Summer acclimate calls for a buttery Pina Colada by the pool. There’s no bigger way to relax and adore the contemporary weather. Actuality is a absurd and accessible compound to accomplish a archetypal Pina Colada.
This isn’t a difficult cocktail to make, but it does crave a few capacity that you may not accept on hand. Be able by abacus these capacity to your arcade account so you accept them back you’re ready.
Pina Colada Ingredients:
- Pineapple juice
- Malibu Attic Rum
- Coconut Milk (canned)
- Lime Juice
What Rum is Best for Pina Colada
Malibu rum is the cast that I use. It adds an added close acidity to the alcohol that white rum doesn’t. However, white rum is about what is acclimated in a Pina Colada, so you can use either.
I accept Malibu because it has a natural attic flavour and a bland and candied finish. I’ve approved added attic rums afore and some accept a added bogus aftertaste that doesn’t do able-bodied in this cocktail. If you appetite a absolutely appetizing pina colada, aloof stick with the Malibu.
Here are a few added options for attic rum that you can adjustment through Saucey, Malibu rum included (click angel to go to the site).
You can additionally use a ablaze or aphotic rum (not spiced), if you can’t acquisition Malibu or aloof appetite to use what you accept on hand. It will still be delicious.
★ You can get this and abounding added liquors delivered to your aperture from Saucey $5 OFF your aboriginal adjustment chargeless commitment with cipher SAS) or Drizly ($5 OFF your aboriginal adjustment of $20 through this link). Only accurate in baddest states. ☺
Can I Use Vodka Instead of Rum?
I absolutely wouldn’t acclaim substituting vodka for rum in this alcohol because the aftertaste contour is different, so it will accept an affect on the drink. However, if you don’t like rum, or you’re in a compression and alone accept vodka, you can use it in a pina colada. Aloof accumulate in apperception that it’s not as aged or sweet, so you may charge to add a bit of agave abstract or simple abstract to sweeten it.
What Affectionate of Attic Milk to Use
For the attic milk, you appetite to use the affectionate in the can. It has a buttery array to it that attic milk in a carton (coconut milk for drinking) aloof can’t match. It’s additionally cool accessible to find, so you don’t accept to go analytic everywhere for chrism of coconut.
If you’re apprehensive about substitutions, you can accomplish the alcohol with a few added options but a can of attic milk (like Thai Kitchen) is best. If you’re abreast a Banker Joes, we like their amoebic attic chrism in a can.
You can use attic milk in the carton, if you charge to. It doesn’t accept the creaminess of the canned version, admitting so it will adapt the taste. If you do accomplish this substitution, additionally add 1 tablespoon of abundant chrism to accord it that richness.
If you like your Pina Colada to be a bit chunky, you can use beginning pineapple instead of juice. It’ll be a smoother alloy with juice.
Tools to Accomplish a Pina Colada
There actually aren’t a lot of apparatus necessary. One affair you actually charge is a acceptable blender with the adeptness to actually chop the ice. This will advance to the smoothest arctic pina colada.
I acclaim the Ninja countertop blender. It’s a 1000-watt blender that can abort ice with its 6 blades. It’s a able brand blender for aloof about $80. Such a acceptable investment, abnormally if you accomplish a lot of arctic affair and smoothies.
I additionally anticipate you charge blow glasses to serve your Pina Coladas in. This will drag the cocktail acquaintance to a absolutely accurate level. I can brainstorm it now. Feels like summer. If you’re not application a blow glass, use a alpine bottle that’s at atomic 12 oz (otherwise you’ll accept 4 drinks instead of 2).
That’s all you charge to accomplish the absolute Pina Colada. Aloof alloy up all the ingredients, poor it into your blow glass, top it with a close awning and you’re acceptable to go.
