An evening with the Captain Morgan !

As some wise man has once said  ” Rum is the medicine for internal wounds ” . And Captain Morgan landed in Guwahati six days after Valentine’s Day to give the single ladies and gentlemen some respite from their mundane life !!

The Captain Morgan !

Launch of the Captain Morgan Original Rum in Guwahati
I must confess that I had absolutely no idea about Captain Morgan Original Rum before I got the first-hand experience of tasting it . The Cocktail Party was hosted in Brooklyn Blues , Guwahati and the ambiance and service was just perfect to go with the drink . Be it neat , with aerated drinks or the beautiful cocktails served , the Captain Morgan Original Rum is just legendary .
The party started quite slowly with few drinks being served to the guests . But the scene changed when the mascot , the Captain Morgan walked in with his beautiful ladies ! From the bored sitting-in-the corner-quietly type environment , it suddenly became a dancing , cheering and posing with the handsome guy kind of environment .
