Straw Hat

This blended two layer drink was inspired by Summer fruits and hot weather.  Watermelon, mint and rum form the bottom layer while the top is more zesty with pineapple, orange, tequila, demerara and falernum.  Enjoy them apart or stir together.  Sip in the shade and watch the heat dance across pool.  

Bottom (Red) Layer

Silver Rum 1 oz

Melon Liquor .75oz

Watermelon Chunks .75 cup

Mint Leaves 7-10

Crushed Ice 1 cup

Top (Yellow) Layer

Agavero 1 oz

Pineapple Rum 1oz

Demerara Rum  .5 oz

Frozen Pineapple Chunks 1 cup (Frozen is ok, but let them thaw a little first)

Crushed Ice 1 cup

Blend each layer independently.  Having two blenders helps but isn't necessary.  Pour red layer first, then pour or spoon yellow layer on top.  Garnish with pineapple or watermelon wedges.  Mini straw hat is recommended, it helps shade your drink from that hot sun.  Makes two 12 oz drinks or one large.  As with any blended drink, if it is too runny you can add a little ice.  If it is too thick you can add a little juice.  

 

 The Straw Hat is a sure fire Summer blended concoction everyone will love.
