Even though a pina colada is my ultimate summer drink, the Miami Vice is a close second. A delicious combination of everything I love about a pina colada combined with the tastiness of a strawberry daiquiri, the Miami Vice is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Instructions: 1. Mix half of your rum with the strawberry daiquiri, set aside. Then, do the same with your pina colada mix.
2. Poor the mixed strawberry daiquiri mix atop your pina colada in a large cocktail glass. Use a spoon or straw to swirl both red and white beverages together, and enjoy!
