Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 Tablespoon of grenadine A Splash to make the bottom of the glass red

Garnish with:

  • 2 maraschino cherries
  • 1 slice of pineapple
  • 1/4 Cup Malibu Rum with Coconut Liqueur

Instructions

  • To make this yummy drink, simply put 3-4 ice cubes in the bottom of a glass.
  • Pour the pineapple juice and the rum over the ice.
  • Next, pour the grenadine slowly down one side of the glass (pouring too fast will mix the grenadine in and you won’t get the cool color separation)
  • I stuck 2 cherries and a pineapple chunk on a toothpick for a garnish.
  • Enjoy your drinks immediately.
  • Please remember to drink responsibly and kick back and relax!
