Several years ago, Jessica & I traveled to Las Vegas together to see Boyz II Men. The concert was awesome. Wanya sweated on me, Shawn gave me a rose & Nate gave Jessica a rose. It was such a fun night. Prior to the concert, we all met at the bar. Jessica, Mark & Derek drank some fancy cocktails & chatted up the bartender. I specifically remember Jessica giving me a taste of her Old Fashioned with the bartender’s house-made bitters. UGH! As Jessica said, “It’ll put hair on your chest.” Now, she loved it, but I just can’t hang. I told them, see you later & I headed to the Rum Bar for a tropical flavored daiquiri.

Sugar, Sugar

See, I’m a sugar fiend. Yeah, yeah, sugar is not good for you & all that, but I need it. I especially need it if I’m going to drink alcohol. If you’re familiar with out little site you know Jessica is our resident cocktail specialist. She made this Lemon & Elderflower Champagne Cocktail as a nod to the Royal Wedding as well as a Cold Remedy Hot Toddy to get you through Flu Season. She knows her way around the liquor cabinet & I wish I could keep up. The bottom line for me is I need to have a sugar soaked drink If I’m going to partake in the drinking festivities.

Hale Pele

A few weeks ago, I went out for dinner & drinks with my girlfriends at a Portland Tiki Bar, Hale Pele. My cousin, Bailey & I visited years ago & it’s a really fun placed with TONS of rum drinks, delicious Hawaiian bread with Guava jam & every so often the restaurant has a “thunderstorm”. Also, their Happy Hour is a pretty sweet deal.

We sampled several drinks, but the night’s winner was the Leilani Volcano. As soon as I got home, I looked up the recipe. Evidently, the drink was or is offered at Disney’s Polynesian Village. There are a few copycat recipes online. I checked out most of them out & went to work trying to recreate this sweet, but tangy rum cocktail.

Rum is Where It’s At

Now, Derek loves him some 151 proof rum. Me, I stick with Malibu for the most part. Checking out Jessica’s picture, she chose Bacardi. The beauty of this drink recipe is you pick the rum that YOU like & it tastes wonderful no matter what. For real, I’ve made virgin versions of this Leilani Volcano Rum Drink Recipe & added Malibu, Bacardi & 151 & each drinker is happy with his or her glass. So, you pick what you like.

Leilani Volcano Rum Drink Recipe Malibu Rum Kerns Guava Nectar Coco Real

Give Me Some of That Pink Drink

This drink is a stunner! For real I don’t even think the pictures do it justice. If you want to make it SUPER pink, you can omit the pineapple juice & just use the Guava Nectar. We’ve always used the Kern’s brand as it’s the only one I am familiar with. It’s super tasty without alcohol, so you could make a giant batch for a party & just have folks add their own rum. That way, the kids can party too! One note: you do want to make sure this drink is shaken well. The cream coconut needs to mingle with the other liquid. If it’s well-shaken, you’ll get a really nice foamy top. As Jessica already talked about in her Pina Colada On the Rocks post, I prefer the Coco Real over Coco Lopez as well.

THE VERDICT

I am Really Into This drink! Seriously, I am! I’ve made it every weekend since I discovered it. I sent the recipe to Jessica for tasting & she loved it. My friend, Cassandra came over & she loved it too! It is a wonderful summer cocktail.

Might I suggest you pair this Leilani Volcano Rum Drink Recipe with my Summer Poolside Reading List? Books, Sun & Sugared Rum? Let’s do it!
