Ingredients:

1 ounce Rum

1 ounce Malibu

2 ounces Pineapple Juice

2 ounces Coconut Cream

1 Banana

2 ounces Strawberries

Ice

Blender

Hurricane glass

To start, blend the strawberries and then place them into the hurricane glass. Once you have added your strawberries add the one ounce of rum and Malibu. Clean your blender and place the two ounces of pineapple juice, two ounces of coconut cream, and banana into the blender. Blend everything until your banana is now mush and then add your ice. Continue to blend until all of the ice is crushed. Once everything is crushed pour the newly blended drink into the hurricane glass with the strawberries and alcohol. The strawberries and alcohol should slowly seep up the glass sides. This creates the illusion of lava flowing.

After trying this drink, some things became very clear that the hurricane glass was mandatory. If your glass has straight sides the alcohol and strawberries will just stay at the bottom of the glass. This causes the bottom of the drink to be really strong and ruins the overall taste. Another thing to change would be to reduce it to half or three fourths of a banana.

While this was a fun drink to have, the flavors and quantities need to be watched extremely closely, since all of the flavors could overpower the others. Also make sure to watch the alcohol content since the flavors are so strong you can very easily lose track of how much you have consumed.

The good thing about this drink is that if you add a bit more coconut cream to it you can make it a virgin drink very easily and not lose any of the other flavors. While this drink did have some great flavors it would be one I would try just see how well you like it. I probably won’t make it again; though it is a very nice looking drink to serve at a party.
