Reader Suzanne sent me this question, which I thought would be fun to run on the blog:
Who makes the best Lava Flow’s in Bend? We went to McMennamin’s and the bartender there did not know what I was talking about. I love beer but crave a tropical break on occasion. Are Lava Flow’s difficult to come by in Bend?
Basically I had to look up the drink, and my answer was, “I don’t know, but try 5 Fusion, 10 Below, Hola, or maybe even the Hideaway or the D&D.”
As to what a Lava Flow is: it’s basically a variation on a blended Piña Colada, with strawberry puree added either to the bottom or the top (depending on who makes it) that seeps into the lighter-colored blended part of the drink—looking like lava. It probably originated in Hawaii (go figure).
So, readers: who does make the best Lava Flow in Bend?
