Caribou Lou

Primary alcohol: Bacardi 151 and Malibu Coconut Rum

My experience with this drink is like 151 Rum, pineapple juice, and Malibu — Caribou can make you feel numb. This drink, made famous by TechN9ne, is the perfect drink for a mid-finals break or to celebrate the end of the week’s torments. Feel free to express absurd opinions while drinking this classy beverage, because it’s clear you mean business with a Caribou Lou in hand.

Taste: The pineapple is very heavy, so there is a wall of sweetness before the undertones of coconut from the Malibu and delicious rum from the Bacardi. Following a bartender’s recipe, the pineapple will be denser, but following Tech’s recipe, the rum flavors will stand out much more.

Appearance: A pale gold with a deeper shade at the bottom, where the heavier 151 sits, and lighter at the top with the Malibu and pineapple juice. Always served with ice, not always served in a glass.

Advice: Not a good drink for the afternoon or morning; definitely to be used in getting a wild night started or introducing an abrupt end to it. It’s the ultimate party favor.
