Lava Flow Cocktail

This Lava Flow Cocktail is a super fun and easy blended cocktail that’s guaranteed to beat the heat this summer!

As a previous bartender, I must admit that I like the classic cocktails the best. Give me a good gin and tonic or a well-balanced manhattan and I’m good to go. But, occasionally, I’ll try something new that I really like! That’s definitely the case with these fun blended Lava Flow Cocktails.

There are two different mixes that you need to make for these: One is the strawberry base (where the rum is) and then a thick coconut mixture that slowly will sink to the bottom of the glass. It’s a cool visual effect and also the mix of flavors is really delicious!

To start out, add some strawberries, ice, and light rum to a blender. Blend that until it’s nice and smooth.

Divide that between two glasses with some fresh ice. Rinse out the blender and then add the banana, pineapple juice, and coconut milk.

This mixture is nice and thick and also creamy which pairs perfectly with the sharp strawberry base.

When you’re ready to serve them, pour the coconut mixture down one side of the glass and it’ll slowly sink to the bottom, creating a fun “lava” effect.

I recommend drinking these with a straw so you can get a little of both mixtures in each sip. YUM!
