Introduction: Resort Style Pina Colada

Picture of Resort Style Pina Colada

For those hot summer days, there´s nothing better than a refreshing beverage. And my absolute favorite is piña colada. There´s something about that tropical flavor that makes me feel relaxed.

On a recent trip to the beach, at one of those all inclusive resorts, a friendly waitress saw how much I enjoyed this beverage and was kind enough to share the recipe with me. You´ll see how the mix of fresh ingredients and store bought juice makes it flavorful and with that amazing texture that only fresh pineapple has.

Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients

1/2 cup of fresh pineapple

Step 2: Chop

Remove the skin of the pineapple. Then remove the center.

Dice the pineapple.

Step 3: Add Ingredients

Add the ingredients to the blender. The secret of blending them well is to add them in this order:

  • Pineapple
  • ice cubes
  • sugar
  • coconut milk
  • pineapple juice

Step 4: Blend

Then let the blender do its magic. If you have a frappe button on your blender use that one. Let it shred the ice and when the sound changes, that means all the ice is shredded.

If your blender doesn´t have that button, start by blending it on a medium speed, then increase the speed until you reach the top speed, wait until the ice is shredded. (you know better your blender, so if you think it won´t be able to handle the ice don´t do it)

Step 5: For a Party

Such a festive drink deserves a nice presentation. So put the piña colada in a cute mason jar, add a paper straw and a small slice of pineapple.
