Who doesn’t enjoy a nice cold Pina Colada on a hot day? The drink was developed in Puerto Rico in the 1950’s and became popular in the States during the ’70s.
Today it has a bit of a “Retro” flavor – or maybe that’s just the Rum I taste.
Traditionally the drink is shaken, not blended. And while I usually try and do things the “traditional” way – I gotta say that when it comes to Pina Colada, mine are blended.
Pina Coladas are also easy to make, since they only require 3 ingredients plus ice.
- 1 1/2 oz light rum
- 2 oz of Coconut Cream Liqueur (Coco Lopez is the traditional brand, but use what you have)
- 2 – 6 oz Pineapple Juice
- 1 cup of ice
Put everything in a blender and blend till smooth. Serve in an old-fashioned glass, rocks glass, or collins glass.
