Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day, and to celebrate, Captain Morgan Rum is challenging you land lubbers (21 and up) across the US to channel your inner buccaneer and talk like a pirate for the day, all for a good cause.
Captain Morgan is encouraging their fans to share their celebrations on social media. Captain & Colaaarr is the ‘official cocktail’ of TLAPD, and for every consumer who uses the #CaptainandColaaarr and #TLAPD hashtags on social media, the rum brand will donate $1 to charity, including City Harvest.
In case you aren’t sure how to talk like a pirate or mix up a Captain & Colaaarr, our friends at Captain Morgan sent us a bottle of Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum with an attached pirate language guide. Use some of these phrases tonight at the bar, and you’ll be sure to impress the ladies:
Borin’ English: I need a Captain and Cola Now!
Scurvy Pirate: I be needin’ to swill a Captain and Colaaarr smartly, me lass!
Borin’ English: Hey man, you ready for happy hour?
