Our melonball recipe

1 oz coconut rum
1 oz melon liqueur
2 oz unsweetened pineapple juice (vary amount to taste)

Pour over ice cubes in rocks glass.

... We don't like Malibu, as it's not strong enough; presently we have Bacardi Coconut, which works well. Our recipe book calls for regular vodka in place of the rum and 3 oz orange juice, but our version is much more "tropical" (and tastes better). This is the drink that makes summer a happy time.


  1. I frequently make this with even parts of each, and have always heard it called an Alien Secretion, due no doubt to the color.

    I also add an even part of vodka for a bit of extra kick :)

  2. Y'know, I'm kinda glad Google did not enlighten me as to just what an Allen secretion is. I might've remembered it next time I sat down to drink one of these.

    I used to add some vodka when making it w/ Malibu, but the full-strength rum works for me. It's not like you can drink just one!
