A few weekends ago, Rachel and I made a trip to Crescent Beach to try and add some color to our tourist like complexions. On the way we stopped to pick up a little something to help us soak up the rays. Rachel’s suggestion: Malibu and Coke. Say what you will about it being a girl’s drink, but nothing says let’s get crunk on the beach, shake what our momma gave us and show some skin to win like a little Malibu and Coke.
Between the suntan lotion-like smell and smooth white bottle, it might as well be the first thing you pack before heading off to the beach. It’s been a few spring breaks since I had last picked up a bottle of Malibu, but let’s just say we picked up right where things left off—minus the loose women and jail time (just kidding…sorta). I mixed in a little Coke with my full glass of Malibu and enjoyed what Rachel calls “the taste of the beach…if the beach tasted delicious.”
The best thing about Malibu is it’s extreme mixability. Even if you absolutely hate the taste of anything alcoholic, you could find yourself drinking Malibu straight—mix in some Coke and you wouldn’t even know you were getting crunk. That’s the good news. The bad news is you can also find yourself completely hammered, gawking at females on the beach until your girlfriend (also wasted) decides she wants to go talk to the “hot” guys at the pool to see if they’ll appreciate her.
My point—keep track of how much you’re drinking as you’re likely to go through a bottle pretty quickly. I’d recommend if you’re a heavy drinker switch over to something a little stronger and save the Malibu for the girls and me.
