Coconut Pie

Day 215



Coconut Pie
4 shots out of 5


Happy Monday!  Time for a cocktail.  Another school week is underway and before I know it, we will be coming to the end of another school year.  OK, so maybe that was a little fast forwarded......but I swear that's how this year has been going.  

I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5.  Kahlua, welcome back!  I haven't had a cocktail with Kahlua in it in quite a long while.  I got tonight's recipe here.  Never in all of my wildest dreams would I have thought of mixing Malibu rum with Kahlua.  I have to say the two of them together with the milk is pretty darn good!  The only thing I would have changed would be to half the milk and use cream for that last ounce instead.  One way or the other this is a nice cocktail with a great flavor.  I can taste the Kahlua in this cocktail the most, but it's not an overwhelming taste, which is nice.

Here is the recipe for a Coconut Pie:

  • 1 oz Malibu rum
  • 1 oz Kahlua
  • 2 oz milk
In a short cocktail glass, fill with ice and add all of the ingredients above.  Stir it up really well so that the Kahlua mixes in with the other two ingredients.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to rediscovering Kahlua!

    1. That's exactly what I was thinking, your half & half equals my milk & cream! A warm version of this cocktail sounds delicious!!

    1. THAT is a good question! If I make this again, I might stray away from the recipe I found and try it with coconut milk instead. Cheers!
