{ island mimosa }

Memorial Day weekend is the [un]official launch of the summer season. What better way to usher in all those glorious months of sunshine and fun than with a morning cocktail worthy of a tropical paradise? As you sip, close your eyes and listen for the steel drums, waves, and seagulls.

It just looks like a sunrise at the beach, doesn't it?

 
Island Mimosa
Ingredients
2 parts champagne or sparkling wine
1 part pineapple juice
1 part Malibu Coconut Rum
dash of Grenadine
frozen pineapple chunks, to garnish and keep drink chilled (optional)

Process
Fill a champagne flute 1/2 way with champagne or sparkling wine. Add pineapple juice and rum. Top with a dash of grenadine. Drop in 2-3 pineapple chunks to keep drink chilled.

Don't worry. Be happy.

I am going to have to try this! I love champagne and a couple of years ago I visited the Malibu production site in Barbados. I pend a day drinking cocktails on the Malibu beach and I confess I have been a Malibu fan ever since! Cheers for the post!
