Here we are folks, Monday AGAIN. Another weekend has passed by all too quickly and another week looms long on the horizon. Right now you are probably saying to yourself, Monday mornings are bad enough without this chick bringing me down. What gives?
I give! I give you this!
That’s right – I am turning Mondays around! Okay, well maybe just this Monday but it’s a start, right?
One day a few weeks ago, while perusing Malibu Rum’s Facebook page, I discovered the existence of Malibu Sundae. Chocolate ice cream, coconut, rum… This sounded SO GOOD that I had to have it! I hit my usual liquor store which has a huge selection of pretty much everything. They did not have this.
Neither did any of the other liquor stores within a 15 mile radius of my house. I know this because I called them all.
“Hi! I was calling to find out if you carry Malibu Sundae?”
“Sundae like ice cream sundae.”
“Oh, no, we don’t have that.”
I finally found it on the website for a nearby liquor store. They didn’t have it in-store but I could special order it through their site.
And then it arrived. And it was good.
It’s delicious by itself, straight out of the bottle. It’s awesome mixed with Baileys Caramel and half & half. It’s AMAZING in my Tropical Sundae Cocktail!
Tropical Sundae Cocktail
2 oz Malibu Sundae
1 oz Creme de Banana
2 oz half & half
1 oz pineapple juice
1 banana cut into chunks
chocolate syrup, 1 maraschino cherry, 1 pineapple chunk for garnish (optional)
Combine all ingredients except the garnish ingredients in a blender and blend. Swirl chocolate syrup inside the glass, pour and enjoy! Adding a hokey cocktail umbrella ups the cheer factor – especially helpful after another soul-crushing Monday at work.
