Now What?

You're back from what? Back to work. Well, in preparation for going back to work, we had Piña Coladas!

Piña Colada

For two large cocktails:
4 ½ oz white rum
3 oz coconut creme
6 oz pineapple juice
1 ½ trays of ice cubes

Whiz all together in a blender until smooth and frothy.
Garnish with cherry and pineapple!

The Rum is Don Q. The native Puerto Rican rum. Bacardi may be the world's best selling and from Puerto Rico, but the founder of Bacardi actually started making his rum in Cuba, before moving to P.R. Don Q has always been manufactured in P.R. But their sugar comes from the Dominican Republic. Shhhhh. Don't tell anyway. The guy who gave us the tour of the Castillo Serralles told us that.

The pineapple and cream of coconut. Shake that stuff up. The can of coconut will probably be separated and in need of a hardcore shake. I had to spoon and pour the whole thing into the cocktail shaker and spend a few minutes shaking to get the solids and syrup to come together.

"Do you like pina coladas..."

I do! And it is NOT a girly drink. It's not!

I don't see an umbrella-ella-ella-a-a-a in that it's not girly.

Cherries and pineapple...butch!

I had a really good Pina Colada a few years ago in the Florida Keys. It was made with and orange wine and the other usual ingredients. The orange gave it a nice twist and they were wayyyyyy to easy to drink.

Curious. Orange wine?

I had a banana pina colada in Bermuda (it was DELICIOUS) ... by the white sandy beach and clear blue water for as far as your eyes could see.

My cube does not equal Bermuda :(
