If there is one thing we can’t get enough of this season, it’s an ice cold Pina Colada. It’s refreshing, it’s sweet, and it’s basically the tell-tale sign that summer is in full swing. This drink at its core is a mixture of rums, coconut cream and pineapple juice blended together to become an irresistible crowd pleaser at any pool party. Lucky for us, this awesome beverage is in season all summer long and we’ve been busy hunting down the tastiest recipes around for this classic cocktail in preparation for your upcoming beach days.
For this important occasion, we tapped into our talented crew of Top Shelf Bloggers and rounded up a few of their versions of this recipe for your reading (and mixing) pleasure. So grab some rum and give these a try…immediately.
1. Blueberry Pina Colada
2. Skinny Pina Colada
Taking part in a summer diet? No worries, you can have a healthy lifestyle and this sweet drink too, thanks to Cake ‘N Knife‘s Skinny Pina Colada recipe.
3. Pina Sunrise
What’s better than a straight up Pina Colada? A Pina Colada with sorbet, of course! Katie at the Kitchen Door incorporates the look of a Tequila Sunrise into this recipe, showing off its 3 tiers of flavor.
4. Pina Colada Baked Donuts
We couldn’t resist adding these to the list. If you’re a fan of the cocktail, then you’ll definitely love Stir & Strain‘s Pina Colada Donuts. These treats get two thumbs way up from us.
5. Pina Colada Popsicles
The title of this recipe alone is enough to get our mouths watering! A Taste of Koko‘s take on the Pina Colada comes in the form of non-alcoholic popsicles and they have quickly turned into one of our favorite party snacks this season.
