Piña Colada Fiesta!

← Previous Story Next Story →

Yes this is a party in a post, to celebrate the one and only piña colada cocktail...

Retro cocktails are in! But who cares, because the piña colada never really went out. That lip-smacking combo of zingy pineapple and luxurious coconut (and plenty of White Rum) will always be a classic. We've also got some new ideas for piña colada inspired shots and infusions. Let's celebrate - it's Piña Colada day on 10th July!

The Classic

Classic piña colada


60ml White Rum - we used a new flavoursome craft one from NYC, Owney's - ideal.
60ml Coconut cream
120ml Pineapple juice
Optional fresh pineapple and maraschino cherries to garnish. Maybe a kitsch cocktail umbrella or two and a couple of straws. C'mon it's a party!


Pour the White Rum over a few cubes of ice in a cocktail shaker (we used an ex-coffee jar). Add the coconut and pineapple, and shake. Pour into your chosen glass and garnish. So. Easy.

The Piña Colada Tequila Shot

Piña colada shots

I've previously recommended a Cîroc Pineapple and Cîroc Coconut mix, to make up a boozy piña colada flavoured shot. But I didn't have Cîroc Coconut to hand yesterday. Among the wide range of bottles on my desk was Cîroc Pineapple and one of my favourite new drinks, 1800 Coconut Tequila. I gave it a 'shot'. It is bangin! Everyone in the office loves it (apart from Logistics Chris who only likes Talisker and Lager). Then I added pineapple chunks to some shots; a bit of coconut cream to the others. I'm copyrighting all varieties of shot with Cîroc Pineapple and 1800 Coconut Tequila as the base spirits, right here, right now: © © © © © © ©!!! K?


Cîroc Pineapple
1800 Coconut Tequila
Optional fresh pineapple and coconut cream.


Pour equal amounts of the Vodka and Tequila into shot glasses, and serve. For extra piña colada fun, plop in a piece of pineapple or stir in some coconut cream - or both.

Pineapple-Infused Rum

Pineapple-infused Rum


Fresh, ripe pineapple chunks
Rum - whichever style you prefer. We used The Duppy Share - an aged blend.


Put the pineapple in the Rum or pour the Rum over the pineapple. Either way it should be in a sealable glass container. Not plastic. Leave for a few days to infuse. Strain and chill, or chill and strain, and serve just as it is over ice, for a highly sophisticated and grown-up PC-flavoured drink. Mix in a little coconut cream if you fancy it.

Happy piña colada parties everyone!
