Yesterday we told you about our experiences with coconut shampoo rum and the surprisingly similar Malibu Red, a blend of coconut rum and tequila. Dedicated tasters that we are, we tried the drink in many forms: neat, on the rocks, mixed with coke, and in the many cocktails posted on malibu-rum.com. Some of them were horrific (Malibu Red and tabasco?!), but many were actually pretty good. The Red Hot Explosion was our favorite. Combining coconut, orange and grenadine, it reminded us of a visit to the tropics.
1 part Malibu red (50ml)
2 parts orange juice (100ml)
1 splash of grenadine (10-20ml)
1 orange wedge
