If there's one thing Johnny Depp's film characters love, it's their rum.

First there was Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean, quotably wondering where all the rum went. Now, Depp, 48, stars in The Rum Diary, which opens Friday. 

Based on the novel of the same name by Hunter S. Thompson, the movie tells the story of journalist Paul Kemp (played by Depp), who moves to Puerto Rico and has a series of alcohol-fueled adventures.

For fans looking to get into the spirit of The Rum Diary – literally – here's a recipe for the "Caribbean Kiss" specialty drink from Brugal Rum:

Caribbean Kiss

 1.5 oz. Brugal Añejo Rum
.5 oz. Amaretto
1 oz. Simple Syrup
1 oz. Pineapple Juice

In a shaker with ice, combine ingredients, shake well and strain into a martini glass.  Garnish with a maraschino cherry.
