Oh, the Miami Vice. Such a sensual treat. The smell of coconut and strawberry mingling with rum. The taste of the tropics. Just looking at one brings me back to vacations past; lounging in a beach chair in paradise, and a bartender keeping us well stocked with a never ending supply of these tropical delights. I came across an easy recipe for a Miami vice recently and good vacation memories came flooding back and I thought – this should be called a “Tropical Beach Party In Your Mouth”.
We’ve made these before by mixing a batch of pina coladas and a batch of strawberry daiquiris from scratch and honestly, the taste is supreme, but it’s a lot of work. Especially because they go down way too easy, making the host jump out of their beach or pool chair to mix up another batch for everyone. This recipe is simple and it’d be quite easy to double it from the beginning, giving you extra time to relax and enjoy some Rum Therapy!
5 oz 151 “overproof” rum
1 can frozen pina colada mix
1 can frozen daiquiri mix
Combine pina colada mix with 2.5 oz of rum and ice – add enough ice to make a thick mix. Set aside. Combine daiquiri mix with 2.5 oz of rum and ice. Again, add enough ice to make it nice and thick. Pour pina colada and daiquiri mixture into a tall glass at the same time. If that gets a bit too messy, alternate pours. Garnish with strawberries.
