Here’s another favorite party beverage I like to make every now and then, which I call my “world famous” raspberry lava flow Piña Bart-Ladas with blended red grapes and pineapple. Whoa, wait ‘til you try this one.
FIRST, who doesn’t like a frosty cold beverage on a hot summer day or night or how about any time? That said, this is a great drink to make when you want something very cold, frosty and delish! If you like piña coladas, then you’ll love this beverage and more. Especially, how I make it.
SECOND, because of the ingredients required, per se, I wouldn’t make this at parties as it could be quite expensive to make this drink en masse. So, I’ll just be going over the ingredients and supplies needed to make 1-3 pitchers that can easily serve 3-5 people a few drinks each. Sound good?
I use my personal Ninja Professional blender, but you can use whatever type blender you have on hand. Hey, go for it!
❑ SMALL GLASSES
These drinks are rich in flavor and thick with satisfaction. Try a small glass of the stuff at first. Want another glass? Pour yourself another glass. Want more? Make another pitcher. At least, that's been my experience.
❑ PARTY CUPS
If you do happen to be making this drink at a party, party cups are also a favorite way of serving to those who wish to try it.
Gauge all suggested ingredients based on the size of your blender and adjust accordingly.
❑ 2-3 cups of ice (gauge based on blender size)
❑ 1 cup of pineapple (never include the center)
❑ 12 red grapes (seedless)
❑ 3-4 cups of piña colada mix
❑ 1/4 cup of raspberry fruit puree drink mix
❑ 3/4 cup rum (any white/silver rum will do) or use water to make virgin (no-alcohol) drinks! You also don't need that much rum either per pitcher. So, feel free to buy a smaller bottle to save some money.
Here's how I make my world famous Raspberry Lava Flow Piña Bart-Ladas with red grapes and pineapple. Get ready, you're about to be transported to a beach side bar on some remote Caribbean island.
2-3 cups of ice
place it in your blender.
Grab 12 red grapes and
place them in your blender.
Slice 1 cup of pineapple and place 'em in your blender.
Pour 3-4 cups of piña colada
mix into your blender.
Pour 3/4 cup of rum into the blender (or water for virgin).
Place the lid on top and blend this yummy concoction.
What it looks like
blended and ready to serve!
Pour 1/4 cup of raspberry puree mix into an 8 oz. glass.
Pour blended mix
to swish puree around.
LOOK AT THAT!
Stop pouring as you get
to the top, of course.
Doesn't that look yummy?
Go ahead, this one's yours!
See the raspberry puree
and red grapes? Yummm!!!
