Halloween is this Monday so I wanted to make a fun Halloween cocktail. There are several recipes that I have marked to try, but I just felt like some strawberry and coconut. My version did not turn out nearly as pretty as the one on the recipe. Probably because I used a BlendJet instead of a real blender. I just do not have luck using the BlendJet to make frozen cocktails for me. Regardless, the cocktail was delicious.
As a side note, I used agave nectar to adhere the sweetened coconut to the glass. As you can see in the picture, that did not work very well. Or maybe it did if you want that effect for your Halloween cocktails.
Recipe for 1 Lava Flow cocktail:
1.5 oz spiced rum
2.5 oz frozen strawberries
2 oz pineapple juice
2 oz cream of coconut
4 oz crushed ice
Blend spiced rum and strawberries in blender. Pour into glass.
Clean out blender.
Blend pineapple juice, cream of coconut, and crushed ice in blender.
Slowly pour pineapple mixture over strawberry mixture in glass. The two mixtures should mix in an interesting way. Mine did not unfortunately.
Here is the video of me making this cocktail.
