This week’s drink is a classic tropical cocktail that I first had in Hawaii many years ago. An island favorite for sitting in the sun, the lava flow is a combination of fresh strawberry purée, coconut, pineapple juice and rum (for flavor). You can make the strawberry purée ahead of time and use left overs on pancakes or ice cream.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ oz light rum
  • 2 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz cream of coconut
  • ½ banana
  • ¼ cup strawberry purée*
  • ½ cup crushed ice

Instructions

Combine all ingredients in an electric blender with the a cup ice. Blend 20–30 seconds. Pour strawberry purée into a hurricane or collins glass. Follow with the blended mixture. This creates the flow. Garnish with a pineapple wedge and paper umbrella (of course!)
