Add Malibu Rum

Slowly pour the cranberry juice into the glass or over the back of a spoon to create a layered look. While a spoon is not critical, pouring slowly is!

Recipe Tip

Why pour the cranberry juice slowly? Doing so helps prevent the mixing of the juice colors creating that beautiful layered look! See more details about how to pour a Malibu Bay Breeze here.

A Note About Juice Choices

In addition to pouring the juices slowly to create a layered look, the sugar content of the juice is also very important!

  • The juice with the most sugar should be poured first as it will settle at the bottom of the cup.
  • The juice with the less sugar content will float on top of the heavier juice as long as it’s not stirred. You can most definitely opt. for a low-sugar cranberry juice to cut back on calories and sugar!
