How to Make A Lava Flow Cocktail
Welcome to Common Man Cocktails, I'm your host Derek Schommer and today we’re going to look at the Lava Flow this was submitted by Cris and when I did some research on what the lava flow was besides just the simple ingredients it came down to—lot of people –it’s a Hawaiian drink, just serve it at Luau and such things and such things and although we’re not at all at Luau I'm going to do my best to kindly give the presentation and get that Hawaiian sure that’s anew, and I’ve got a casual glass that I got at the Hawaiian Luau that we brought back from honeymoon, so that’s cool, and so I'm guessing that what they served it in.
This drink is a blended drink so if you have a blender I'm not going to do a blender on the show yet I haven’t reached that level I'm not exactly sure how this how this sound system will handle blending with talking in such, so what did is I went ahead of time and I blended the ingredients.
These are the two ingredients we’ve got our base, and we’ve got this grape, it’s really just, two strawberries, this two here not the specific two cause that will be weird, and coconut I used done Don Q coconut. It’s a Puerto Rican rum and we’re doing--you do an ounce of the coconut rum, you do an ounce of rum. So that was kind of in specific so I was stock with the silver, and that’s what we use as a Don Q crystal silver and that gets your blendedness here.
This is the lava of the lava flow and then this is the flow. Basically what we have here is some bananas, some being just want one banana. We did an ounce your two ounces of the coconut cream this is a cream of coconut if you’ve never seen it. These different brands got a pina colada on the front, and so we did two ounces of that a whole banana. This is we put our ice so I threw not a spoonful of ice really all you really need. You don’t want to make it too thick because it becomes just too hard to drink unless that’s how you like it. It’s up to the preference, and then we got two ounces of pineapple juice that I didn’t bring up because you’ve seem pineapple juice before and think it was impressive. So pineapple juice, bananas and rum or pineapple juice, bananas and coconut with ice you get yourself pretty much a homemade pina colada right there, a virgin pina colada.
And then this is really strawberry to accurate you think about it strawberries and rum throw out some ice in there you’ve got strawberry to accurate, so we’re taking two drinks that are delicious and we’re going to bring them together. And so what were not going to need this stuff here it is where give you an idea what got blended in our coconut rum.
So the delicious about the process is what you’re going to do is you want to pour your blend of strawberries and this is nice and chunky. I just heat the blender couple of times I really kick the strawberries in the action and turn them into a pasty watery substance, and what you’ll do is basically roll it down the edges, so you’ll get it creep and around the edges here, and then pour the rest in. So there you go that’s your beginning.
The other way you could do it here just want to roll this way right you’ll get the same idea, and then this you’ll going to slowly pour right to the center and the goal is to bring the red flow up then I speed it up right near the end. There you go just basically banana, so what you end up with this is like crazy looking lava flow where you got the red streaming down the edges.
You’re going to do the magic here oh we’re getting the magic. There you go check it out I’ll spin all the way around so you could see and it’s nice and uneven kind of want to be less predictable such it is supposed to be some sort of lava flow. There you go in the bottom is a little white cause we just pour the kind of aggressively at the end to get it in there, and that my friends is the lava flow, and so of course it would not be a complete episode if we didn’t drink it.
Pretty drunk, now there’s only two ounces of lemon here but the silver the coconut really ends up blends well with the cream of coconut with that silver catch right through which is something you really get I believe the way at least I had my pina colada since you always get that a sort of burn, but it’s the alcohol presence near the back of the throat after you’ve taken a sip. This is not a virgin drink. The best part is extremely tasty it’s natural, so you’ll getting a lot of natural flavors which are extremely side of me because I like blended drinks in general, so we make our own pina coladas, and you could go on by the mix that works too, but it just taste so much more natural and tasty.
This is all around awesome I don’t think I’ve used awesome enough. This one’s awesome, so there you go that’s your lava flow. One more sip because delicious.
Good we can drink by the way and in the weekend, get yourself some fruit, bum you get yourself a drinks. I'm your host Derrick Schommer we’re teaching you how to drink.
