    It sounds revolting and more than a little precieuse. But, I almost never touch rum. The whole thing reminds me of the Firefly vodka-and sweet-tea horror.

      not the peach but on a hot day the coconut with a splash of pineapple juice would be good. vacation in a glass

        I'm skeptical . . . but I'd give it a try. Its a better idea than marshmallow vodka if you ask me . . . but still makes me cringe just a little

            I know sometime soon I'm going to be at an event and will end up trying this. But just the idea makes me sad.

              Eeeeeeuuuw. Regular Malibu Rum is bad enough, but as the rum version of a wine cooler? Ugh. Another ploy to grab bucks from the younger, not-yet-used-to-liquor set.

              The coconut water version is just a ploy, period.
