The weather is getting warmer and summer is just around the corner. Well unless you live int he UK, then its still cold but hopefully summer is just around the corner. Either way Malibu has a fantastic way to keep cool on those hot summer days. Malibu sent me a limited edition bottle of Malibu that they have just launched along with a flyer they have produced for The House of Drinks. The flyer has a fantastic Malibu Pina Colada cocktail recipe which I would like to share with you.
What you will need: 50ml Malibu, 75ml Pinapple Juice, 50ml coconut milk.
Step 1. Add Malibu, pineapple juice and coconut milk to a cocktail shaker and top with ice. Fresh coconut milk is always the best but as I don’t live in a tropical paradise I am using curtained along with pineapple juice from a carton as well. Also as not everyone has a cocktail shaker at home I am going to simply stir in a jug however it will turn out better using a cocktail shaker.
Step 2. Give it a good shake or stir in my case. Make sure your remember to put the lid on tight.
Step 3. Strain into a tall glass filled with cubes of ice. Since summer hasn’t yet come round to us in the UK I am going to skip the ice.
Step 4. Garnish with a pineapple wedge and enjoy.
I’m a big fan of pina coladas and am happy to say that this one tastes fantastic. Although I didn’t have any fresh pineapple at home I’m sure this little garnish detail would have made it even better as would a little umbrella.
