Malibu Coco-Cooler is so refreshing and tropical - Bring the island taste to you with this quick and easy cocktail recipe and celebrate Summer the tropical way !

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 !
