We love this chocolate rum cake, but how much better would it be with Malibu coconut rum?

We’ve got a long list of other cocktails on the rocks if you’re planning a gathering and want to have choices.

And for your guests who aren’t fans of rum, make them something from this list of drinks to mix with vodka or one of these Mexican Cocktails with Vodka.

What You Need to Make these Malibu Cocktails

For the most part, you will need Malibu Rum and fruit juices. There are obviously a lot of varieties of white rum to choose from, but when making tropical cocktails, we prefer Malibu.

By the way, if you don’t have a Sam’s Club membership, it’s a great place to pick up most of the ingredients as well as party foods, and right now there is a special for $20!! That’s 60% off, but don’t wait!

Tropical fruit garnishes like maraschino cherries and slices of pineapple are optional, but making a pretty cocktail adds a tropical vibe.

Make sure you have a good blender for making the frozen varieties. I did some research a while back and compiled a list of the best blenders for frozen drinks.

Serving a tasty cocktail in a Tall cocktail glass is the way we roll, but remember not to take them out to the pool area.

Grab some break resistant Hurricane glasses or even these cute little Luau plastic cups.

Let’s get to those Malibu Rum drinks for a mini tropical vacation!
