My Favourite Cocktail, 7Up with Malibu (Caribbean White Rum with Coconut)

Rum is made from sugarcane juice or it’s by product, the molasses through the process of fermentation and distillation. There are two types of rum, white and dark. White rum is normally used in cocktails and dark rum is usually used for cooking. It is believed that fermented drinks made from sugarcane originated from either China or India. Early South East Asians settlers (including in Malaysia) produced rum from molasses. Rum is a popular drink in the Caribbean and most of the world supply of rum is produced around here.

Although, I prefer whisky on the rock or red wine but occasionally I would go for my favourite Malibu with 7 Up cocktail. Anyway, I have cut down drinking alcohol drinks to almost zero nowadays but on and off it is rather relaxing to have a shot or two. I got this bottle of Malibu, Caribbean White Rum with coconut while holidaying in Tioman Island quite sometime ago. I bought if from the duty free shop in the island. It blends well with fruit juices such as orange, pineapple or grapefruit but I prefer to mix it with 7up. I just love the lemon and coconut taste mixture of Malibu with 7up. Pop in some ice into the cocktail and ‘Cheers’! So, what is your favourite drink?

I don't drink much. For alcoholic drinks, I prefer red wine. For soft drinks, it's Coke though I hardly drink it unless during a party or something.

I guess I just like to drink iced milo : )

Pete said...

Foongpc : Looks like milo is quite a favourite drink for Malaysians. I like it too. I remember, I used to make ice cubes from milo! Yummy!
