Malibu drinks are fast gaining popularity worldwide. Read through this article to learn a few recipes that you can try out at home.

Malibu Drinks

It isn’t very rare for the common man, when a couple of drinks down, to say “I’m in Heaven”. Incidentally, Malibu rum is just one of those smooth magic potions that will send you floating away in the centre of the delightful Caribbean Sea. Now do not jump to conclusions; the alcohol content of Malibu rum is nearly half that of regular distilled rum. The good news lies in the wonderful fact that you can drink twice as much and still remain in control! and the bad news, well, there isn’t any, unless you secretly love hangovers!

Originally, the bartenders justified the existence of Malibu rum as a quick and easy way for making ‘piña coladas’. But within a few years, this coconut extract liquor gained momentum in Jamaica and several other locations. Famous for its sweet essence, many prefer to drink it neat or on the rocks. However, it continues to be the golden ingredient for most of the splendid Caribbean cocktails. Malibu is a colorless drink, primarily to prevent interference with colors of different mixed drinks. Its distinctive taste vetoes substitution of liquor in any trademarked cocktail. Malibu rum hits the most sensitive spot on one’s palate, just like how an “I love you” instantly strikes the heart. Now here’s your chance to fix one (or more) of these four Malibu cocktails and bask in its infinite magnificence.
