In Pursuit of Pirates Part #4 ~ Why Is The Rum Gone? A Pirate Inspired Recipe from Kristen of Cooking with Mickey

We have shared a lot of Pirate inspired posts since the beginning of the month from memories of experiencing Pirates of the Caribbean for the first time to photo tips for taking amazing photos of the interior of the attraction to amazing scrapbook layouts to preserve your Disney pirate themed memories and photos.  For part 4, I am excited to welcome Kristen from Cooking with Mickey and her pirate inspired recipe.

Why is the rum all gone? Because we've taken it for making a drink suitable for a scalawag or salty wench. Fans of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, or movie, know that rum is important. It's the drink of pirates! Since we are in pursuit of pirates, we've got what they're looking for - RUM.

So grab your sword, compass and rum... and let's get started with my recipe for Stranded with Captain Jack Sparrow.

Stranded with Capt. Jack Sparrow
2 oz coconut rum
1 oz spiced rum
Fresh lime juice
  1. In a cocktail shaker mix coconut and spiced rum.
  2. Use the lime to wet the top of the glass and dip into margarita salt; kosher salt will also work.
  3. Pour into a lowball glass over ice.
  4. Add a squeeze of fresh lime juice and serve

So drink up me hearties, yo ho!

If you haven't visited Kristen over at Cooking with Mickey, I highly recommend that you do.  She shares a lot of Disney dining reviews and Disney recipes.  You can follow her on Twitter at @CookingwMickey and on Facebook at Cooking with Mickey.
