Ever wonder why the Piña Coladas you make at home taste nothing like the ones served at your favorite tropical destination? Most recipes simplify the colada into a mixture of rum, pineapples & ice with a splash of coconut milk. A flavorful Piña Colada has two kinds of rum (light and dark), cream and even bitters added which make the concoction a true tropical delight. Use high quality Puerto Rican rum in this recipe for the best result. Enjoy!
- Pour ingredients into a blender and blend for 15 seconds with, or without ice (up to you).
- Pour into a poco-grande or hurricane glass and garnish with pineapple and cherry.
I gotta say that this was really good! Here it is, 10:00 PM, I was sitting thinking about my Jamaican vacation, and how depressed I was that's it has been a while, then I made a whole blender full, put the contents into my 64 ounce thermal mug, and maybe because it's kickin in, but I feel a lot better right now. Thank you and no problem mon!
This is far better than the horrible recipe on the Coco Lopez can, which was *WAY* too sweet. I may some minor changes, such as no bitters. I started with a 2.5 cup Magic Bullet blender cup, added 1/4 cup 1 tbsp (2.5 oz) of Bacardi Gold rum (dark & white combined), 1/4 cup 1 tbsp (2.5 oz) of Dole Pineapple Juice (from a can), 3 tbsp (1.5 oz) of Coco Lopez Creme of Coconut, 2 tbsp (1 oz) of "Half & Half", and filled it up with soft ice, then blended.
My husband was looking for a good pina colada recipe so I found this one for him. We had all the ingredients on hand except for the bitters. He made a whole pitcher of this. The key is the coconut cream (which I can actually drink on it's own it's that good). He will definitly be making this again and again. Thanks for the great recipe NcMystery!
