Piña Colada

The Piña 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.

Piña 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.

Piña Colada recipe: rum, coconut, pineapple & bitters

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, because you can just make it without the rum and it’s equally delicious.

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

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