Meanwhile, take a cocktail shaker and place 1 cup of ice cubes in it. Try not to use too much ice as this can make your cocktail mixture watery.
Now, pour 1 oz of Midori Melon Liqueur, 2 oz of coconut rum, 1 oz light rum, 1 dash of sweet-sour mix, and ½ oz spiced rum into the cocktail shaker. If you want to keep your cocktail light then reduce the amount of alcohol by limiting the rum in your recipe. This will not have a dramatic impact to the overall taste or flavour of this cocktail recipe.
Seal the cocktail shaker properly and shake it vigorously for 15 to 20 seconds until all the ingredients mix completely. While shaking you will want a nice smooth texture so be sure to check the consistency of the mixture repeatedly.
Unseal the shaker and gently strain the Full Moon Fever Cocktail into the pre-chilled highball glass. Remember it is up to you as to how you want to serve or garnish this delightful cocktail.
Top the drink with fresh pineapple juice and garnish it with a lemon or pineapple slice. You can garnish your cocktail with whatever you feel like as it is up to your own personal taste.
