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

Part one

  • 1.5 oz UV Lemonade vodka
  • 1.5 oz Smirnoff Strawberry vodka
  • 3 oz of pinapple juice

Part 2

  • 2 oz coconut milk (regular canned coconut milk.)
  • 2 oz rum

Part 3

  • 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.

Hope you enjoy, and drink responsibly. ;)
