How to Make Caribou Lou

A Caribou Lou is a strong and delicious rum-based cocktail that has gained fame due to Kansas City-based rapper Tech N9ne, who dedicated his famous song “Caribou Lou … 151 rum, pineapple juice, and Malibu, caribou get them all numb… Caribou Lou” to this exotic drink. This refreshing beverage is created by mixing pineapple juice with 151-proof rum and coconut-flavoured rum.

The Caribou Lou drink has a tropical flavour that not only helps you beat the heat but also revitalises your body within minutes. However, it is an extremely potent drink, and it is best if it is consumed cautiously.
