Yes it is but I think the Captain Morgans add a little more sweetness. I bet the coconut rum is good with it though.

I've had this recipe since I was a teen. But instead of Capt'n Morgan's I always used a dark rum like Bacardi's. I've also used it with coconut rum(Malibu's). Any way you fix it it's delicious!
