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.

I did notice a little typo where you say “This drink can me made by..”
Pretty sure you meant “be made”
Sorry, I’m just weird about spelling.
Thank you Chloe! Glad you caught that :)

Great post. I will be trying this tonight.
Heading to Myrtle Beach in a few weeks. We are going to try a few of the drinks. They sound good and I’ll bet they are as we sit on the balcony and listen to the waves.
Nice Drink … but as a Pro (20+years Bartender) i have to tell you that you layer carefully via the back of your barspoon … not directly on the cubes ;) :)
Thank you for the tip!!
Holly these are gorgeous! Love the way you made the garnish. We just got back from our vacation (not to brag, ha ha) and I loved watching the bartenders make these type of layered drinks. I’ll have to make two of these this weekend for my hubby and me so we can pretend we’re back on the beach.
