These Malibu Sunset Cocktails are incredibly simple to prepare and refreshing in taste! Using pineapple juice, Malibu Rum, and grenadine….this sweet tropical drink is the perfect summer cocktail!
This easy to make, tasty cocktail combines coconut rum, pineapple, and sweet grenadine! I have heard this drink referred to as a “Malibu Barbie” and even the ” Panty Dropper”. Taking one look at it though, it reminded me of a sunset, hence why I went with Malibu Sunset!
Last week, my kids were taking an evening swim and my hubby and I were relaxing on our swing. It was the perfect evening to enjoy a cocktail and we did just that! My hubby disappeared into the house for a few minutes and when he came out, he brought two of these tasty drinks!
The first thing I noticed was the coloration. Quite pretty, right? Just like a sunset, only in drink form! Almost too pretty to enjoy….keyword being “almost”.
I’m typically not a huge fan of tropical drinks, crazy I know, but I’m not a huge pineapple fan, and most drinks include pineapple. However, this drink was quite delicious! I decided to try it before knocking it, and sure enough, I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Quite refreshing, only required 3 ingredients, and a great summer beverage choice!
If you’re sitting poolside, hosting a get together, or simply looking for something to sip on one evening, I highly recommend trying these! You can have them ready to enjoy in less than 5 minutes!
We didn’t have any pineapple slices or cherries on hand, but to really enhance the look of these, garnish with a few slices of fruit on a toothpick or side of the glass and it’ll complete the look!
