I had the pleasure of attending the Captain Morgan Cannon Blast Bar Crawl in Orlando, FL this past weekend. Not only did I get to try the new Captain Morgan Cannon Blast rum, I saw a man get shot out of a cannon, TWICE.
The event was so fun. Wall Street Plaza in Orlando was filled with people ready to turn up. The people were so nice and happy. Everyone had the same goal: to drink, responsibly of course, and to have a great time.
I first tried the Captain Morgan Cannon Blast rum at our group dinner. I’m not really a rum drinker, so I can admit it took me by surprise at first. The drink was a combination of citrus and spice and you got a mouthful of flavor. Don’t like shots and prefer mixed drinks? Captain Morgan already had that covered. The provided a menu of mixed drinks that you can try with their original Captain Morgan rum. The Morgan Monster was my drink of choice for the weekend. It was delicious.
The most fun part about the trip had to be seeing a guy get blasted out of a cannon not once but twice. Captain Morgan really did a great job promoting their new drink. I mean what better way to advertise a drink called Cannon Blast then to shoot a human out of a cannon? Brian Miser, a human cannonball connoisseur, climbed right into the cannon and waited for the crowd to countdown to 1. His wife lit the fuse and BOOM, Brian is flying halfway across the bar area. I stood there in astonishment because I had never seen anything like this done before. After the second blast from the cannon was successful, I knew Captain Morgan had a hit. The crowd loved the idea of a human cannonball and what better way to have this done then at a bar crawl.
Overall, the weekend was so much fun. Captain Morgan did a great job promoting their drink to the public and I’m sure it will be a favorite among the people. Everyone, 21 and older, should try the new Captain Morgan Cannon Blast rum. I’m sure you will love it. And remember, always drink responsibly.
