Malibu Black sample provided by brand representatives. All photos, recipe and opinions are my own unless otherwise stated.
Malibu Black is bold Caribbean rum with coconut liqueur. It is bottled at 35% alcohol by volume (70 proof). The recipe on the back of the bottle is the Malibu Storm: 1 ounce Malibu Black and 2 ounces Cola served in a tall glass over ice with lime wedge garnish.
Malibu Black Tasting Notes
Aroma: A bit waxy on the nose with light coconut.
Taste: There is a small amount of burn on the tongue when tasted neat. Hints of lime zest. A tiny amount of dark spirit, wood-like taste. Light sweetness. Sharp in the final taste. Warms the back of the throat.
Coconut Lime Frost Recipe
This is such a refreshing frozen drink. Coconut flavor is light and the drink is loaded with citrusy lime flavor. It kind of reminds me of the limeade bars from ice cream trucks. I loved those as a kid. There is quite a bit of lime zing to balance out the simple syrup. Don’t skimp on the lime zest with this one. It adds vibrant, fresh aroma to the drink.
