Spring break just got better!

Spring break is to cocktails like sorority girls are to Malibu and pineapple juice. They just go together and no one is trying to change that -- except maybe Malibu itself. Their newest creation steps the lady-friendly liquor up a notch with the addition of tequila -- and we couldn’t be more thrilled.

Spring break just got better!

Spring break is to cocktails like sorority girls are to Malibu and pineapple juice. They just go together and no one is trying to change that -- except maybe Malibu itself. Their newest creation steps the lady-friendly liquor up a notch with the addition of tequila -- and we couldn't be more thrilled.

Malibu has joined forces with rapper Ne-Yo to give the classic coconut-flavored liquor a facelift, and any facelift that involves tequila instead of permanently surprised looking eye brows is a facelift we support. We were once torn between whether to drink tequila or a refreshing and festive coconut beverage during our beach vacation, but no more. Spring break is filled with enough decisions like whether or not to use sunscreen, whether or not to enter that wet T-shirt contest or whether or not to take that last shot off your best friend's body. We don't need to think on spring break; we just need to drink. Thank you Malibu for making our lives easier. Here are a few cocktails to get you celebrating appropriately whether you are on the beach or simply on your patio.
