|Do You Like Pina Coladas?|
|You don’t have to hum the tune. It took me awhile but I finally found the song. I was looking for Pina Colada, and all along the real name of the Pina Colada Song was ESCAPE by Rupert Holmes. |
For a quick and easy Pina Colada that is smooth and silky each time follow this recipe.
If you have a super blender that more or less makes smoothies–Put 3/4 full of ice cubes,
Fill to the same level as the ice with “Master of Mixes” Pina Colada mix found at Publix. Add rum to suit your taste and blend until it is rich and smooth. Outstanding taste and is perfect every time.
If you don’t have Master of Mixes Pina Colada mix, then at the grocery or liquor store find Coco Lopes Cream of Coconut in the can.
Place one 8 oz of Coco Lopez Cream of Coconut contents in a blender 80% full of ice.
Next-fill 1/2 same can with Pineapple Juice (4 oz) If you have the short 8 oz can this makes it easy.
Finally fill 1/2 or more of the same can with Light Rum (4 oz ). Is this easy or what. Blend till rich and creamy. If you want a stronger drink, add more rum. It is usually best if you put equal parts of pineapple juice and rum to keep the balance. For a real smooth Pina Colada, ADD ONE RIPE BANANA. It really make it smooth and delicious. The taste of the banana influences the taste of the pina colada. So, don’t use green nor over-ripe bananas. It adds to the flavor if you float a spoonful of cherry juice on the top with a cherry. DO NOT STIR! You can also add strawberries instead or with the banana for a different taste, or add some cherries. Have you tried peaches in your pina colada? By now you should have the point. Fruits mix well with this drink. A really good one will not have an alcohol taste and will be influenced heavily by the taste of fruit in the drink.
