It looks like there are some delightful cocktails you can make with the ingredients you have on hand! Based on your list, here are a few recommendations:

  • Coconut Margarita (less sweet): You can make a slightly modified Coconut Margarita using your tequila and lime juice along with the Malibu as a substitute for the coconut liqueur if you enjoy a less sweet twist. This cocktail combines Tequila with the refreshing tartness of lime juice and the unique flavor of coconut, all beautifully balanced.
  • Tequila Mix: This cocktail is a great way to use your tequila and lime juice. While it traditionally calls for grenadine and Angostura Bitters, you can substitute simple syrup for the grenadine for a slightly different, but still delightful, sweetness.
  • Tequila Snowfall Sunrise: While this cocktail typically uses cranberry and orange juice, you can make a variation using your ingredients by incorporating orange juice along with the tequila. This drink will be refreshing with a nice balance of flavors from the citrus and tequila.
  • Tropical Sunset: Considering you have both Malibu (coconut rum) and potentially pineapple rum, you could concoct a similar drink using these ingredients. While the original recipe also uses vodka, you can use pineapple rum for an extra fruity twist. Add some orange juice and a dash of simple syrup in place of passion fruit syrup if you don't have any. This will give you a vibrant, fruity cocktail reminiscent of a beach getaway.

Each of these cocktails provides a different feel and experience, from the tropical notes of the Coconut Margarita to the vibrant and fruity aroma of the Tropical Sunset. Enjoy your mixology adventure!
