Pina colada ... The Five Recipes Of Christmas #4

So, pina coladas is one of my favourite alcoholic drinks, and is my favourite cocktail. I go on holiday in June/July 2014 so I'll be knee deep in different cocktails, so maybe my mind will change.
Its sweet, but in all the right ways. The basic flavour of a pina colada is the mix of pineapple and coconut, which even individually are beautiful flavours!

100ml pineapple juice,
50ml cream of coconut,
40ml coconut liquor,
40ml white rum,
Pineapple/cherry to garnish.

Alternative Recipe

100ml pineapple juice,
50ml cream of coconut,
50ml white rum,
2 tbsp double cream/ 1 tbsp advocate.

Virgin Pina Colada

150ml pineapple juice,
75ml cream of coconut,
3 tbsp double cream,
Pineapple, shredded coconut or cherry to garnish.

Mix all the liquid ingredients together and top with a chosen garnish! Simple and easy!
Serve with 1/2 cup- 1 cup ice.
