Fun fact: This drink was created from the movie The Life Aquatic by quirky director Wes Anderson. In it, the main character Steve Zissou says that a certain bartender made him "the best rum cannonball [he'd] ever tasted." Fans of the movie were drawn to the drink, and brought it from fiction to reality. Why not throw a movie night and sip cocktails the characters sip on as well?
