Miami Vice Shot Recipe

A Miami Vice Shot is a great drink to serve at gatherings, and to the guests of honor. A strawberry daiquiri and a pina colada combine to create this icy treat. This frozen drink tastes like a tropical oasis. There’s the sweetness of strawberries and the acidity of pineapple in this, and the creaminess of coconut rounding it all off.

Aside from its beautiful appearance, the drink also tastes good, thanks to its bright red and white layers. You’ll be surprised to learn that it is so easy to make despite its swirled appearance. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never watched an episode of the TV show, this Miami Vice drink should not be missed.


  • This fruity drink can be made with any type of rum, but white rum is mild enough so that it won’t interfere with the flavors. Avoid spiced rums or any other rums that may be too strong.
  • This cocktail is ideal for the 4th of July or other patriotic holidays by adding a blue layer to half the pina colada layer.
  • If you don’t want to make the layers from scratch, use pina colada and strawberry daiquiri mixes instead.
