Summer Sunset Cocktail Ingredients
Lemon rind for garnish (optional)
Black pokadot straw (optional but so fun!) I used these.
High Ball Glasses
About the Ingredients
Malibu Rum is a Caribean rum with a sweet coconut flavoring; giving a tropical flavor
Pineapple Juice adds to the tropical flavors and is bright yellow in color!
Grapefruit juice is of course a citrus fruit that provides a mildly sweet flavor with a pink tint; just like a breath taking summer sunset
Lemon Juice adds a touch of citrus and lightens up some of the harsher alcohol tastes. Plus the Lemon Rind adds the finishing touch of yellow to the summer sky at sunset
Summer Sunset Cocktail Recipe (2 drinks)
1)Add ice to High Ball Glass
2)Add 2 oz Malibu Rum, 2 oz Pineapple Juce, 4 oz Grapefruit Juice and 1 oz Lemon Juice
3)Stir until well mixed.
4)Add a Lemon Rind Ring to the top of the glass for garnish.
To create a Lemon Rind Ring, cut a Lemon round from a whole lemon. Carefully cut a slit in the round and the inside fleshy fruit away from the rind. Wrap the rind aound your finger or a swizzle stick and hold for a few seconds. The rind will hold the same of what you wrap it around.
