Happy Lava® Lamp Day!
Yes, April 5th is Lava® Lamp Day – greatest holiday of the year for sure! We had a yummy cake and some fun decorations to celebrate this wonderful day in the office.
No, we didn’t try to bake some of the cool cakes and desserts we found online in the shapes of Lava® lamps. You can find a ton of awesome recipes and photos of foods in our iconic Lava® lamp shape. You can also find a lot of great drinks that copy the mesmerizing flow of a Lava® lamp. But since we’re working hard creating Lava® lamps for all of you Lava Lovers out there, we couldn’t indulge in the alcoholic drinks with our cake. We save that type of celebration for the weekend!
In case you’d also like to make some cool Lava® lamp treats to commemorate our super special day, here a couple of recipies.
LAVA® LAMP CHAMPAGNE
6 ounces champagne or sparkling wine, chilled
1 teaspoon of dried cranberries, any flavor
Pour champagne into a champagne flute. Add dried cranberries. After a moment, cranberries will begin to slowly float up and down in glass, like a Lava® lamp. Makes 1 serving.
1 ounce coconut syrup
2 ounces pineapple juice
1-1/2 ounces rum (or skip the alcohol so the kids can enjoy this treat!)
A splash of vanilla ice milk or ice cream
½ Cup of ice
1-1/2 ounces of strawberry puree
Blend all ingredients except strawberry puree. Pour into a cocktail glass and garnish with strawberry puree.
