This is my version of a VERY popular specialty drink I made at two different places in New Orleans. Both drinks were made in restaurants on Decatur St. This is my version. Very refreshing, and not as sweet as it sounds.
- 1 1⁄2 ounces Malibu rum
- 1 ounce Midori melon liqueur
- 2 1⁄2 ounces pineapple juice
- 1 ounce orange juice
- 1 orange slice
- 1 maraschino cherry
- Fill a hurricane or sour glass with ice and add rum, Midori, pineapple and orange juice.
- Mix with a cocktail stirrer and garnish with orange slice and cherry.
It was delicious but a bit too sweet for my taste. Maybe I would reduce the amount of Malibu to 1 ounce. Thanks Angela :) Made for beverage tag.
Sorry Angela, I didn't really love this, it was nice but didn't taste as I thought it would. For me I think equal amounts of midori & malibu as well as pineapple & orange juice would be better. It was fruity but had a strange aftertaste on the palette. Great to try though so thanks for posting!
The perfect refresher for a summer's day! Just the right balance of fruit juices with the coconut rum and melon. I can see this may easily become a favorite : ) Thanks so much Angela Dawn!
