Lava Flows - Pina Coladas with Rivers of Strawberry

These can be made as mocktails for the kids or cocktails for big kids. The recipe calls for defrosted frozen sliced strawberries. When you bring them home from the market, place them on a dish in the refrigerator so they will be soft and ready to process. The dish will catch any leaks or moisture from defrosting.
