Cocktail Corner | Lava Flow

This drink is a delicious taste of paradise all year round, but it is especially delicious when sipped poolside during the summer months. If you haven’t had this experience, I highly recommend it.

Lava Flow


  • 2 oz. Malibu (or your favorite coconut rum)
  • 2 oz. fresh or frozen strawberries
  • 1 small banana
  • 2 oz. pineapple juice
  • 2 oz. coconut cream


Blend the rum and the strawberries in a blender until smooth. Pour mixture into a tall (Collins or Hurricane) glass. Rinse the blender. Blend the banana, the coconut cream, and the pineapple juice with crushed ice until smooth. Pour into the glass with the rum mixture slowly. The strawberry-rum mixture will ooze to the top and along the sides of the glass, and ta-dah! Lava flow. Pool boy to provide suntan lotion massage not included. Cheers!

  1. I liked a pin on Pinterest that Nanea had recently pinned, I thought since we had similar taste in that pin I’d check out her boards. Then I wondered what Sweatpants & Coffee was all about so I checked out the website. You had me when I landed on the Lava Flow recipe, I knew we had similar taste then. From there I had to Like S&C on Facebook and let you know I love the site, look forward to the future.
