Pina Colada

Posted in : Beverages/Juices/Milkshakes on by : Simmi Iyer

Creamy, fruity and delightfully retro, the piña colada is the national drink of Puerto Rico, where it was invented in the mid 20th century. 


  • caster sugar 100g
  • white rum 60ml
  • pineapple juice 75ml
  • coconut cream 50ml
  • pineapple wedge to garnish


  • STEP 1. Put the sugar and 100ml water in a pan and heat gently, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Cool. This will make more than you need but will keep in the fridge for a couple of weeks.
  • STEP 2. Put the rest of the ingredients, 2 tsp of the sugar syrup and a small handful of ice in a  blender and blitz until smooth. Pour into a piña colada cocktail glass, with more ice if you like, and garnish with a pineapple wedge before serving
