Very little is known about this drink and aside from a handful of publications, there is little evidence that this is even a real drink. However, in it’s time, this drink was very popular. Here is an early printing of this drink:

There is not much contradicting evidence regarding this drinks ingredients. Nearly all literature suggest that it is a Malibu and Pineapple with Blue Curacao, which would make sense.

This drink dates between 1988 – 1991 and contained at least as of then:
