I am not a big or regular drinker of alcohol, but when I do drink, I like to make sure I drink something that tastes nice, and I am not a big fan of beers or wines. One of my favorite drinks for a night out is Malibu.
Malibu is a white, Carribean rum and is quite a well known, leader in the Rum market. It usually comes in a distinctive white bottle with a palm tree and sunset image as their logo. The drink has quite a distinctive taste too, which is mostly coconut - if you do not like coconut, you will not like this drink! There is also almonds and mocha flavours, so not suitable for those allergic to nuts at all!!
The drink itself is a smooth liquid, which I think slips down the throat quite nicely, but if you drink it straight, it can be a bit of a shock if you are not used to this kind of flavour. It is more of a mixing drink and I have found most people tend to drink their Malibu with Coke, which is nice, but my favorite is Malibu mixed with Pineapple Juice. This makes for a beautiful flavour of the Carribean, but I do get drunk quite easily on them as it is so nice to drink, I just keep downing them!
Malibu Rum is 21%, which is 42 proof. So it is quite a strong drink, and I would advise to be careful how many of these you drink. I have been on the wrong end of a few too many of these, they really strong!!
If you are not a lover of the Coconut variety, there is also now other flavours to choose from in the Malibu range including Pineapple and Lime.
You can buy a bottle of Malibu in most supermarkets, off licenses and in some convience stores. The price does vary but a standard size bottle will cost you around £14. Please drink responsibly.
Summary: A nice drink, when drank with caution
