How to Make Caribou Lou

By Woodrow Savage

Caribou lou is a strong and delicious rum-based cocktail. It contains pineapple juice, 151-proof rum and coconut-flavored rum. The drink originated in Kansas City, Missouri and was made famous by the Kansas City-based rapper Tech N9ne, who wrote a song that shares its name with the cocktail. Caribou lou has a tropical flavor from the mixture of the pineapple and coconut flavors, and people who drink the beverage should not underestimate its potency.
