You don’t NEED to be on vacation on some warm tropical beach to enjoy this. Have a homemade pina colada, and kick back and enjoy – wherever you happen to be!
Homemade Pina Colada
This is another one of those things that I discovered much too late in life. I was never really into Pina Coladas, and then I went to Vegas. And then we had dinner at Bahama Breeze, and I ordered this thing of beauty. It was AMAZING.
My first drink in a coconut, and I was not disappointed. Well, a little bit when I discovered they left the core in it so less drink for me (whomp whomp), but luckily there were seconds!
When I got home I KNEW I had to work at making my own version, which is surprisingly REALLY easy.
The key to this drink is picking up some good sweetened coconut cream. You can generally find this at most grocery stores or liquor stores. It is packed with coconut flavor, and adds enough sweetness to the cocktail to make it a little desserty too.
I use this Coco Real Sweetened Coconut Cream. That’s an amazon link. If you order through that, I’ll earn a teeny tiny commission and you won’t pay any more than you would otherwise. Bonus for everyone! I’d suggest just picking it up at the store though. It is typically kept by the grenadine.
