do you have to blend a pina colada

My Pina Colada recipe is an easy cocktail you can make at home with just THREE ingredients! You can also serve it as a mocktail – just omit the rum!

This is a sweet and fruity frozen pineapple drink that take just a few minutes to make. Take yourself to the tropics in under 5 minutes!

In fact, the blended cocktail is the original, and the shaken piña colada is the contemporary incarnation. If you’d like to make a shaken piña colada for yourself, try shaking 1 1/2 ounces golden or añejo rum with 1 ounce coconut cream and 1 ounce pineapple juice, and pouring it over ice.

Pina Colada Cocktail Recipes: 2 Ways, Blended vs. Shaken!


Is a piña colada shaken or blended?

While piña coladas can be shaken or stirred, this shaken recipe is a more recent adaptation of the original frozen piña colada from the 1950s. You’ll require a cocktail shaker, but if you don’t have one, don’t worry—just use a lidded Mason jar instead. The type of rum you use is important.

Can you drink piña colada mix by itself?

Of course. these pina colada mix drinks can be drunk straight from the bottle if you prefer a non-alcoholic virgin pina colada cocktail. Made with cream of coconut and pineapple juice, just add your rum and crushed ice and blend for an instant pina colada.

How do I stop my piña colada from separating?

(Wilson says that, despite the name, which means “strained pineapple”, it’s easier to keep the drink from separating if you don’t bother, but his would be better served with a spoon than a straw.) Fresh pineapple juice neatly avoids this problem, and seems to hit the spot flavour-wise, too.
