Whip up this easy, refreshing Pina Colada for your next get-together. All the tropical flavor you could want, coconut, pineapple, rum & a touch of lime makes this a summer cocktail guests rave about – that’s how good it is!
Yes I like pina coladas, la la la, and singing and vacations in the Florida Keys and well, I think they just make me feel good! Like I’m on vacation even when I’m sitting on my back porch. I can’t think of any other drink that puts me in such a laidback mood. OK, maybe my husband’s mango colada is first then this delicious pina colada has got to be next.
This Caribbean inspired drink has plenty of pineapple, coconut, a little lime and, of course, rum, all of which just goes to show you why one gets in such a tropical easy-going, feel good mood. It really is an easy drink to make and can be made with rum or without. Of course, if you want to really be spot on, you have to add a dark rum floater as well. Now we’re talkin’!
So what are you waiting for? Get your blender started and join me for a cool and refreshing pina colada or opt for our Key West take on this cocktail, a Key Lime Colada.
