What can I mix with Malibu?

Malibu can be mixed with a range of other spirits and mixers. As Malibu has an iconic taste I’d recommend not having something which is also strong. Vodka is one of my favourites if I want to make the cocktail more powerful.

Malibu is alcoholic but it’s not hugely strong so there isn’t too much wrong with adding a little extra in my opinion.

In the way of mixers and other things to mix with Malibu the best options are pineapple juice, Coca Cola, lemonade, lime juice for a twist and weirdly, but also delicious, cranberry juice.

In this recipe for the Malibu vodka cocktail, I used Malibu and pineapple juice. Pineapple juice pairs with the beautiful tropical flavours so well and makes a lovely quick drink alone if you want something to think about holiday quickly.

What do I need for an easy Malibu cocktail?

The main part of wonderful Malibu vodka cocktail drink is only 5 ingredients plus ice. The Malibu provides that incredible coconut rum flavour. The vodka doesn’t add much in taste but does impact the alcohol side. Adding the fresh lime adds a sharpness to fight against the sweetness. The sugar syrup thickens up the finished cocktail slightly. Then to finish the cocktail you top up with pineapple juice.

  • Ice cubes
  • 25 ml Malibu
  • 25 ml Vodka
  • 12 fresh lime juice
  • 12 sugar syrup
  • pineapple juice

How do you drink Malibu Coconut Rum?

Malibu is a soft spirit and there are people who drink it neat. I however think the best way to drink it is with a mixer like Coca Cola, lemonade and the best of all, like in this recipe, simple pineapple juice. If you can juice it fresh the taste is far more amazing than pineapple juice in a carton but even that is wodnerful.

Does Malibu Coconut Rum get you drunk?

Drinking a lot of Malibu coconut rum will get you drink. Although only 21% proof, a lot less than other rums, Malibu is still alcoholic if not over poweringly so. As a lighter alcoholic drink it really works well for hot summer days.

It is a great tall drinks where you want something long and that will last and when it’s hot and it’s too easy to drink quickly it won’t make you drunk too fast.

    I know a lot of people tend to like their cocktails on the sweeter side, and this is a great option for them. It looks light and refreshing, plus the flavor of lime and pineapple can’t be beat.
