This Miami Vice Cocktail is a great drink to make for BBQs, and entertaining events. It looks impressive, and tastes like a topical paradise.

This frozen drink part strawberry daiquiri and part pina colada. You get the sweet tastes of juicy strawberries, with the tang of pineapple, and the creaminess of coconut. Perfection!

The bright red and white layers also make this drink tastes as good as it looks! Don’t let its swirled appearance fool you though, it is really easy to make! Even if you’ve never seen a simple episode of the tv show this Miami Vice drink is a must try. I hope you’ll try it!

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What Kind of Rum Should I Use?
    I prefer to use a white rum when I make this Miami Vice drink recipe. You can use any type of rum, but white rum is mild so it won’t take away from the strong flavors of this fruity drink.  Avoid something like spiced rum that may over power the flavors.
  2. What is Cream of Coconut? To make coconut milk you combine coconut and water. The cream that comes to the top of the chilled coconut milk is the cream. It is then mixed with sugar. It is often used in drinks and ice cream because it has a creamy texture. You can use store bought or homemade cream of coconut in this recipe.
  3. Can I Make It Non Alcoholic? You sure can! Just leave out the rum in each layer. This is a great choice for those avoiding alcohol as it still has all the fruity flavors you love.

  1. Semi Homemade: Use pina colada mix and strawberry daiquiri mix instead of making the layers from scratch.
  2. Flavored Rum: Instead of white rum use flavored rum like coconut, pineapple, or even banana would be yummy.
  3. Mix Up The Liquor: Not a rum fan? Tequila can be substituted.
  4. Patriotic: Add a blue layer by dying half the pina colada layer blue.  This makes a cocktail perfect for the 4th of July or other patriotic holidays.
