Notes for the Malibu Sunset Cocktail:
I used Malibu rum with coconut liqueur for the alcohol. Fresh pineapple juice and yummy sweet grenadine syrup to make the sunset blend.
I experimented with mixing cranberry juice and sparkling tonic water in the drink with the rest of the ingredients. That didn’t turn out too well. My Cranberry Mimosa’s are the drink for you if you are looking for a cranberry party drink. Yum!
Malibu Sunset Cocktail tastes so good and offers colorful, elegant refreshment! Want this stunner as a virgin drink? Try using coconut water instead of the coconut rum!
Here’s the Method:
To make this yummy drink:
- Place 3-4 ice cubes in the bottom of a glass
- Pour the pineapple juice and the rum over the ice.
- Next, pour the grenadine slowly down one side of the glass (pouring too fast will mix the grenadine in and you won’t get the cool color separation)
- I stuck 2 cherries and a pineapple chunk on a toothpick for a garnish. Enjoy your drinks immediately.
Please remember to drink responsibly and kick back and relax!
