Serves: 1 | Prep Time: 10 minutes

1/8 cup sugar
food coloring
lime wedge
2 ounces Captain Morgan Black Rum
1/2 ounce dry vermouth
blackberry, for garnish
1/4 ounce Bacardi 151


  1. Chill a cocktail glass.
  2. Pour the sugar into a small resealable storage bag.
  3. Add a few drops of the food coloring to turn the sugar the desired color. Shake the bag well to distribute the coloring throughout the sugar.
  4. Dump the bag contents onto a plate.
  5. Use a lime wedge to rim the cocktail glass.
  6. Dip the rim of the glass in the colored sugar so it is evenly coated with the sugar.
  7. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the black rum and vermouth and shake well.
  8. Strain the cocktail into the rimmed glass.
  9. Garnish with a blackberry.
  10. Optional: Drizzle the Bacardi 151 onto the top of the cocktail and light on fire. Let it burn out before you drink!
