Piña Colada

Thursday, July 9, 2009

I love Piña Coladas! This was our drink of choice for the 4th of July and I will be serving it tonight for our Big Brother kick-off party! We are obsessed with the reality TV show Big Brother on CBS! I don't know if it's really that interesting of a show or if it's because there aren't any other TV shows on during the summer but every July we get excited and tune in to watch what happens. A new season starts tonight, then new episodes will be on every Sunday (7:00 central), Tuesday (8:00 central), and Thursday (7:00 central).

Ingredients
1/8 cup silver/white rum (or 1/8 cup pineapple juice for virgin Piña Colada)
1/3 cup Coco Lopez Cream of Coconut
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1 cup ice

Directions
Put all ingredients in a blender and mix!
The Coco Lopez Cream of Coconut can be hard to find, but it's usually kept with the drink mixers. Here's what it looks like. Abby fell asleep in my shoe while we were playing cards at the kitchen table. She follows us everywhere, isn't she cute!

Carrie- My husband makes these for me by the gallon, almost. he uses the exact same thing as you with a dash of triple sec.

They look great!

My hubby and I are obsessed with Big Brother as well! LOL! We are so looking forward to it tonight...

In fact, I went into labor with my sun while watching Jen run around in her red unitard!!!

Those look beautiful! I served mine in plastic cups. :-( Next time I will plan on making a better presentation.

Not sure what it is about pineapple and coconut together but its pure magic. I drank so many of these while in Jamaica in January! The ultimate drink, and I love your recipe!
