Captain Morgan’s Spiced Strawberry Daiquiri


Spice up your winter with Captain Morgan’s new creation, a unique twist on the original serve!

Having recently launched Captain Morgan Tiki in March 2020 and more recently Captain Morgan Sliced Apple, Captain Morgan is always seeking new ways to recruit more consumers to the category. Each variant of the Captain Morgan portfolio has a striking contemporary bottle design that stands out on the back bar and offers consumers exciting new flavour profiles aligned to consumer trends.

Captain Morgan is the no.1 driver of flavoured rum-based spirit innovation (CGA OPMS MAT P13 2020) and 39.7% of consumers expect to be served Captain Morgan Original Spiced Gold when in a pub, bar or restaurant if they’ve asked for a rum-based spirit without specifying a brand (Kantar Worldpanel Sept 2021). With this in mind, we want to ensure that operators are able to leverage the brand recognition and create exciting seasonal serves for consumers this festive period.

The Captain Morgan Spiced Strawberry Daiquiri is a cocktail that can be enjoyed all year round and is a great way to offer spirit drinkers a premium option when spending time in the on trade this festive season. Combining Captain Morgan Original Spiced Gold, lime juice and strawberry puree, this cocktail has a sweet flavour profile and taps into the celebratory cocktail trend.
