Pina Colada cocktail with Malibu rum is one of my favorite Malibu drink, I could place it just above the Rum Martini cocktail. It looks awesome from the picture, right?This can be served in 2 different ways, as alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink and what it brings when enjoyed is a great taste of tropical aroma from all those mixed ingredients. Although the summer is over and it would been great for past hot days, it still remains a perfect rum cocktail to be enjoyed in a late evening with or without family.
As I said above, two Pina Colada variations can be made, by using alcohol or not. We will discuss both of its while one might prefer it alcohol-free or as usual, with alcohol. There are two Pina Colada recipes with Malibu coconut rum I use frequently, and here they come below:
First, we shall have a recipe for two persons serving, considering this you should half the quantities to have the perfect recipe for a single person. The ingredients for this Pina Colada recipe are 6 tablespoons crushed pineapples, 8 oz Malibu coconut rum, 6 tablespoons coconut cream (there are lots of varieties to choose from, I prefer the Pepe Lopez coconut cream) and crushed ice, about 2 cups of it. As usual, mix all the ingredients in a blender, fill a pina colada glass with the mix and serve it while it is still cold. Of course, you can garnish the Pina Colada cocktail with pineapple pieces and/or cherries, it all depends on how you like it. I personally skip the cherries here…
The second Pina Colada cocktail recipe contains the next ingredients: 1 oz coconut cream or coconut milk, 4 oz pineapple juice, 1 ½ oz Bacardi, ½ oz Malibu coconut rum and ice cubes, one cup should be enough. As above, mix all the ingredients in a blender, pour the mix in a glass and garnish with mango and pineapple. Sounds interesting, right?
As for the non-alcoholic Pina Colada recipe, just cut the alcoholic drinks from the ingredients list and there you go. Enjoy!
