What Is The Best Coconut Rum?

Malibu Rum is without a doubt the most popular coconut-flavored rum in the world.

There are other options on the market, like Bacardi Coconut Rum or Captain Morgan Coconut Rum, but nothing comes close to Malibu for the quality and price.

Technically speaking, Malibu is actually a liqueur instead of a rum because it’s only 21% ABV. It’s perfect for easy cocktails because it adds a ton of flavor and goes well with SO many different mixers.

What To Mix With Coconut Rum like Malibu

Like I said, coconut rum mixes fantastically well with all types of juices, sodas, and even other spirits. Some popular mixers that go with coconut rum are:

  • Cola
  • Tropical Fruit Juices
  • Lemon Lime Soda
  • Puréed Fruit
  • Pre-made Daiquiri or Margarita Mix
  • Frozen Fruit Concentrate
  • Soda Water
  • Lemonade (any flavor)
  • RumChata
  • Jello (here are the 10 best jello shots made with Malibu!)

This is just to name a few. Read on for more mixer ideas and specific recipes you can make with coconut rum and only one other ingredient!
