Pina Coladas

“Velvety-smooth texture and a taste of the tropics are what this tropical drink delivers. The easy-to-make drink can be mixed and chilled ahead of time. When ready to serve, just blend for a creamy and delicious beverage.” —Linda Schend, Kenosha, Wisconsin

Recipe Notes

Test Kitchen tips

  • This tropical cocktail does use a good amount of rum. Feel free to cut back on the amount and replace it with water or additional pineapple juice if you'd like to make them a little less strong.
  • For a richer, robust flavour, try using dark rum or even spiced rum.
  • Over the years, pina coladas have gotten more and more sweet. This version doesn't include additional sugar but if you'd like it a tad bit sweeter, go ahead and add a tablespoon or two.
