I'm not AT ALL a pina colada type of person. I don't really care for most pineapple and coconut flavorings seperately, let alone mixed all together at once, and especially with the wildcard that is strawberry. I went into this, expecting the berries to end up carrying the flavor into mediocrity. Even knowing how good I like Madrinas' other fruit flavors, I was doubtful. But not only was I not at all let down, honestly I'm shocked at just how much I loved this.
The pineapple is the front-facing flavor, the thing that stands out the absolute most. That's not surprising, it's acidic, it's strong, these things are to be expected. But I can ALSO taste the strawberry, which is really satisfying and authentic, and I can even taste the coconut itself! And it's not an insanely overpowering, crazy strong artificial flavor. It doesn't taste that artificial at all, which is absolutely flooring to me.
Madrinas has managed to make me love a flavor that I was afraid to even touch! It truly IS a vice to be this tasty!
Fun and provocative flavor. If you're in the habit of using your green coffee refreshers as part of mixed drinks, it makes a good cocktail ingredient. I was unsure of how the coconut, pineapple, and strawberry flavors would blend but was pleasantly surprised.
Probably one of the best flavors I had so far! Everything about Miami Vice is so good, flavor profile is on point with their own description of the flavor, if not that, then TRUST it is above par! 😎
If the show Miami Vice had a flavor, and it was legal, this would be it.
I'm not a big fan of coconut, but honestly it blends right into the whole appeal of the drink. And I couldn't pass up something that reminded me of Crockett and Tubbs in the Testarossa on their way to a bust, and this definitely has a real tropical vibe that just works.
I've tried several Fruit Fuelers at this point and Miami Vice is my absolute favorite. Hopefully it is the one that comes out on top of the travel series as the winner! The strawberry colada-esque flavors are a great combo and perk my mornings right up!
As with all Fuelers, there is significantly less sugar per serving vs. the cold brew coffees and are brightly colored, have a great non-coffee taste, and all while holding as much caffeine as a cold brew.
