This pina colada recipe is made with rum, cream of coconut, and pineapple, and couldn’t be easier. We also think it’s even better than the classic.
This boozy, creamy pina colada is what we’re sipping all summer long. The frozen concoction features two types of rum (yeah, baby, two types of rum!), cream of coconut, and pineapple. With one of these in hand, you won’t even mind getting caught in the rain.–Angie Zoobkoff
