Classic Pina Colada

It's Ladies Night Slow Roasters!  Tonight we have a fabulous classic cocktail for you; the Pina Colada.  This classic originated on the sandy beaches of Puerto Rico in 1954.  This cool and refreshing drink will transport you to the island before you finish your first glass.

With a blend of Malibu coconut rum and white rum this cocktail is kicked up a notch, from the original coconut and pineapple cocktail.  With coconut cream, coconut milk, coconut rum and fresh pineapple this drink would surely have inspired Rupert Holmes to write another Escape Pina Colada song.

If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
If you're not into yoga, if you have half-a-brain.
If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape.
I'm the lady you've looked for, write to me, and escape.

Classic Pina Colada
serves 2
2 ounces white rum
2 ounces Malibu coconut rum
3 ounces coconut cream
2 ounces coconut milk
1/2 cup fresh pineapple chunks
1 cup ice, more as needed
2 sliced pineapple wedges (for garnish)

Place ingredients (except garnish) in blender and blend until you have smooth and creamy consistency.

Serve with pineapple wedge garnish.  Enjoy!

  1. Ok, really? Could this photo look any more perfect?? Thanks a lot. Now I'm craving a pina colada at 7 AM and I haven't even finished my coffee! Awesome photo, Chad. Even if I weren't a sucker for both pineapple and coconut, the photo alone would convert me.

    1. Mary, It's five o'clock somewhere!! :)

  2. This is definitely not your average pina colada. Sounds perfect for a hot summer day.

  3. I love this! Pina coladas are my obsession :)

  4. I think this is the first cocktail I ever tried...something about the combo of pineapple and coconut is just irresistible! I think I need to throw a tropical themed party before summer's end, so I can make a huge pitcher of your pina coladas.

  5. Beautiful photos! I haven't had one of these in so long. It looks pretty darn awesome. And of course now I'll be singing that song for days and wondering where'd that come from?

  6. I have pineapple in my lunch today. Maybe I should have sprinkled it with a little rum. I don't think my co-workers would notice - do you?

  7. You really are the queen of cocktails - this looks heavenly!

  8. I keep thinking about this drink ever since I saw your picture. I am going to add it to my Mouth Watering Mondays post this Monday. Come on over to see it at Cheers, Tara

  9. I'm with Mary. HOLY BLEEP your food styling rocks.
