Random Recipes

I love to participate in Pam's Random Recipe exchange. Today we are to post our favorite drink recipe.
I got this drink recipe right from the Food Network. It is so easy and very, very yummy! Gotta love FoodTV!
-Lava Flows-
Pina Coladas with Rivers of Strawberry
These can be made as mocktails for the kids or cocktails for "big kids". The recipe calls for defrosted frozen sliced strawberries. When you bring them home from the market, place them on a dish in the refrigerator so they will be soft and ready to process. The dish will catch any leaks or moisture from defrosting.
2 cups frozen sliced strawberries in juice, defrosted
2 cans coconut milk drink mix (recommended: Coco Lopez)
2 cups pineapple juice
6 shots coconut rum (try malibu or parrot pay for best results)
* For mocktails, omit liquor and use a few extra ice cubes
1 tray of ice

Blend strawberries in a blender on high until smooth. Place 1/2 cup strawberry puree in the bottom of 4 hurricane or double rocks cocktail glasses. Rinse blender and return to motor base. Place remaining ingredients in blender and blend on high until smooth. Pour pina coladas into glasses on top of the strawberry puree. The puree will run up through the pina colada, making a lava flow effect.
