Campfire Colada!

I have some really exciting news!  I was recently selected by BACARDI® Mixers to host a summertime cocktail party.  As if that wasn’t enough, the drink mixologists at BACARDI® also created a drink recipe based on my own personal interests.  Ummm…wow! 

I couldn’t wait to pick up the phone and call my friends and neighbors about this party.  Needless to say, the party was a blast!  Along with plenty of BACARDI® frozen drinks, I had a plate of s’mores ingredients out for everyone to snack on.  (Have you ever added a piece of fresh pineapple to a s’more?  Neither had we until that evening, but it was oddly amazing!) 

And the best part about this party was how easy it was to pull together.  I picked up several cans of BACARDI® Frozen Mixers, ice, a pineapple, some coffee, and the necessary ingredients for s’mores.  Party done!  (The folks at BACARDI® Mixers were nice enough to send along party packs for my friends, too.  So everyone got drink muddlers, visors, recipe booklets, and of course BACARDI® Mixers.)

One of my favorite ways to end a hot summer day is to sit back with a couple close friends and enjoy a cocktail.  We occasionally have frozen drinks, but they often seemed like a lot of work to make.  BACARDI® Mixers solved that problem, and I can personally say that I am excited about many upcoming summer nights with frozen drinks on the deck!

In honor of Spiced, the BACARDI® mixologists created the “Campfire Colada.”  (On a side note, how exactly does one become a mixologist for BACARDI® Mixers?  Talk about a dream job!)  The Campfire Colada featured a blend of coconut, pineapple, and coffee…yes, coffee. 

When I first saw the recipe, I was a bit surprised.  I was wondering how the strong coffee would work with the fruity pineapple and coconut flavors.  But it was delicious!  Those mixologists know what they are doing! 

BACARDI® Mixers’ Pina Colada Mix contains real fruit juice, which certainly contributed to the deliciousness of this drink.  Pina Colada was the primary flavor, but the Campfire Colada finished with a nice hint of coffee.  Trust me when I say you’ll want to try this one out!

The Campfire Colada is part of BACARDI® Mixers’ “99 Days and 99 Drinks” summer-long series.  If you ‘Like’  BACARDI® Mixers on Facebook, you can follow along and see a new cocktail posted each day.  I just went through the drink recipes that have already been posted, and they all sound very delicious and very tempting. 

I’m definitely going to need to keep a stash of BACARDI® Mixers in my freezer this summer!  Oh, and if you share your ideas + photos on the BACARDI® Mixers Facebook page, the mixologists might create a personalized recipe for you, too.
