Tips for Making the Best Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum Ginger Lime
Follow these tips for making the tastiest version of this cocktail:
- Use fresh limes and squeeze the juice right before mixing the drink. Bottled lime juice won’t have the same bright, vibrant flavor.
- Use a high-quality ginger beer like Fever Tree or Fentiman’s for the best flavor. Avoid flat, watery ginger ales if you can.
- Don’t over-squeeze the lime wedge when garnishing. Just a gentle press is needed to get it to stick to the glass rim.
- Add a splash of club soda at the end for some extra fizz and effervescence.
- Customize the cocktail with muddled cucumber or jalapeño slices if you want to add some extra flavors.
