MIAMI VICE - A FROZEN COCKTAIL
Updated: Aug 9, 2021
Nothing cures a hot summer day like a frozen cocktail! There are so many frozen drinks to choose from, but this lesser known concoction is one of our favorites. A Miami Vice is simply a blend of a Strawberry Daiquiri and a Pina Colada! Frozen strawberry, pineapple and coconut... yes please! If those ingredients don't scream summer, we're not sure what does :)
The first step to good frozen drink is a good blender and nothing works quite like this Margarita Maker! The ice is in a separate reservoir - so it never gets watered down. Simply fill the pitcher with your drink ingredients and press the button, it will add the perfect amount of shaved ice every time!
For a Miami Vice you make the strawberry daiquiri and Pina Colada separately, then combine them in a glass. Check out the recipes for each flavor below. Combined, the amount listed will make 4-6 drinks so you can enjoy with some friends!
STRAWBERRY DAIQUIRI INGREDIENTS
4oz Bacardi Rum
6oz Strawberry Daiquiri mix
1/4c fresh strawberries
PINA COLADA INGREDIENTS
4oz Malibu Coconut Rum
4oz pineapple juice
4oz Cream of Coconut
Create each drink above using the Margarita Maker
Pour the Strawberry Daiquiri into your glass, filling it half way
Pour the Pina Colada into the glass - Tip: try pouring it down one side of the glass to get the separation of colors!
Top with your garnish of choice - we used a slice of pineapple and a strawberry
Do you want to take this to the next level? Try out an optional floater! Take a shot of dark rum and gently pour it on top of your Miami Vice...and voila - the perfect cocktail to enjoy poolside!
