Total Time

The original recipe is from the Mangapwani Beach Club. Located on the northwest coast of Zanzibar, South Africa, this beach paradise has a checkered past. Nearby are the Slave Caves, where slaves were hidden after laws changed abolishing slavery. The Mangapwani Beach Club overlooks the beautiful waters of the Indian Ocean. The original recipe is from "Around the World in 80 Bars". I increased the rum from 2 oz to 3 oz per serving. Serve in a hurricane glass with long straws and garnish with a wedge of fresh pineapple. Enjoy!

This was a little different from other pina coladas I have tried. It was unusual, but tasty. I bought a fresh pineapple, but when I cut into it, it was discoloured, so I didn't use it as a garnish. Otherwise, made as directed. Thanks for sharing :) Made for ZWT7 - AFRICA.
