The Pina Colada is a summertime classic that deserves more respect than it gets. It may be sweet and it may be palatable to people who don’t drink much or are just starting, but it’s a wonderful treat for seasoned cocktail lovers, too.

Pina Colada recipe: rum, coconut, pineapple & bitters

 

The classic recipe is simply one part white rum, one part coconut cream and three parts pineapple juice, and it’s delicious. But there are some other options.

Recipe

  • 1 jigger of white rum
  • 1 ounce of dark rum
  • 1 jigger coconut cream (Coco Lopez is the best choice – whatever you pick, just avoid coconut milk)
  • 1 ounce of heavy cream
  • 3 ounces of pineapple juice
  • 1 dash of Angostura bitters

Put everything in a blender, adding ice if you like, and blend it for about 15 seconds. Pour it into a hurricane glass and garnish with a slice of pineapple and/or maraschino cherry. This is a great drink for parties, especially if you have non-drinkers among your guests, just make it without the rum and it’s equally delicious.

  1. This might be a very tasty cocktail, but it isn’t a traditional Pia Colada. The heavy cream and the bitters are embellishments.

  2. Right, that’s what I said in the article:
