This is probably the easiest cocktail I have posted thus far. It takes 3 ingredients, and no wizardry is required! With the 4th of July coming up, I thought it would be a great idea to bring you some easy, pretty and light cocktails for an afternoon garden party, backyard barbecue, or even a shindig on your deck. It’s fruity and delicious with a kick without having your guests tipsy after a couple of these summery drinks! If you do like a bit more of a kick to it, add Bacardi Silver or Ciroc Coconut….



What you’ll need:

  • 1 part Malibu coconut rum
  • 2 parts pineapple juice
  • Grenadine
  • Masraschino cherries and pineapple chunks

Mix the Malibu rum with the pineapple juice and pour over ice into a highball glass or Mason jar. Very slowly, as close as possible to the side of the glass, add the Grenadine. Be sure to do this as instructed to achieve the layered two tone look. Use as much or as little Grenadine as desired, it does make the drink considerably more sweet. Garnish with Maraschino cherries and pineapple chunks, propped on a toothpick or straw.
