An enticing mix of coconut rum and passion fruit liqueur provides a sweet and fruity base, while the tartness of lime juice balances the sweetness with a zesty kick. The inclusion of orange and grapefruit juices further enriches the cocktail with a refreshing citrus complexity, and the grenadine imparts a lovely ruby hue and a hint of vanilla-like sweetness. Served in a cocktail glass, the Lambada is a celebration of bold, summery flavors that are sure to transport imbibers to sun-drenched beaches with every sip.
