Weekend Cheers: Spiced Orange Cocktail


captain-morgan-orange-cocktail

How are you fellow peaches?  I am over the moon that the weekend is here and am excited to share today's cocktail with you.  First let me preface by saying that I love rum.  It has a magical way of mentally taking me away to a tropical island where Bob Marley continually plays in the background.  Captain Morgan* spiced rum gets its amber color from being aged in charred white oak barrels and is widely popular for being paired with Coca-Cola.  As much as this Atlanta girl loves her Coca-Cola, I wanted to dress this up a bit and make it porch perfect.  Three cheers for the Captain and hope y'all enjoy your weekend!
