Malibu Sunset: A fun, fruity, easy Malibu drink recipe!! Because there’s really no wrong way to do pineapple, orange juice, coconut rum, grenadine, and cherries! If you’ve never had this fruity alcoholic drink, you should change that!!
A Malibu Drink Tastes Like an Island Getaway
This post has been slightly updated since the original 2013 publish date.
Living in San Diego, I’m normally just a couple hours from Malibu. But recently I was in Aruba and Malibu never tasted so good.
If you’ve never had this fruity Malibu drink, you really should change that. Someone will say they don’t like coconut, but I don’t think it tastes ridiculously coconutty. Coconut Malibu tastes what a tropical vacation should taste like.
Home away from Home
This is Palm Beach, Aruba. My most favorite place on earth. This little slice of beach is where I go to mentally when the going gets tough in life. It’s my happy place.
Cool Malibu Rum Drinks for Hot Summer Days
Holy moly these things go down way too easily in the heat and humidity and I know it is still plenty warm in many parts of the country.
This Malibu drink is fruity and sweet without being over-the-top like some fruity alcoholic drinks can be, and it’s so refreshing.
I love pineapple juice and it’s a perfect pairing with coconut rum. Cheers!
This is like drinking a tropical vacation. Fruity and sweet (but not too sweet), and perfectly refreshing. They go down way too fast and very easily. Cheers!
