Feel the coolness at the beach

When I’am at the beach and the sand is hot, some of the best thing i can wait for is the breeze. But after a few minutes of waiting, I see one bar and do you know what I’am thinking about … Yes “I need a drink”, but not just a drink. I want some special drinks to feel the coolness in this hot day on the beach.
Let me show you some cocktails that I like …

Recipe:
2 oz Malibu® coconut rum
fill with orange juice
1 oz grenadine syrup
Pour malibu rum in a highball glass, and top with orange juice. Stir. Add grenadine by tilting glass and pouring grenadine down side. (by flipping the bottle vertically very quickly). The grenadine should go straight to the bottom and then rise up slowly through the drink. Enjoy!
