Vita Coco and Captain Morgan Rum Blow February out of the Water
February is a strange time of year for alcoholic drink enthusiasts. Fall flavors are no longer appealing. We drank enough eggnog cocktails to sustain us until next Christmas. Summer drinks would be great, but it’s hard to get your hands on them when there’s still snow on the ground. In the hard seltzer and RTD market, you can expect big brands to release seasonal flavor packs in summer, fall, and winter. By February, unfortunately, these brands have usually discontinued their seasonal flavor packs, and these packs have vanished from the shelves. Furthermore, we likely won’t see next season’s flavor drops for another few months. Well, Vita Coco and Captain Morgan decided to shoot the hum-drum month of February straight out of the water (as the best pirates do). The two popular beverage brands just released a new ready-to-drink cocktail (RTD) named Vita Coco Spiked with Captain Morgan.
“There’s a point every year when people are ready to kick winter to the curb, and Vita Coco Spiked with Captain Morgan delivers the taste of the tropics that is synonymous with the fun of warmer days. And that’s what this collab is all about – keeping the spirit of summer going year-round,” said Anne Nosko, VP of Captain Morgan, in a February 1st, 2023 press release. “We jumped at the opportunity to work with the best in the business, to bring people Vita Coco Spiked with Captain Morgan and now we’re all one sip closer to summer.”
Vita Coco Spiked with Captain Morgan
The new RTD Vita Coco Spiked with Captain Morgan comes in three flavors, Lime Mojito, Strawberry Daiquiri, and Piña Colada. All three flavors have an alcohol content of 5% ABV. The calorie content of each flavor is 145 calories per 12 oz can. According to the press release, the Lime Mojito flavor “boast(s) notes of fresh muddled garden mint and ripe juicy lime.” The Lime Mojito has 13 grams of carbohydrates. The Strawberry Daiquiri is described as “featuring hints of ripe juicy lime rounded out with the flavor of sweet strawberries.” The carbs in this Strawberry Daiquiri RTD come in slightly higher at 13.9 grams. Last but not least, the press release describes the Piña Colada as “perfectly balanced with the flavors of ripe pineapple, creamy coconut and Caribbean rum.” This drink has a carbohydrate content of 13.5 grams.
“Everywhere you go in the tropics, people are mixing their favorite spirit with coconut water,” said The Vita Coco Company Co-Founder and Executive Chairman Mike Kirban. “Today, I am excited that Vita Coco Spiked with Captain Morgan is bringing the tropics to backyards and refrigerators everywhere. With as little effort as popping open a can, friends can gather at home and enjoy a coconut water cocktail that tastes as good as what they’d get on an epic vacation.”
