THE RUM DIARY: A COCKTAIL INSPIRED BY THE FILM

FROM PEOPLE

If there’s one thing JOHNNY DEPP’S film characters love, it’s their rum.

First there was CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW from PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, quotably wondering where all the rum went. Now JOHNNY stars in THE RUM DIARY, which opens today.

Based on the novel of the same name by HUNTER S. THOMPSON, the movie tells the story of journalist PAUL KEMP (played by JOHNNY), who moves to Puerto Rico and has a series of alcohol fueled adventures.

For fans looking to get into the spirit of THE RUM DIARY – literally – here’s a recipe for the CARIBBEAN KISS specialty drink from BRUGAL RUM:

1.5 oz. BRUGAL ANEJO RUM
.5 oz. Amaretto
1 oz. Simple Syrup
1 oz. Pineapple Juice

In a shaker with ice, combine ingredients, shake well and strain into a martini glass.

Garnish with a maraschino cherry.
