The national drink of Puerto Rico, the Piña Colada is easy to make no matter where you are – as long as you have access to cream of coconut. Make sure it’s not coconut milk or coconut cream, as those are both unsweetened.
- 2 parts Dark rum or Light rum or Spiced rum or Coconut rum or Aged rum
- 2½ parts Pineapple
- 1 part Cream of coconut
Mix all ingredients with ice in a shaker like your life depends on it – cream of coconut is thick and a little difficult to incorporate without an extra shot of elbow grease. Pour over ice (this drink can also be blended). Garnish with a slice of pineapple, a cherry, or both.
