Oh my this drink looks good and has us dreaming of relaxing on a tropical island right about now.
Ok, back to reality. We may not be able to jet off for a summer getaway, but we sure can enjoy this Malibu Sunset Cocktail with yummy coconut rum. Check out the recipe below and then pop on over to Homemade Food Junkie to watch the video on how to create these pretty colored layers so that your cocktail looks just as good as it tastes.
Malibu Sunset Cocktail
1/4 cup Malibu rum with coconut liqueur
1/2 cup pineapple juice
2 Tbsp. grenadine (a splash to make the bottom of the glass red)
2 maraschino cherries & 1 slice pineapple for garnish
Place 3-4 ice cubes in the bottom of glass
Pour the pineapple juice and the rum over the ice
Next, pour the grenadine very slowly down one side of the glass (pouring too fast will mix the grenadine in and you won’t get the pretty colored layers)
Garnish with cherries and pineapple on a toothpick
