Oh Yes! It’s summer time and family and friends have been visiting our beach house regularly. I’m sure you can imagine what that means 😉 It’s 5 o’clock somewhere… Actually to be honest I’m not even a drinker, I’m more the entertainer. I love to make fun appetizers and a batch of drinks to enjoy. This Beachy Piña Colada recipe is amazing. You’ll be thanking me for this one tomorrow.
The Most Amazing Beach Piña Colada Cocktail
Let me guess I’ve got you singing…
“If you like Piña Coladas, getting caught in the rain.
If you’re not into yoga, if you have half a brain.
If you like making love at midnight in the dunes on the cape.
I’m the love that you’ve looked for write to me and escape. ”
~ Thank you Jimmy Buffett
Yes you probably will be singing that all night but don’t worry I will be too. It’s all worth it once you try this delicious recipe.
Natural Beach Living Piña Colada Recipe:
2 oz rum
2 oz coconut cream
2-4 oz pineapple juice (I like more)
2 oz blue curaçao
Sliced pineapple, optional garnish
Maraschino cherry, optional garnish
1. Fill a hurricane glass with ice and prepare your garnishes. A beach umbrella is perfect for this Beachy Pina Colada that looks just like a bit of surf and sand in a glass.
2. Place the rum, coconut cream, pineapple juice and rum in a mason jar and screw on the lid. Give it a good shake.
3. Pour the Blue Curaçao over the ice and then, using a spoon, carefully pour the remaining pina colada mixture over the back of a spoon to avoid mixing the two layers.
4. Garnish as desired and serve.
*You can make this delicious cocktail two ways – blended or layered on ice. This version is layered on ice, but to make a blended version that still has that beach look to it, blend the blue curaçao with 1/2 cup of ice, and then the remaining ingredients with 1 cup of ice – separately.
So if you like Piña Coladas and bringing the beach feeling to your house make a batch of these… Just remember drink responsibly.
