A Malibu Drink Tastes Like an Island Getaway

This post has been slightly updated since the original 2013 publish date.

Living in San Diego, I’m normally just a couple hours from Malibu. But recently I was in Aruba and Malibu never tasted so good.

If you’ve never had this fruity Malibu drink, you really should change that. Someone will say they don’t like coconut, but I don’t think it tastes ridiculously coconutty. Coconut Malibu tastes what a tropical vacation should taste like.

Technically this fruity drink has a splash of cranberry, but I didn’t have any and wasn’t going to buy any for a splash. Just use more grenadine. Scratch that. More Malibu.

Fruity Alcoholic Drinks Taste like Aruba

Home away from Home

This is Palm Beach, Aruba. My most favorite place on earth. This little slice of beach is where I go to mentally when the going gets tough in life. It’s my happy place.

This Malibu drink is fruity and sweet without being over-the-top like some fruity alcoholic drinks can be, and it’s so refreshing. 

I love pineapple juice and it’s a perfect pairing with coconut rumCheers!
