Create your own apple shot glass with the new @CaptainMorganUS #AppleSmash
NEW YORK (a.k.a. The Big Apple) Sept. 26 2018—The art of taking shots is ripe for an upgrade. To coincide with the launch of the new Captain Morgan Apple Smash, the Captain is taking that “an apple a day” motto to the next level, giving away thousands of free apples to fans in various cities all across the country—along with some very cool supplies to help them create their very own Apple Smash shot at house parties, tailgates and other fall season festivities.
From now through the end of October, the free apples —available only to partygoers 21+ — will be distributed to fans at Captain Morgan events nationwide. The apples will be accompanied by a tool referred to as the Apple Smasher.
Using the Apple Smasher tool is pretty easy. So easy in fact, fans can create their own shot glass using the how-to video below. “ += ,” exclaimed Captain Morgan.
Captain Morgan Apple Smash is a ready to serve shot of apple flavored deliciousness, jam-packed into a really cool scratch-and-sniff scented bottle (now available, FYI.) Suggested retail price is $15.99 with a 30% ABV at 60 proof. The flavorful green apple shot is perfect for all occasions.
Apple Smash joins Captain Morgan Watermelon Smash, Captain Morgan LocoNut and Captain Morgan Jack-O’Blast as the newest member to join the brand’s family of deliciously flavorful shots, and is available all year-round. “Captain is always looking for the most fun way to enjoy our delicious range of flavorful shots, and what could be more fun than drinking Apple Smash out of a cored apple. This flavor is ripe for the pickin’…and drinking.” said Linda Bethea, Vice President of Captain Morgan.
Share your shot with the Captain on and at @CaptainMorganUSA and on at @CaptainMorganUS. Don’t forget to tag your using our nifty #LikeACaptain hashtag.
