Do you like Pina Coladas? And getting caught… well, you know the rest…. Happy National Pina Colada Day!
Like paradise and summer in a glass, this creamy classic drink has inspired a famous song that we probably just got stuck in your head. And though the weather might not reflect paradise today, and could even leave some of us caught in the rain, that doesn’t mean we can’t find a way to enjoy a summer staple, even if it’s on the couch.
Made with pineapple juice, white rum, and cream of coconut, a pina colada is an easy and beloved drink by many. So, get the glasses and fun straws out, and get ready to enjoy your Friday night:
Decide on Blended or Shaken
Though most are accustomed to a blended frothy colada, they can still be refreshing when shaken, not to mention easier to make! Mix the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. You can add in a lime wedge for a bit of extra sweetness, too. For the full recipe and some additional tips, visit here.
Spice Them Up a Bit
Are you looking to add a bit more flavor to the traditional recipe? Consider using spiced rum. You can either switch out the light rum for a dark spiced option or add a shot of the spiced rum on top when you’re done. Either way, the addition of spiced rum will add a bit of more flavor without it fully overpowering the coconut. Whether you blend or shake it, you’ll be saying yum with every sip!
Ditch The Booze and Bake Instead
Who said you have to drink your pina coladas? Why not bake them instead. From cake to pies, there are a variety of options to choose from! One more delicious than the next. Not to mention, it allows you to celebrate with the whole family, too!
