Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

DRINK MATCH: Zombie

We haven't seen the latest "Pirates" installment, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES. But if there's one thing we know about the series, it's that Capt. Jack Sparrow loves him some rum. The most appropriate rum concoction for pirates, the Zombie, is a powerful and deceptive libation, as the smooth, fruity taste masks its potency. You can even light it on fire! Other popular rum potables include the Daiquirí, MOJITO, and the Cuba Libre, more commonly known as the Rum and Coke. Recipes for all four are listed below!


Jack running low on supplies.
