes with notes of vanilla and orange
The summer edition of Captain Morgan may promise sweet flavor notes but it still has the 30% ABV the Captain’s rum is known for. There’s a lot of ways to enjoy this creamsicle-ish drink. According to the brand, you can mix it together with ginger ale, cola, or even use it as a base for a boozy slushie that you can enjoy while chilling with whoever you’re in quarantine with! Those who’ve tried the summer special are raving about it. “Please make it permanent! This is my new favorite drink!” one sampler commented. “We’ve already bought a bunch and got our friends hooked.”
Major retailers remain open during this time. So, they’re bound to have the summery rum on their shelves. We’re not so sure about liquor stores though… But if you’d rather play it safe, you can order it through Drizly.
