Destination Wedding Signature Cocktail Friday ~ The Lava Flow

This recipe was found on a Squidoo lense,  Lua Summer Party Ideas 

I am all about the visual impact of the Signature Cocktail, much more so then the taste ( the shame…) this one is not only visually stunning but delicious too.

Lava Flow Recipe

There are numerous variations for making a Lava Flow. This biggest difference is that some recipes use 1 oz. of light rum and 1 oz. of Malibu® coconut rum. When Malibu® coconut rum is unavilable you can use 1 1/2 oz. of light rum and 1/2 oz. of coconut cream.

Prep Time: 05 minutes
Cook Time: 05 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes


* 1 oz. light rum
* 1 oz. Malibu® coconut rum
* 2 oz. fresh or frozen strawberries
* 1 small banana
* 2 oz. unsweetened pineapple juice
* 2 oz. coconut cream


Blend the 2 rums and the strawberries in a blender to form a smooth paste. Pour this mixture into a tall (Collins or Hurricane) glass. Rinse the blender. Blend the banana, the coconut cream, and the pineapple juice in blender with crushed ice until smooth.

Pour this mixture into the glass with the rums very slowly and watch as the strawberry mixture oozes its way to the top along the sides of the glass creating the flowing lava effect. Garnish with a pineapple wedge and paper umbrella.
