THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED!
It has been a heck of a week. Long days getting Desire by Blood ready, and then starting back in on A Little Harmless Fantasy. We also started school this week, so I have to add a little bit of that into my day too.
I need a break and to take that break, I would like a LAVA FLOW. Of course, I probably won’t get one until January when we head back over to the islands for a visit and the oldest’s 18th birthday. But there is a way to make MEL’s FAVORITE ISLAND DRINK, and here is the recipe.
- 1 oz. light rum
- 1 oz. Malibu® coconut rum
- 2 oz. fresh or frozen strawberries
- 1 small banana
- 2 oz. unsweetened pineapple juice
- 2 oz. coconut cream
Blend the 2 rums and the strawberries in a blender to form a smooth paste. Pour this mixture into a tall (Collins or Hurricane) glass. Rinse the blender. Blend the banana, the coconut cream, and the pineapple juice in blender with crushed ice until smooth. Pour this mixture into the glass with the rums very slowly and watch as the strawberry mixture oozes its way to the top along the sides of the glass creating the flowing lava effect. Garnish with a pineapple wedge and paper umbrella.
So, tell me if you have a favorite tropical drink, alcoholic or otherwise, and your name goes in the hat for a $10 GC from the online book retailer of your choice. (B and N, Amazon, KOBO, ARe)
UPDATE: I will pull the name on Saturday at NOON central US time:)
