Lava Flow

The weather in Beaverton lately has been very hot, last Friday I was really feeling like a cool summer drink to just wash away the busy work week. The first thing that came to mind was a fabulous drink we had in Vegas on our honeymoon; we had everything at home to make it other than the alcohol. When my husband came home we ran to our local liquor store for Rum and Tequila, these drinks only take moments to make and the flavor combination is over the top delish!

Pina Colada:

2 oz. - Pina Colada Mix
2 oz. - Rum
7 oz. - Ice

Strawberry Margarita:

5 oz. - Strawberry Margarita Mix
2 oz. - Tequila
8 - Frozen Strawberries
7 oz. - Ice

Place into a blender the Pina Colada ingredients and blend until smooth and frothy, pour into a glass and fill about half way. Rinse out the blender and place in the margarita ingredients and blend until smooth and frothy, pour on top of the Pina Colada and fill the glass. Insert a straw and site back with a cool and refreshing drink.

Two great drinks in one! What a genius idea. This looks delicious even at 8 a.m.

Yummy! I stayed at a resort in Mexico a few years ago and they served this drink there, but called it a Miami Vice. It was the best frozen drink I've ever had. I love that I now have a recipe to make this at home :)
