Piña colada

The Piña Colada is a classic cocktail that’s deliciously fruity and refreshing, a perfect way to cool down in the hot summer days.

This is a fruity and juicy version, but if you fancy a creamier more indulgent version you can always switch out the ice for coconut ice-cream. Very naughty!

  • 30 ml COCO LOPEZ (1 part)

How to make it

  • 1 – Although you can make this drink with a single rum, we think a blend of rums really adds an unbeatable dimension. We use a blend of light rum, dark rum and coconut rum in equal quantities.
  • NB. If you're blitzing up multiple drinks for friends, or you just want to be prepared when the urge takes you, we suggest mixing the rums together in a bottle first for speed and ease. Simply measure equal quantities of each rum into a clean bottle and store with the lid on. Remember to label it.
  • 2 – Add all ingredients to a blender.
  • 3 – Add ice (preferably use crushed for speed and ease or switch coconut ice-cream for a more luxuriant version).
  • 5 – Blend until smooth .
  • 6 – Pour into glass.
  • 7 – Garnish and serve.
