    Perfect for our rum bucket!

    The best thing to ever add to a Diet Coke. A whole lime squeezed into one, makes them so irresistible. Never had a bad hangover from them either. Absolutely my favorite drink for at home, the bar or even on a plane! 10/10.



Malibu Original Caribbean Rum is a classic spirit that goes well with a multitude of different mixers — from pineapple juice, lime, grapefruit, orange juice, and cranberry juice to Coke, ginger ale, and lemon-lime soda. For an easy cocktail, try mixing Malibu and ginger ale together with ice and squeezing a lime into it — the result is a subtle gingery, tropical drink that’s not too far off from a Dark and Stormy. Because Malibu is on the low side of things in terms of alcohol, with only 21% ABV, it’s a great substitute for straight rum if you’re trying to make a lighter drink.
Malibu Original Caribbean “Rum” is, in fact, not a rum — it’s actually a coconut-flavored liqueur since there is added sugar in the drink and the alcohol level is just 21% ABV. Note that both liquors like rum and liqueurs have a wide range of ABV ratings. The majority of liquor falls between 40% to 55% ABV, while liqueurs usually range from 15% to 30% ABV, or roughly half that of liquors.
Malibu is neither strong nor technically “rum” — in fact, it’s correctly classified as a coconut-flavored liqueur. This is because, while rum must have an alcohol content of 40% or higher, Malibu has a much gentler ABV rating of 21%. The other reason it’s not rum is because Malibu contains added sugar, which is forbidden in the classification of rum but is essential to giving Malibu its characteristic sweetness.
Malibu Original Caribbean Rum may not seem like a particularly fancy gift, but it delivers a jolt of tropical happiness. It is a great addition to summer parties — think of it as a casual gift for loved ones and friends. Malibu is also a great addition to the shelf of any amateur mixologist. So, if you know someone who prides themselves on making a variety of cocktails, they’ll probably appreciate a good bottle of Malibu Original. This liqueur is always reliable and has an exquisite, uplifting flavor.
