Hey, drinking-aged fandom kids! I have another fic rec/cocktail recipe for you! The fic in question is another Kylux fic. I read this a few days ago, and it was such a fun twist on a modern AU, with a sweet ending, and it made me crave a tasty tropical-inspired beverage. So here’s a little something I whipped up in honor of “Something About Volcanoes” by @bettydays. This is what I would consider a “semi-layered” drink? So the recipe is listed in parts, and directions follow. It’s sort of a variation of a piña
colada with a little bit of a pink lemonade twist. The recipe is in 3 parts for visual effect, but if it seems too complicated you can just just stir everything together in a glass with some ice, and it’ll taste lovely.
Something About Volcanoes
1.5 oz UV Lemonade vodka
1.5 oz Smirnoff Strawberry vodka
3 oz of pinapple juice
2 oz coconut milk (regular canned coconut milk.)
2 oz rum
1 oz Southern Comfort
a dash of grenadine
Mix part 1 in a cocktail shaker with some ice and pour it into a glass (I used a large wineglass, but just make sure your glass will hold at least 12 oz.) Mix part 2 with some ice and pour, using a spoon to direct it against the side of the glass so it forms a layer over the top (it doesn’t matter too much if it’s a clean layer or not. This is just to add visual interest.) Mix part 3 and drizzle over the top. The idea is to serve it unevenly mixed, in the colors of a tropical sunset with a touch of red for drama (or “lava” in a nod to the fic’s title.)
Best enjoyed while sitting in the sun and reading about office-worker kylux working through Skywalker family wedding-drama in Hawaii.
