Thirsty Thursday - Lava Flow

   Dion Lee dress, BCBGMAXAZRIA sandals, Of Two Minds pants

After coming home from back-to-back Coachella and Puerto Vallarta trips I'm officially having vacation withdrawals. How should I ease my pain back into reality? A classic tropical cocktail, of course! This my friends is where I bring to you the Lava Flow, a sugary blended drink that is just as pretty as it is pool worthy. One warning though: the sugar content is high so be careful not to overdo them or you may awake feeling like you've been caught in a hurricane;)

Ingredients (for 1 serving):
  • 1 oz light rum
  • 1 oz Malibu coconut rum
  • 2 oz strawberries
  • 1 banana
  • 2 oz pineapple juice
  • 2 oz coconut cream

Directions:
Blend banana, coconut cream, and pineapple juice in a blender and set aside. In the bottom of a hurricane glass, stir together both rums and strawberries. 

Pour the blended mix slowly into the glass and presto! Watch the strawberry/rum mix flow up the sides of the glass.
