Captain Morgan Spiced Rum: you know it, you've tried it, and you probably have some horrible memories of college parties where you had way too much of it. This stuff is downright ubiquitous, and if you peruse the reviews online they're almost all tempered by a healthy dose of nostalgia. It's not terrible, and for the price you could certainly do a whole lot worse. Even some of the snobbiest spirit critics give the Captain its due, and it deserves some credit for being cheap and drinkable. Besides, you can use it to make the Cable Car Cocktail, which is a very decent drink.
