Pina Colada – Cocktail of the Week

Full disclosure: I will soon be in a tropical area where today’s high temperature is 83. I figure since I can’t take you all with me, you’ll have to pretend.

What better way to imagine yourself on a tropical vacation than with a frozen cocktail?

As soon as I get to my destination I intend on kicking back with a fresh Pina Colada, our cocktail of the week.

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 oz white rum
  • 4-5 oz. pineapple juice (unsweetened)
  • 1.5 oz cream of coconut
  • pineapple slice (to garnish)
  • maraschino cherry (to garnish)
  • whipped cream (optional) (to garnish)

Blend all ingredients with 5 or 6 ice cubes (add one at a time so they get nicely crushed). Garnish with a little whipped cream, a pineapple slice and a maraschino cherry. Why not add a tiny little umbrella while you’re at it??

Switch it up:

Instead of rum, use vodka! (This drink is called a Chi Chi)
Use a flavored rum (like cherry, mango, or raspberry to infuse your cocktail with extra fruit flavors.)
Instead of blending the ingredients into a frozen cocktail, try shaking them with ice instead for a thinner drink!

If you could travel anywhere in the world right now, where would you go, and what’s the first cocktail you’d get when you got there? Tell us in the comment section below!
