If you’re anything like me, you love the Caribbean and all the wonders it has to offer. Personally, I adore cruising. I think it’s one of the most wonderful ways to vacation. I happen to be a loyal cruiser of Royal Caribbean International. For those who have been on their Caribbean cruises before, you’re probably familiar with their “Drink of the Day” special. Each day, they will offer a specific cocktail and a specific shooter for $7.75.
Me being me, I made a point to save the description of the “drink of the day” that was offered each of the ten days of my last cruise this past January. One of those drinks was called a Pirate’s Cape, and I believe I have successfully recreated it, and wish to pass this amazingly delicious drink on to you!
The best part about this drink is that it’s super easy – just throw everything into a cocktail shaker with ice, then shake, strain, and serve! It’s 2 ounces of Captain Morgan, 1 ounce of blackberry brandy, 2 ounces each of orange juice and pineapple juice, and 1 ounce of grenadine.
Serve in a highball glass filled with ice and, if you’re feeling fancy, garnish with orange or pineapple. 🙂
And, just for some added atmosphere, here’s a photo from my recent trip to St. Thomas – of a cape which likely housed pirates a couple of centuries ago!
Hopefully you enjoy this cocktail as much as I did – come on summer, you’re almost here! 🙂
