I had a hard time deciding what to call this cocktail! I did not take the time to get exact layers by freezing between each one, but technically it is not a lava flow pina colada…they are made with bananas, not blueberries.

Whatever you want to call it, it is a berrylicious rum spiked cocktail that is perfect for hot summer days and patriotic celebrations!!

Patriotic Pina Colada ingredients:

  • frozen strawberries and blueberries.
  • Bacardi silver rum.
  • canned coconut milk, can shaken well to combine.

  • pineapple juice, canned or fresh squeezed.
  • whipped cream and fresh berries to garnish.

How to make a Layered Berry Pina Colada

We are going to make each layer separately, so have ALL ingredients ready to go!

Place the frozen strawberries, rum, and pineapple juice into the blender.

Puree until smooth but still very thick and frozen. Divide the mixture between two pina colada glasses. For more defined layers, place the glasses in the freezer for 15 minutes to set.

Rinse out the blender, then and add the coconut milk, cream of coconut, pineapple juice, and rum. Puree until smooth but still very thick and frozen.

I used a tablespoon to push the blue mixture down into the white mixture to give it more of a free-flow kinda look.

Top with a dollop of whipped cream and garnish with fresh blueberries and a strawberry. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes & Tips

  • For best results, use a really good blender that can crush ice!
  • Cream of coconut is a thick, heavily sweetened, processed coconut milk product that resembles condensed milk. It is originally produced by the Puerto Rican company Coco López and can be found in the liquor department in most grocery stores.
  • Canned coconut milk is unsweetened, full-fat and is very thick.
