½ cup frozen diced pineapple 1 ounce dark rum

2 ounces pineapple juice pineapple slices

2 ounces Coco Lopez coconut cream

Combine ice, frozen pineapple, pineapple juice, coconut cream and both rums in a blender until smooth and frosty. Pour into two glasses. Garnish with pineapple slices.

Other Treats

Many people enjoy the taste of pina colada in more than just a drink. If you are looking for a treat that allows you to enjoy the wonderful combination of pineapple and coconut but you want a non-alcoholic option, you may want to consider pina colada Jelly Belly jelly beans. You could also enjoy a pina colada snow cone. Many stores also sell pina colada lollipops. Have a few friends over. Serve pina coladas, and include the lollipops for the children and other people who may prefer the candy version.

Non-Food Fun

If you like fun scents in your home, burn pina colada candles or use pina colada air fresheners in your home. If you are hosting a party, having the scent in your home will add to the fun of the festivities.

Pina Colada T-Shirts

Another great way to celebrate is with a custom-designed pina colada t-shirt. You could also create a cheap custom tee that celebrates the beverage or the flavor. One great thing about a pina colada t-shirt is that it can be worn throughout the year. Wear it throughout the summer. If you live in a colder climate, wearing your pina colada tee in the middle of the winter will be a great way to remind you that summer will eventually come back.  Custom tees are also a wonderful way to advertise a restaurant or bar that is known for its frosty and refreshing summer pina coladas.
