Hey Neighbors! 

Pineapples are really having a moment right now! I see them on clothing and in home decor. I decided to hop on the trend and enjoy them in my next cocktail. This is super simple and incorporates fresh pineapple. 

Ingredients: 

  • 1/2 cup Dark Rum (I used Malibu Black) 
  • 1 pineapple to chop into chunks
  • 1 Can of Coconut Milk 
  • Ice
  • Blender

First, grab your pineapple and chop it into chunks. Search on youtube the proper way to chop it up. I kept going until I filled a small bowl. Also, set some aside to garnish with. 

Put the pineapple, coconut milk and ice into the blender. Then add 1/2 cup of rum. Blend until smooth. That's it!

Lessons Learned: 

  • If your Pina Colada is not strong enough, add a rum floater to the top of your drink
  • Taste as you go to make sure you have that pineapple coconut flavor 
  • I usually pick my pineapple slightly ripe and then let it ripen on my counter. I use it once the leaves turn brown 

Peace!
