If you like Piña coladas. And getting stuck in the rain. There is something about that song isn’t there?
The lyrics instantly transports you to your happy place. A nice sunny day on a sugar sand beach with turquoise waters.
You know my number one beach cocktail is a Bushwacker (recipe here: How to make a frozen Bushwacker drink), but a good piña colada is not far behind. But what can you do when you’re not at the beach? The next best thing is to make your cocktail at home!
How hard is it to make a piña colada at home? A few ingredients and RUM and wham, you are instantly transported to your last vacation right.
Whether you are on the beach or on a cruise, Piña colada’s always put you in a great vacation frame of mind.
But you cannot bring the bartender home with you so that means that when you are craving a beach Piña colada cocktail, you need to be able to make one at home.
Denise to the rescue! One of my favorite cocktails to make way back in the day as a bartender was a piña colada.
I still make it the same way today with very few but fresh ingredients.
Ready to learn how to make your next beach pina colada cocktail at home? Ingredients and recipe below. Don’t forget the kids and anyone else who would like a pina colada mocktail by leaving out the rum.
Pina Colada Cocktail Ingredients
3 ingredients is all you need and they are:
- Rum (light or dark but I use light)
- Pineapple juice
- Coconut cream (I prefer to use Coco Real Cream of Coconut as I can keep it on hand in the refrigerator, but you can also use Coco Lopez)
Into a blender, I put in a full shot of rum (1.5 oz), 6 ounces pineapple juice and 3 ounces coconut cream and ice.
Blend to desired consistency, pour into a large cocktail glass and garnish with a slice of pineapple and cherry.
Slip your straw into the glass and enjoy! That’s all it takes.
And as mentioned above, kids and others that prefer no cocktail, leave out the rum for a delicious Pina Colada Mocktail.
