No, Don Johnson did not create the Miami Vice cocktail. Nor does the libation have anything to do with the ‘80s crime drama of the same name. Rather, the cocktail shares the name of the city where it was likely invented—and is most commonly served. Essentially a combination of a Pina Colada and a frozen Strawberry Daiquiri, the Miami Vice cocktail is 100-percent beach kitsch. Made with coconut creme, dark rum, light rum and strawberries, the cocktail is a layered, Frozun Pina Colada with a deceptively boozy kick.
- 1oz DrangonBerry Rum or Strawberry Rum
- 3oz Frozun Pina Colada
