A Tropical Dream
4 shots out of 5
I got myself a bottle of Malibu Coconut Rum with Mango Liqueur at my local grocery store recently and tonight is the night to try it! I
like love Malibu Coconut Rum and I do like the flavor of mango, so I thought this would be a good buy!
I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5. I can
taste feel the alcohol in this cocktail! It is warming up my insides and making me smile. This cocktail definitely needs to be chilled....what I mean by that is, when your husband runs the dishwasher with your large cocktail shaker in it before you realize what's happening and you can't use it to make tonight's cocktail, you'll need to stir it up in a large glass with ice vigorously and then strain it into a tall cocktail glass filled 3/4 of the way up with ice. I am drinking and enjoying this cocktail......but it's getting a little on the "not chilled enough" side which isn't good.....hmmmm.....bottoms up I guess!
Here is the recipe for A Tropical Dream:
- 1 oz vanilla vodka
- 1 oz Malibu Rum with Mango
- 1 oz banana schnapps
- 1 oz coconut rum
- 2 oz orange juice
- 2 oz pineapple juice
I realized half way through making this cocktail that I should have halved the ingredients....oh well.
In a shaker add ice and all ingredients. Shake everything up real good. Strain it into a tall cocktail glass and enjoy!

Here's to always making sure that you have your cocktail shaker with you when it's cocktail time!
