Party like a pineapple


The piña colada, which originated in Puerto Rico, is an irresistible classic, and an occasion to pull out paper umbrellas — a tiki-culture addition. Just beware of brain freeze.

Piña Colada


• 3 cups ice

• 4 ounces golden or amber rum

• 4 ounces pineapple juice

• 4 ounces Coco Lopez cream of coconut

Pineapple slices, for garnish

Maraschino cherries, for garnish


Add rum, pineapple juice, cream of coconut and ice to blender. Blend until smooth and frosty; add more ice as necessary. Pour into tall glasses and garnish with pineapple slices and maraschino cherries (and paper umbrellas, if you have them). Serves 2-3.
