Because it is National piña colada day, and because mermaids have a thing for all things coconut … here are two amazing recipes to try today, and any day for that matter:
Wahine Pina Colada featuring Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, a straight-up, no nonsense, old-school rum, blended the way it should be, bold and smooth.
1 ½ parts fresh pineapple juice
1 ½ parts house-made cream of coconut
1 ½ parts Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum
Combine all ingredients in a shaker and add ice. Shake well and pour into a frozen pineapple. Garnish with sprinkled coconut flakes and an orchid. TIP: Add a ½ ounce floater to the top of your drink for an extra punch and an extra yum factor.
Flor de Caña Pina Colada featuring the award-winning Flor de Cana, a family-owned Nicaraguan rum celebrating over 125 years of rum production.
2 ½ parts Flor de Cana 7 Rum
3 parts pineapple juice
1 part coconut cream
Combine the FDC 7, pineapple juice and coconut cream in a blender. Add cup of crushed ice and blend on high until smooth. Pour into a tall glass and garnish with a pineapple wedge. TIP: Soak the pineapple in tum overnight for a delicious snack while enjoying your drink.
