This classic pina colada is a Caribbean favorite! Pineapple juice, coconut cream, rum, and ice are all you need to make this at home!
Oooooooooh guys. Do you see that up there? THAT is Summer in a glass! I first discovered pina coladas on my honeymoon on Maui (soooooo cliche, I KNOW!). It was love at first sip friends. Love. At. First. Sip.
I’ve never been much of a sweet drink lover, let alone a rum lover (except that
disguisting classy Bacardi Limon phase in college. Whoa). But there’s just something about the blend of pineapple juice and coconut that makes rum taste sooooo delicious. Blended with ice, these are all frothy and smoothie-like, and boozy as hell. YESSSS! Like I said, love guys, love.
So, how tired are all of you food blog readers (and writers! Holla!) of reading about “holding on to the last bit of Summer” just a little bit longer? Well…… I’m gonna go there. Yes, I want the weather to cool down, and yes, I love Fall yada yada yada. But, here in the PNW, so many of those Summer fruits and veggies are perfectly ripe. We went blackberry picking the other day, and got 2 huge tupperwares full!
So, if you don’t mind……. you will be seeing more Summer recipes on this here blog. In the form of blackberries. If they aren’t already gone.
- 1 cup pineapple juice
- ⅓ cup white rum

Well, I have all the stuff to make about 6 more of these. I know what I’m doing tonight! I wish I could invite you all over for some good times. 🙂
