Why we love the miami vice cocktail
- Traditionally served layered, we’ve blended all the flavors together – by combining the layers of this frozen cocktail makes the overall flavor much more intense. Plus, it’s so much easier to prepare this way!
- This cocktail fusion creates a beautiful presentation – combining the creamy coconut-pineapple and bright strawberry to create a blush-pink hue that sets this cocktail apart.

Ingredients & substitutions
- Rum – For both a piña colada and a strawberry daiquiri, a light or white rum is usually the best option. Light, white or silver rum is milder which allows the fruit flavors to shine, without overpowering them.
- Frozen strawberries – You can use fresh strawberries for this recipe, though you may need to add a bit more ice to the final cocktail. Process the recipe as normal (with 1 cup of ice) and add ice only if needed.
- Cream of coconut – This is a sweetened coconut cream traditionally used in piña coladas. It adds creaminess and sweetness, so you don’t need to add simple syrup.
- Pineapple juice
- Lime juice
