The Caribou Lou is a simple, rum- and pineapple-based cocktail that was popularized by Tech-N9ne’s 2006 single “Caribou Lou.” The lyrics outline the recipe (“151 rum / Pineapple juice and Malibu / Caribou get them all numb”), and while it’s not entirely clear where the drink gets its name, it nonetheless became popular seemingly overnight.
- 1.5 oz Bacardi 151
- 1 oz Rum (preferably coconut Rum)
- 5 oz Fresh Pineapple Juice
- Garnish: Pineapple Wedge
Rim the edge of your highball glass using coconut flakes, set aside. Then in a shaker with ice, combine 151, rum (preferably coconut Rum), and Pineapple Juice and shake well. Strain mix into the rimmed highball glass and garnish with a pineapple wedge.
