How To Make The Stormfront Cocktail

Tasting Notes: The body of a tequila and coconut with hints of sweet vanilla along side a touch of citrus. As you drink and sip upon the dark rum yet a new flavor comes into play, sweet dark rum! Malibu Red plays out in full form with yet more complexities!

Here comes our own Malibu Red Cocktail creation! A collaboration of intelligent cocktail drinkers went into the creation of the Stormfront cocktail designed specifically around Malibu Red. This cocktail brings everything to the table from sexy look to flavorful taste. Our goal with this recipe design was to highlight the flavor of Malibu Red while bringing secondary complex flavors from the dry flavor of the cranberry juice, a slightly sweet vanilla, a bit of citrus with a topping that reminds us of a polynesian drink like the Mai Tai.

Experience Malibu Red which brings tequila and coconut together with a cocktail recipe that doesn’t mask the flavors of Red.


  • 2 1/2 oz. Malibu Red
  • 3 oz. Cranberry Juice
  • 1/2 oz. Blue Curacao
  • 1/4 oz. Vanilla Schnapps
  • 1/2 oz. Dark Rum.

    I found another Malibu Red drink recipe.
    It’s called Red Hot Explosion
    Ingredients: 1 oz. Malibu Red
    2 oz. orange juice
    1 oz. grenadine
    1 orange wedge/zest

    No instructions on how to mix it. It’s served in a high ball glass on the rocks.

    As for the question of the day…. I can’t think of a reason to buy Malibu Red, maybe to make this great lookin coktail, but I would probably try to replicate it with reg cocnut rum and tequila. I think the red is just a marketing gimmick, like so many of the “new” spirits. I am a bourbon drinker and I like what some of the distilleries are doing with small batch recipes and agings and re=aging with different barrels and stuff like that. Not a big fan of the flavered bourbons. Vodkas, rums? sure, I really like some of the flavors and the way they lend themselves to a mix. But mixing rum with tequila seems contrived, just another way to tap another market. Not going for it.

      Also, our audience might be a bit too “smart” to go for a lot of the marketing gimmicks, since we’ve done so many cocktails with so many spirits most just ask “why?” because they can make the same thing with tequila and coconut rum, even olmeca directly.

      But, for the lazy man that doesn’t want to bust out a bottle of good silver tequila ($25+) and a bottle of coconut rum ($10-15), you can get Red for a good price. For instance, Hornitos + Malibu (normal) would cost me $35. I can get a bottle of red for $15 so… there is a cost savings technically.
