Have you heard of a Miami Vice? The name totally makes me laugh! I first had one in Curacao on the beach at the resort where we were staying on our honeymoon. The resort’s beach had bar service and when I asked the waiter to bring us something beachy and refreshing, he recommended the Miami Vice. It wasn’t until we received the pink and white drinks that I understood the name. The cocktail is 50% Piña Colada, 50% Strawberry Daquiri, and 110% delicious! It is seriously my go to drink at tiki bars and Mexican food restaurants. It’s very similar to a Lava Flow or a Chi Chi!
With two newborn babies at home, it’s unlikely that we’ll be going to a beach anytime soon, so I figured I might as well bring the beach to us! This drink is super easy to make using store-bought Piña Colada and Strawberry Daquiri drink mixes. Like I said, two newborn babies at home. Ha! But, you can fancy those pre-made drink mixers up by adding some fresh strawberries to the blender when mixing. Or you can make your own mixers – but you’ll have to figure that out on another blog because this mama ain’t got time for that right now!
I made these using my Ninja blender. And I served them in my favorite tall glasses.
Here’s the gist of the recipe, yours may differ based on your pina colada or daquiri mixer.
