Remember, substituting the alcohol might also alter the overall alcohol content of the cocktail.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve a Malibu Coconut Milkshake?

The best way to serve a Malibu Coconut Milkshake is cold, preferably in a chilled cocktail glass. You can further enhance the serving presentation by garnishing with a sprinkle of grated coconut or a small umbrella for a tropical feel. Make sure the drink is well mixed before serving to ensure the flavors are evenly distributed.

NON_ALCOHOLIC_VARIATIONS

Is there a non-alcoholic version of the Malibu Coconut Milkshake?

Yes, to create a non-alcoholic version of the Malibu Coconut Milkshake, simply omit the coconut rum and replace it with coconut water or additional milk to compensate for the liquid volume. You can also add coconut extract to enhance the coconut flavor without adding alcohol, making it suitable for all ages and occasions.
