There Are Countless Ways to Celebrate National Rum Day With Malibu® Rum

Everyday is a great day to enjoy a refreshing cocktail, but the best day to pour up a rum-based drink is on August 16th – National Rum Day! Join us as we celebrate this national holiday by crafting all new cocktails made with the world’s best-selling coconut flavored Caribbean rum.

Malibu® Original tastes just like sunshine in a bottle. The smooth, fresh flavor of Malibu® pairs perfectly in citrusy mixed drinks and cool blended summer cocktails. You may be surprised to find out how versatile rum can truly be. That’s why we put our own flavorful spin on a few classic cocktail recipes.

Pass around a tray of Poolside Peach Bellinis at your next backyard bash! This is a great drink for any outdoor get-together because it is sophisticated and playful all at the same time. Your friends will love this semi-sweet drink that tastes just like a Peach Ring, especially because there’s something about sipping from a champagne flute that makes you feel extra fancy.

We even enhanced the classic Paloma and White Russian to embody the delightful taste of Malibu® Original. There’s an infinite array of ways to partake in National Rum Day. Let us know how you plan to celebrate this summer!
