My husband says that when he was growing up his dad always had a bottle of Malibu rum on his boat.  Now, we always have a bottle of the classic coconut-flavored rum in our cabinet.  I love the tropical taste and always find it amusing that it's imported...from Canada.

One of my favorite drinks involves Malibu mixed with my one of my favorite sodas...Diet Mountain Dew.  Of course we call the combo, Malidew.  The tropical coconut taste pairs really well with the lemon-lime soda.  I'm sure you could use the regular non-diet version of Mountain Dew, but we usually only buy diet soda.

1 can Diet Mountain Dew
2 ounces Malibu

Pour the Malibu in a tall glass.  Pour the Diet Mountain Dew over it, and enjoy.

This drink always makes me happy, and I figure the alcohol cancels out the caffeine.  At least, that's how I justify drinking Mountain Dew late at night.

I've tried using different flavors of Malibu (mango, pineapple, etc), but coconut is definitely my favorite.

Happy eating, er, drinking!
