I agree with you there, the color just keeps getting stranger the more you mix into the Midori lol
I have never heard of nor have I tried Banana or passionfruit Malibu, WOW certainly sounds different, I wish we had it here, I have only bought and tried the Coconut Malibu Rum, thats why I love Pina-Colada so much, I wonder where I could get the others you mentioned here where I live, I will have to suss it out at the local. Do you still taste the Coconut in the Malibu or is it just the Banana and Passionfruit taste, I would really love to try that, Thanks for the info, Is the colour still clear, like in the coconut, or is it a more yellow or orange colour???

SpiritWolf, I don't think we can get most of those drinks here yet. Flavoured vodkas are about our limit. Maybe one day!!

I don't mind an Illusion from time to time. It was one of those cocktails that came out when Midori first hit and every bar would have a Midori shaker.

My ex used to really enjoy midori and lemonade but he had a really sweet tooth.

Apparently one year in Cairo someone served some red wine enhanced by cloves---the flavor and reactions were so swift and universal that it became a joke to "gift" someone with a similar bottle and this same bottle was passed around much like an American fruit cake for many, many years. It became a priviledge (sp?) to be gifted with the bottle. I will take the original newbies' assertions that it was worse than listerine after several drinks.

There are three of the Malibu flavors.. Banana, Passion Fruit, and Mango as well as the regular Malibu. They are delish and are great for making fun drinks. I haven't found Banana in Quebec so far as I know from my experience it's only available in Ontario (could be in the US too, but I don't know).

I'll have to look up an Illusion.

Red wine and cloves? Blech!!

We have the original and banana, I have not seen the passion fruit or mango yet, but DW would go nuts over the mango!

Yes Bilby, The Illusion, I love them and the Splice, thats got Midori,Pineapple juice and Malibu in it, I buy them from time to time at our local Bottle shop.
I was first introduced to Midori with lemonade as well, I love it, but as you said, very sweet.

Oh yeah. I forgot about the Splice! Prefer my Splice with just bacardi instead of the malibu. Not a huge fan of coconut outside of a curry!
