I love refreshing cocktails like mojitos and perfect aperol spritz… and of course this bay breeze cocktail! Not only is it easy to make, it’s deliciously refreshing and not too sweet! A taste of the tropics, this one makes me wish I was on vacation!
We love the coconut Malibu rum in this drink but you can certainly try out some other rum flavors too (or skip the rum and add a splash of coconut extract to make this non-alcoholic).
This pretty drink can be made by mixing the ingredients together or it can be layered! The key to layering a drink recipe is to check the sugar content on each ingredient you are adding. The higher the sugar content, the heavier it is!
To create a layered drink, start by filling your glass with ice. You will want very slowly pour each ingredient directly onto an ice cube. Start with the highest sugar content on the bottom, to the lowest sugar content on the top (in my case it was grenadine, pineapple juice, cranberry juice and then rum but this can vary by brand). If your cranberry juice and pineapple juice are close in sugar content, you can also use light cranberry juice.
