you could use a drink…

By in etc...

{ lava flow drink : image and recipe from squidoo }


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.

vodka
1 cup sugar
1 cup room temperature water
3 cups cold water
1 cup lemon juice
3 teaspoons grenadine


Create simple syrup: Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan and place the saucepan over medium heat. Stir the mixture occasionally to help it dissolve, if necessary, then remove the saucepan from the heat when the sugar has completely dissolved. Set aside to cool.

Pour the lemon juice (either fresh squeezed or store bought is fine) into a pitcher. Dilute the lemonade with the cold water, then add the simple syrup and grenadine and stir thoroughly to combine. Chill in the refrigerator before serving.

Optional: To create an alcoholic version, add vodka to taste and mix thoroughly before chilling. The recommended amount of alcohol is approximately 4 to 6 ounces, depending on how strong you prefer it.
