Friday evening, I shared a blender of this cocktail with my dear friend, Judy, and we decided it's going to be a new summer tradition for us! Here's some history and my updated version of an old favorite...
The Pina Colada was made famous thanks to a song that was released on 1979 although it was famous in Puerto Rico because it has been Puerto Rico's official cocktail since 1978, but it wasn't known as much as it is today since Rupert Holmes released his song "Escape" commonly known as "The Piņa Colada Song". This cocktail is one of the most famous cocktails around the world. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pi%C3%B1a_c...
Cheryl's Strawberry Pina Colada
1 can Bacardi Mixer - Pina Colada
1/2 can Coconut Rum
2 Del Monte Fruit Chillers - Strawberry (frozen)
Add the ingredients to your blender, fill will crushed iced and blend until smooth. How easy is that!
Those Bacardi Mixers are in frozen juice section. Use the mixer can to measure the rum. You'll find those fruit chillers in the fruit section at the store. Just pop them into the freezer overnight, and they'll be ready!
Maybe you haven't tried the flavored rums yet. It's so time!
If you haven't heard that song, for a really long time, here it is. 1,799,000 viewers!!!
