Happy Father’s Day to all the awesome Dads and Grand Dads out there ! In celebration of this day I decided to treat my husband (and myself!) to a Malibu Coco-Cooler.
Both my Dad, and my Father-in-Law have long since passed away. But it still feels as if they are with us in spirit, especially on special days like today, Father’s Day.
I think both of them would have approved of my choice of drink to spoil my husband today. Although neither of them were into Malibu, or any Rum that I can remember, they would have enjoyed this refreshing tropical drink.
We used to just call the Malibu Coco-Cooler, a Malibu and Coke, but have since learnt the proper name. I suppose if you leave out the Limes and Angostura Bitters, it is only a Malibu and Coke.
Malibu screams Summer to me and there are not many other drinks I find as tropical as Malibu.
Always makes me feel I am on some island far, far away from this crazy world we live in.
Pity I can only have one at a time, and then also a very weak drink, but that makes me appreciate the flavor so much more.
I like to use a straw and whilst sipping on the Coco-Cooler, use the straw to press into the Lime and thereby releasing even more of the bit of sourness that goes so wonderfully with the Malibu and the Coca-Cola.
The non-alcoholic version, which is my everyday drink really, is the John Lee Special – Coca-Cola with Lemon (or Lime!) and lots of ice !
