Pink Bikini Cocktails are a sweet and tropical tasting cocktail that is super easy to make and are perfect for your picnic or backyard gathering.
Malibu is an original coconut rum from the Caribbean, where the feeling of summer shines all year round. Malibu is a natural summer choice for every fun starter. Summer is when I feel the most happy, relaxed, and free, and we want to help everyone else experience the best summer of their lives. Summer simply wouldn’t be summer without Malibu Rum.
Creating a simple summer inspired cocktail with Malibu rum is so easy! We’re staying home and creating great summer inspired drinks and food for our close friends to enjoy! This summer, we bought a new charcoal grill and have hosted a few picnics with close family friends. I’m sure your friends will enjoy this delicious cocktail as much as we do! So, pull up a chair and sip on this as you soak up the summer sun around the pool!
How to make a Pink Bikini Cocktail:
Step 1: Pour raspberry lemonade into a large pouring pitcher.
Step 3: Add ice to cocktail glasses. Then add frozen scoops of orange sherbet on top of the ice. (Tip: You can pre-scoop the sherbet and place on a small sheet pan lined with parchment paper and place back in the freezer until you are ready to serve these cocktails. This will make it easier if you’re making a bunch of cocktails.)
Step 4: Pour the cocktail over the orange sherbet and ice.

A blend of pot still and grain whiskey. Triple distilled, remarkably smooth, and unmistakably Jameson from Ireland. Be sure and try Jameson in my Brown Sugar Mustard Grilled Chicken recipe! Jameson would be also be a great accompaniment to the Bruschetta!
To go along with this delicious cocktail, I thought a simple and delicious appetizer was in order. Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta is always a favorite and super simple to make. This appetizer or light lunch captures the essence of summer.
We love entertaining and creating festive backyard picnics. But, I also like to enjoy them and I don’t want to spend the entire time in the kitchen prepping food to serve. So simple finger foods like this delicious Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta are great options!
Cut up fresh heirloom tomatoes or cherry tomatoes and add to the bowl with the other ingredients. We grew several different varieties of heirloom tomatoes in our garden this year. And, fresh basil. So I just went out to the garden to harvest fresh ingredients.
