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.

At this past week’s Tales of the Cocktail, Kahlúa Coffee Liqueur hosted the daily coffee bar, complete with baristas and bartenders.

This week’s drink comes to us from Wilmington, NC, mixologist & author Joel Finsel. In his words, “One of my favorite summertime drink creations is the Lotus. It’s light, clean and refreshing. Pairs equally well with sushi (particularly spicy bits or anything at all dipped in savory soy sauce and wasabi) and anything char-grilled.”
Created at Molyvos in NYC, this Independence Day cocktail uses macerated strawberries, vodka, Cointreau and blue curacao. When all put together with a white-sugar rim, you have quite the 4th of July treat. Courtesy of Oval Vodka.
We are big fans of punch and this one created by mixologist Eric Castro did not disappoint. Made with HighlandPark 12-year-old single-malt scotch, yellow chartreuse, a hint of ginger, bitters, ginger beer, and fresh fruit the result is a wonderfully complex drink. We tried this at the recent StarChefs.com Rising Star Chef’s Review in San Francisco. For an event wrap up and more photos, check out Lick My Spoon.
This is a tall cool drink of summer in a glass. This combination of X-Rated Fusion Liqueur, watermelon and lemon juices and fresh basil is light and refreshing enough for a Sunday brunch, yet holds up on a warm summer night. Courtesy of X-Rated Fusion Liqueur.
