A Miami Vice drink is a frozen cocktail with layers of strawberry daiquiri and pina colada. It is the perfect summer drink!
This delicious, fruity frozen concoction conjures images of sandy beaches, swaying palm trees, and swim-up pool bars. Contrary to popular opinion, the Miami Vice cocktail is most likely named for the city where it originated, rather than the popular TV show of the same name.
Rather than being a distinct recipe, the Miami Vice is a layered combination of two popular beachy cocktails: Frozen Strawberry Daiquiris and Frozen Pina Coladas.

How to Make a Miami Vice Drink
Prepare a batch of Homemade Strawberry Daiquiris and transfer it briefly to the freezer.
Rinse the blender thoroughly, then prepare a batch of Homemade Pina Coladas.
Fill each hurricane glass approximately a quarter full with the strawberry daiquiri mixture and top it off with a layer of the pina colada mixture until the glass is half full.
Layering Tip: After adding the first layer, slowly pour each subsequent layer over the back of a large spoon. This will help create distinct layers while the bright red from the strawberries slowly wicks into the lighter pina colada to create beautiful patterns.
Repeat this process once more and garnish with fresh strawberries and/or a wedge of fresh pineapple before serving.
