Malibu Sunset Cocktails

IMG_8040-1024x878Recipe: Homemade Photo Junkie

Delicious and refreshing. This Malibu Sunset cocktail is easy to make and offers a sweet blend of coconut rum, pineapple and sweet grenadine.

– 1/8 Cup Malibu Rum with coconut liqueur
– 1/2 cup pineapple juice
– Splash of grenadine (just enough to make the bottom of the glass red)
– 2 maraschino cherries and 1 slice of pineapple to garnish

1.) Put 3-4 ice cubes in the bottom of a stemless glass
2.) Pour the pineapple juice and the rum over the ice
3.) Pour the grenadine slowly down one side of the glass – pouring too fast will mix the grenadine in and you won’t get the cool cool separation
4.) Stick 2 cherries and a pineapple chunk on a toothpick for a garnish
