Happy Friday everyone! What a week! Ended the week tonight with a Mother/Son Baseball game at my second oldest's school. Bring on the weekend. This is the first year that one of my children has a soccer game on Mother's Day......kind of odd, but we'll roll with it.
I gave tonight's cocktail 4.5 shots out of 5. I really enjoy the taste of Malibu Rum. As long as there's a good balance between it and whatever else you are mixing with it. Sometimes when I get a used to get a Malibu Rum and coke there would be too much rum in it and it would taste....like i had too much Banana Boat Suntan Lotion in my mouth, then afterwords it would leave my mouth feeling sticky or something......yuck. Anyways, the Malibu Sunrise is a good refreshing cocktail. I (once again) never thought of mixing Malibu Rum and orange juice together in a cocktail. Those two being the main ingredients I mean. After a long week, this cocktail is definitely (when will I learn to spell the word "definitely" right?....darn squiggly red line under the misspelled word) hitting the spot.
Here is the recipe for a Malibu Sunrise:
2 shots Malibu Rum
2 shots orange juice
1/4 shot grenadine
In a hurricane glass, add ice 3/4 of the way up. Add your Malibu rum and orange juice. Stir it like a madman so that you mix everything up real good. Pour your grenadine on top and enjoy!
