The Newest Member of the Captain Morgan© Shot Family

Our friends over at Captain Morgan© let us in on their new product; Captain Morgan Watermelon Smash! The explosively delicious, watermelon-flavored shot is arriving just in time for backyard cookouts and pool parties. Captain Morgan Watermelon Smash blends Caribbean rum with ripe, juicy watermelon flavor that’s synonymous with summertime. Best enjoyed as a chilled shot, Watermelon Smash can also be served in a number of delicious cocktail recipes (see below).

After Captain Morgan© blasted into the world of shots with its Captain Morgan© Cannon Blast Spiced Rum, Watermelon Smash is the new addition to the family. Not only does Watermelon Smash taste like a watermelon, it looks (and smells!) like one too. Similar to LocoNut, the Watermelon Smash packaging resembles a watermelon and produces the sweet aroma of ripe watermelon when you scratch the bottle. Watermelon Smash (50 proof, 25% ABV) has a suggested retail price of $15.99 for a 750 ml bottle.
