As we got used to, guys at Malibu Rum prepared yet another fantastic surprise for this drink’s fans, you would not guess it! One month before the new flavor will be released, we have the opportunity of choosing the newest addition in their aromas.

The contest is held on Malibu Rum’s Facebook page and anyone can choose between 3 great flavors: Citrus, Cranberry Cherry and Mint. Indeed, this should be a difficult choice, although I definitely prefer Mint aroma and would be glad to see it a winner. So all Malibu fans, go to Malibu Facebook Page, vote on of those three aromas and not only that you can decide the next addition but also you could win the $1,000 grand prize right before the New Year’s party or one of their daily prizes – clothes, accessories, surfboards and many other goodies anyone would love to have!

One word of advice though: you should be aged 21 or more! The next Malibu rum flavor will be revealed on 3rd January 2011, what other great way to kick-off the new year? May 2011 is the month this new drink will hit the shelves.

Kudos to these guys and their love for this marvellous drink’s fans! Leaving to vote now, haven’t you done this yet??

I recently received a great photo by email with one of this marvelous drink’s fan (thanks!) and just thought to add some more photos gathered from the Internet. These girls not only they are awesome but really deserve our kudos!

A friend shared with me some delicious Jamaican Rum Punch recipes and of course, when I see a drink containing any Malibu rum flavor it is a must to share it with my readers.

Here are two recipes for Jamaican Rum Punch, one is made from a little more ingredients and the second one would be a little easier to be made, so let’s see those below. Serving is for 4 persons, we like having Malibu drinks in our friends’ company.

It all starts with 1 cup of coconut rum, 4 cups Bacardi 151 rum, 2 cups dark rum (you choose the label), 10 cups each for orange and pineapple juice, 1 and ½ cup lime juice, 14 tablespoons grenadine syrup and lots of ice cubes.

Get a punch bowl, throw all the ingredients and mix its. You can use any type of glass for this punch, pour the mix over ice cubes. Some say it can be consumed like it is, others say it should be chilled for at least 1 hour in the fridge before serving, thought not using ice cubes. I usually drink it as it is, garnishing with some pineapple slices.

The second Jamaican Rum Punch recipe contains 4 cups water, 1 cup lime, 3 cups strawberry syrup and 2 cups white rum. Does not sound like the above one, and for sure does not taste as well. Follow the same pattern with mixing ingredients, pour over ice cubes, garnish with a lime slice and enjoy.

What can I say more, you just have to try the Godiva Chocolate Martini with coconut rum and you will be simply amazed of its taste. It was a surprise from my beloved girlfriend and of course I wanted to share it with you.

For 1 person, here is the recipe for Godiva chocolate Martini with coconut rum: ½ oz Godiva chocolate liqueur, ¼ Malibu coconut rum, ½ Godiva white chocolate liqueur, ½ oz crème de cacao, ½ oz Vodka and 1 oz half and half (milk and cream in equal parts).

Pour all the ingredients in a shaker, add ice, mix them and serve into a cold cocktail glass. Simply delicious! But what about Godiva chocolate Martini calories, you might ask? WHO CARES when it is so damn tasty???

Enjoy this Godiva and Malibu rum cocktail, it was a quick one but really wanted to share with you fast!

Mojito with Malibu recipe is a delicious Cuban cocktail recipe I always serve my friends with when we are on a cocktails’ day. It is not so difficult to create it, below I will write the recipe for 4 persons serving.

First, we need 4 oz Malibu coconut rum, 4 oz club soda, mint (16 leaves), 4 sugar tablespoons and lime. All will be served in a highball glass. Crush the mint leaves inside each four glasses with a fork, no need to do this a lot while the flavor is released quite fast. Second, add the lime juice (you must also prepare some lime wedges, for garnishing) and the sugar and mix the ingredients. Now comes the freezing part! Add ice, but do not fill the glass; add 1 oz Malibu coconut rum in each glass and mix again.

Pour the club soda, stir well with a straw, garnish with the lime wedges I told you above and use some mint leaves as well. If you would like to make it in the traditional way, use spearmint instead of mint, I think it’s not so hard to find in local herbs shops.

This would be a great cocktail to serve with your friends, exactly like Ernest Hemingway was thinking, while Mojito was his favorite drink and he is one of my favorite writers.

Of course different cultures made their own Mojito variation, for example Mexican Mojito uses tequila instead of rum, have not tried it yet but it definitely sounds interesting. Also, it would be great to replace the sugar with brown sugar syrup and make a Dirty Mojito, but for now we’ll stick with the traditional Mojito with Malibu rum recipe. Maybe later….
