Cranberry Lava Flow

When I think of cranberries, I typically think of Fall and the holidays, not tropical, summery and bright flavors. My entries for the "Cape Cod Select Summer Breeze Recipe Blogger Challenge" have totally changed that for me! Cranberries pair so well with pineapple and creamy coconut that I think you'll agree when you taste it- cranberries are perfect year round! For my third entry, I created a Cranberry Lava Flow, perfect for your Labor Day weekend pool parties. They're so pretty, and they look way more labor intense than they really are.
Cranberry Lava Flow
¼ cup sugar
½ cup water
4 oz light (white) rum
2 cups ice cubes
4 oz coconut rum
1 cup frozen pineapple cubes
4 oz cream of coconut
Fresh pineapple, for garnish

In a small saucepot, combine the cranberries, sugar and water over high heat. Cook for 10 minutes, or until the cranberries have softened. Set aside and allow the mixture to fully cool. Once the mixture has cooled, pour it into an ice cube tray and freeze until solid.

In a blender, combine the light rum, frozen cranberry and 1 cup of the ice. Blend until smooth and pour into 2 tall glasses.

Rinse out the blender and add the coconut rum, pineapple, cream of coconut and the remaining ice. Blend until smooth and slowly pour the pineapple coconut mixture into the glasses. Garnish with a pineapple wedge and serve immediately.
