CAPTAIN MORGAN LOCO NUT EXPLOSIVE COCONUT SHOT

CAPTAIN MORGAN LOCO NUT COCONUT SHOT 2

Yep, you guessed it – contains no animal products. Guess the liquor industry finally got wind of the truth about vegans, they like to drink!

Ever see those perfume ads in swanky magazines where you pull back the fold and you can smell the scent of the fragrance being advertised?

Well, leave it to Captain Morgan to push all the appropriate buttons. The bottle itself, the wrap on it, smells like coconut. Brilliant marketing strategy. A conversation piece.

This contains rum teamed with coconut milk and spices. It’s thin, a little skim-milkish in viscosity, while remaining potent and refreshing. Maybe the thicker cream drinks are going to be replaced by the lighter varieties. I know that in the plant milks, Silk brand, for example, shoots to keep their veg and nut milks thick, but I’m not sure that’s going to be the trend in the near future. We’ll see. I like the thin.

I said to the bartender, ‘make me a white Russian out of this’. She did, and it did not disappoint. It’s been decades since I’ve enjoyed a white Russian, because I no longer drink cream.

Thank you for the pleasure Captain Morgan!

Drink responsibly.

  1. Where is the recipe!

    • A White Russian is made with vodka, Kahlua, and cream over ice. The bartender substituted Captain Morgan’s Loco Nut for the vodka and cream, then added the Kahlua – over ice in a rock’s glass. Although Captain Morgan’s is rum-based, I thoroughly enjoyed it as a White Russian. Call it a Loco Nut White Russian.

  2. The Captain Morgan page says the LocoNut has milk proteins. I’m a long time vegan and was under the same impression that this was dairy-free, but after many people asked on the Facebook page, their own page commented that it does have milk proteins.

    • They assured me that it contained no animal products. I checked their Facebook page and couldn’t find what you’re referring to. “CAPTAIN MORGAN IS GOING “LOCO” THIS SPRING! CAPTAIN MORGAN LOCONUT IS AN INTENSELY DELICIOUS BLEND OF CARIBBEAN RUM, COCONUT LIQUEUR, SPICE AND NATURAL FLAVORS. THIS JUST MAY BE THE MOST DELICIOUS SHOT TO HIT THE BEACH (OR BAR). MAKE SURE TO “SMELL THE COCO FOR A SCENT OF LOCO” TO ENJOY OUR COCONUT-SCENTED BOTTLES. FOR THE CAPTAIN’S GLUTEN-INTOLERANT CREW MEMBERS, YOU WILL BE HAPPY TO KNOW THAT LOCONUT IS GLUTEN FREE.
