Pina Coladas!!!

The week of March 17, 2007, Brett and I embarked on our first big, alone trip. We took a lovely vaca to the Bahamas on the Royal Caribbean cruiseline. To this day, I call it “the best week of my life.” Tango lessons, endless beaches, steak with scallops, aqua water, and all-you-can-drink Pina Coladas…that is just the beginning of it. The best part of it all, of course, is that Brett and I were there together. We left Miami on the last day, talking about the next time we would see the beach together….

….and I have this little inkling that it will be next summer!!! On, oh, maybe a honeymoon??!! Probably not the Bahamas but somewhere tropical, you bet.

In honor of the past and the future… here is a yet-to-be-tried Pina Colada recipe. But, it’s very fitting that I went searching for this recipe today. This Saturday is Brett’s big graduation party, and you better believe I am whipping some of these up and garnishing with sweet pineapple!

Celebratory Pina Colada’s!!!

1 C coconut milk or cream of coconut
1 C pineapple juice
1/2 C rum
4 TBS white sugar
2 C ice

Blend all in a blender. Pour into glass. Garnish as desired.

    Great idea, Sarah! This makes me want to relive our cruise memories as we probably won’t be able to get back to the beach until next year’s honeymoon either. One question: What meal ideas would you serve with these? Thanks! drew06(NQE)

    Hey Danielle, hmmm…. something that I LOVE and sort of reminds me of summer, the pool, etc. is coconut shrimp. It can be either an appetizer or entree but either way, its phenomenal. I generally make both a sweet/tangy dipping sauce as well as a salty/spicy sauce. You just gave me a great idea for a post!
