Today it has a bit of a "Retro" flavor – or maybe that's just the Rum I taste.
Traditionally the drink is shaken, not blended. And while I usually try and do things the "traditional" way – I gotta say that when it comes to Pina Coladas, mine are blended.
Pina Coladas are also easy to make, since they only require 3 ingredients plus ice.
- 1 1/2 oz light rum
- 2 oz of Coconut Cream Liqueur (Coco Lopez is the traditional brand, but use what you have)
- 2 - 6 oz Pineapple Juice
- 1 cup of ice
Put everything in a blender and blend till smooth. Serve in an old-fashioned glass, rocks glass, or collins glass.
