A favorite drink of mine is Malibu and Orange Juice. This is my go-to drink that I'm sure others would say and have said it is a girly drink. Well, I am a girl and it tastes great! I love rum. Maybe I am part pirate? Who knows?
But if I want a fruitier version of this tried and true drink of mine, I go with my tried and true Malibu Punch.
A little back story, I have been a bartender since 2000 on and off throughout the years. I have worked in restaurants, daiquiri shops and bars all over. It was fun and a great way to support myself. The fast pace of the work along with the nighttime hours made it a great fit for me. I am such a night owl and I love being busy, so it was perfect. I would get tired of drinking coke and I love experimenting with different things behind the bar so, one time I combined all the juices that were in the bar gun as a non-alcoholic alternative to coke. It came out great. Then, after I drank it I realized that it would be great with rum and that Malibu would be best. And here it is! I've made Here is the recipe!
2 oz Malibu Rum
2 oz Pineapple Juice
2 oz Orange Juice
2 oz Cranberry Juice
Splash of Grenadine (optional)
Garnish with cherries and an orange slice (optional)
Measure and pour liquids in one glass. Use a separate glass and pour from one glass to another glass. This will ensure the contents are properly mixed and will taste like it should. Now if you do not have a measuring cup to measure out exactly 2 oz, then eyeball it. For future reference, usually equal portions of anything make a good drink.
