The Weekly Nightcap - The Firecracker

independence day falls on a wednesday this year. while it may not me the most convenient day for a holiday, the way i see it, it just means we have two weekends to celebrate our countries independence and the sacrifice so many made to keep it that way.

this friday, i am kicking of the 10 day celebration with a cocktail.

i call this the firecracker - its a slight twist on a lava flow, but with a blue straw, it's a red, white, and blue explosion.


The Firecracker
makes 2 drinks

5-6 large strawberries, rinsed and hulled
2 oz rum
2 oz pineapple rum
2 oz coconut rum
5 oz cream of coconut
4 oz pineapple juice

in a blender, combine strawberries, rum, and pineapple rum. blend until smooth and pour into two highball glasses.

rinse out blender and combine coconut rum, cream of coconut, pineapple juice and at least a cup of ice. blend until thick and smooth adding more ice if too thin and more pineapple if too thick. slowly pour into two glasses slowly. throw in a blue straw and enjoy!
