I’m a single mom and I love to cook, but sometimes it feels like there never seems to be enough time in the day. The other day, I was craving my favorite cocktail – a Pina Colada! So I whipped up this easy recipe that is sure to satisfy your coconut cravings. It’s got all of my favorites: pineapple juice, coconut milk and rum. Enjoy!
prep: 5 mins total: 5 mins Servings: 1 Yield: 1 cocktail
2 fluid ounces sweet and sour mix
1 fluid ounce amber rum (Optional)
1 fluid ounce light rum (Optional)
¼ fluid ounce dark rum (Optional)
2 fluid ounces cream of coconut (such as Coco Lopez®)
1 fluid ounce half-and-half cream
3 fluid ounces pineapple juice
ice cubes, as needed
Pour the light rum, amber rum, pineapple juice, sweet and sour mix, cream of coconut, and half-and-half cream into the pitcher of a blender with ice; blend until the cocktail has a slushy texture. Pour the slushy mixture into a glass.
Slowly and gently drizzle the dark rum over the drink so it just floats on top; serve.
