Good Afternoon, FB Peeps! It’s Piña Col

Good Afternoon, FB Peeps! It’s Piña Colada Day, July 10, 2016!

“If you like piña coladas and getting caught in the rain
If you’re not into yoga, if you have half a brain

– Escape (The Piña Colada Song)”, by Rupert Holmes

“The Piña Colada has a long and noble history, both as a mixological standard, and as the heart of a song about not giving up on love, just because you think it’s gotten stale. The name for the drink comes from the basis of its creation, Piña meaning “Pineapple” and Colada meaning “Strained.” This drink is a delicious mix of all the things that speak to the Caribbean and tropical locales, with the pineapple juice mixed together with a rich coconut cream, spiked up with just a bit of white rum into the mix. Is there anything that speaks more of warm white sand beaches and beautiful azure skies than a drink that was born on those same shores?”

“The Basic Piña Colada …
1 part White Rum
1 part Coconut Cream
3 parts Pineapple Juice

Take this mixture and stir in crushed ice until it’s good and smooth, pour into a glass that’s been chilled, garnish it with a slice of pineapple and an umbrella, and serve it to your favorite set of retrobates!

The Tropics by Storm …
1 part White Rum
1 part Malibu Coconut Rum
1 part Pineapple Rum
Frozen Pineapple Chunks (½ to 1” size chunks)

Pour this mixture into a cocktail mixture filled with ice, and shake it until thoroughly mixed, fill the coconut half half-full with chunks of frozen pineapple of various sizes, and pour the mixture over it. Serve with a festive straw and be ready to drown in a Tropic Storm of flavor!”

Bottoms Up … ENJOY! ^sPm http://ow.ly/i/l4pFu
