How To Make Pina Colada On the Rocks
It sounds fancy, but making this cocktail is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Throw a handful of ice cubes into a shaker to start. Then pour in pineapple juice, coconut milk, your rum of choice, and a splash of lime.
Shake and pour into a chilled glass with ice in it. Top with a maraschino cherry for an even more impressive presentation.
Best Coconut Milk to Use
Not all coconut milk options work well for this recipe. Canned coconut milk allows the fat and liquid to separate and this isn’t the best. It can make your drink less enjoyable. It is best to froth or whisk canned coconut milk if that’s all you have on hand.
Dairy-free coconut milk in a carton is the best option. You can find it at your local grocery store.
Is Malibu Or Bacardi Better For Piña Colada?
Malibu is an excellent choice if you prefer a lighter drink with an extra coconut kick. It also makes the cocktail a little creamier.
