The Coconut Rum Cocktail Magic
As the weather gets warmer, I crave for this refreshing Coconut Rum Cocktail that combines coconut rum, pineapple juice, orange juice and ice.
All of my favorite tropical flavors in one!
I also like to cut up fresh slices of pineapple and orange and stick it to the rim of the glass of my coconut rum cocktails, and pretend like I’m on a beach or by the pool.
There’s something about tropical, citrusy flavors that just do it for me, and that quick spike of rum seal the deal. The combination of pineapple, orange and coconut is one that is truly out-of-this-world delicious.
Yep, it’s pretty much a spiked fruit punch, thus sometimes called Coconut Rum Punch.
The simplicity of this lovely tropical coconut rum cocktail will blow your mind.
Only three ingredients, and three ingredient only. Before you know it, your Pineapple Orange Coconut Rum Cocktail dreams are coming true.
- Coconut rum – I have always used Malibu Coconut Rum (see picture below), but others work as well.
- Orange juice
- Pineapple juice
How to make Coconut Rum Cocktail
Make this delicious coconut rum cocktail in a jug, or just mix it together in a glass!
Here’s the basic rule of thumb when it comes to making coconut rum punch: Equal parts of orange juice and pineapple juice, and coconut rum to taste seal the deal. You usually need less coconut rum than you do orange juice/pineapple juice.
If you are making coconut rum cocktail in a jug, I usually do 4 cups of pineapple juice and orange juice each, add about 1-1 1/2 cups of coconut (taste and adjust accordingly), then add ice.
If you are making it in a glass, add 1/2 cup of pineapple juice and orange juice each, then add a splash of coconut rum.
Mix it all up, kick back, relax, and sip on this lovely drink and pretend you are on the beach.
I also highly recommend cutting up slices of oranges and pineapple, adding it to the rim of the glass, or throw it into the coconut rum cocktail itself.
I love biting into the juicy pieces of pineapples and oranges as I sip on this magical Cocktail Rum Cocktail.
There are so many ways to make this delicious drink! Here are other yummy ingredients to add to your coconut rum cocktail:

Frequently Asked Questions
– Grenadine is a type of syrup that is bright red in color which adds a nice color to it if you’d like.
– add club soda to give it extra fizziness
– add cherries or other fruits for decorations!
Absolutely! Make ahead and store it in the refrigerator to keep it chill until ready to serve. I would only add the ice when ready to serve.
Yes! It does not have the coconut flavor so if you still want the coconut flavor, consider adding some coconut cream to the mixture if you are using regular rum.
You can choose not to add ice and chill the orange juice, pineapple juice and coconut rum a few hours before mixing it together so that your cocktail will still be nice and cold. Not adding ice will make it less diluted as well – I can see some people preferring that!
Trust me when I say you are going to LOVE this.
