Pina Colada

There's something iconic about summer vacations and pina colada's. It 100% is a summer drink so I'm going to get through this whole recipe without any rain jokes or references (that doesn't count).

This is another cocktail leading that shaken/blended double life. A delicate balance of sweet fruit flavours and creamy texture either way its served. For a smoother less icy texture when blending use frozen pineapple and coconut chunks.



Ingredients

60ml White Rum

60ml Coconut milk - not water

120ml Pineapple juice


Method Shaken

  1. add all ingredients to a shaker with ice and shake

  2. Strain into a tall glass - a hurricane or tiki glass will work best, over fresh ice.

  3. Garnish with pineapple ring and fresh coconut shaving

Method Blended

  1. To blender add rum, coconut milk, 60ml of pineapple juice, 2-3 chunks of frozen pineapple, 2-3 chunks of frozen coconut, and a few ice cubes.

  2. Blend. Gradually add more pineapple juice as needed to achieve desired texture.

  3. Serve in a tall glass as above and garnish.

For an extra holiday vibe, either mix can be served in an empty pineapple or coconut ... because we all have those lying around.
