Frozen Malibu Sunshine

"We wanted to make a frozen drink to celebrate our first warm weekend of the summer (and unwind after doing lots of yardwork!). We had several cans of frozen orange juice concentrate in the freezer, and so this is what we came up with. Makes 2 large hurricane glassfuls, or 4 smaller drinks."

  1. This was a very tasty cocktail, and one of those drinks that one is just not enough. I garnished ours with a skewer of cherries (didn't have any oranges), and it was just the thing to cool us a bit from the 100+ weather we're experiencing. The coconut rum really adds that defining tropical touch without overpowering all the other ingredients. It surely will be made in my home on a regular basis. Made for 2009 Comfort Cafe's "Beach Bash".


My husband and I married straight out of college in July of 1992. I work as the Assistant Manager at a wine shop which allows me to drink on the job! (OK, not that much, but it's still a fun job...) Besides helping customers choose wine they will like (and also help with food and wine pairings for their menus), I also get to help with the catering end of the business, so I get to spend a fair amount of time in the kitchen making fun appetizers and beautiful food displays. I also work part-time at the fromagerie next door. So yeah - that means I eat on the job, too. :^D We live on several peaceful wooded acres on a cute little river in rural NE Wisconsin, with a cranky old-lady Burmese and whatever stray outdoor cats that have decided to adopt us on any given day. The cute puppy in the picture is Jake, our Elhew-bred English Pointer that we brought home on Easter weekend 2007. I've also got 2 painted turtles named Dennis and Fuzz, and a bunch of fish (koi and goldfish, along with the guppies & swordtails in the turtle tank). I USUALLY eat and cook healthy, but I rarely pass up dessert, either. I do not eat red meat, and try to limit other animal products, too. I love to bake, although I seem to collect a lot of scone and biscotti recipes which I NEVER get around to making. I bake and eat A LOT of cookies and muffins... I almost always reduce the sugar by 1/4 and use whole wheat pastry flour for at least part of the flour. Those two changes do so much to make recipes healthier without compromising taste. I try to reduce fat whenever I can, too, but while I want to eat healthy, I still want to ENJOY what I eat!!! I seem to give a lot of 4 and 5 star reviews here - I seem to have a pretty good sense of what I like by looking at a recipe before I try it. Thank you to anyone that tries my recipes in return, or photographs them.
