Frozen Pina Colada Cocktail Recipe

The pina colada is a concoction that has captivated the entire world at this point. The majestic mixture of rum and coconut is only several decades old (technically), and yet is one of the most popular flavors of cocktail on the planet, not to mention one of the most ordered vacation drinks even in modern times.

In fact, the phrase actually translates to “strained pineapple”, which refers to freshly squeezed or pressed pineapple juice, which helps give the cocktail its signature flavor. The story goes that the drink was actually invented in the 1800s by a pirate, but that the recipe was lost for over a century, only for the drink to resurface and become more popular than ever. Regardless, the drink is now so synonymous with Puerto Rico that it has now been its official drink for 40 years. The frozen version is extremely popular, as it fits in well with the tropical theme of rum and coconut, and it is only right that a frozen version exist of a drink that is so tropical in theme and nature.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ounces of pineapple juice
  • 2 ounces of coconut cream
  • 1.5 ounces of white rum
  • 1 ounce of dark rum
  • 1.5 cups of ice
  • ½ cup of diced pineapples, frozen

Preparation:

  1. Place the ice, juice, cream, rums, pineapple, and ice into the blender.
  2. Blend until smooth and frosty.
  3. Pour into cocktail glasses.

Equipment:

  • Blender
  • Cocktail glasses

The obvious garnish is a pineapple slice, as that is the entire theme of the drink. It should be noted that the drink’s popularity exploded after the release of a 1979 hit song by Rupert Holmes, entitled “Escape”, although it became to be known as “The Pina Colada” song. In this way, the pina colada is similar to the margarita, as a song helped embed that cocktail in popular culture, as well. There are simply very few cocktails that allow you to let loose like this one, and there are even fewer that are as tasty – so celebrate today with the drink today, no matter the occasion!
