National Pina Colada Day

Happy Piña Colada Day.

 

You can’t go wrong celebrating hump day with a Piña Colada. Whether you’re a coconut fan or a pineapple fan, the Piña Colada is the perfect beverage to put a tropical touch on any afternoon.

 

Here at DIA, we try to avoid taking the easy way out. So while there are plenty of ready to drink options, we always make our own:

 

  • 2 oz White Rum
  • 6 oz Pinapple Juice
  • 2 oz Cream of Coconut (not to be confused with Coconut Cream)
  • Blend everything with 2 cups of ice
  • Garnish with a cherry and pineapple wedge

 

 

If you don’t have a blender, you can try a shaken Piña Colada. It follows the same recipe (with less ice), but shake it vigorously instead of blending.

 

Cheers,

Casey
