I have been on a huge summer drink binge lately and it might continue for a while. It is so freaking hot out that refreshing summer drinks are a must. Over the fourth I made a bunch of pina coladas at my parents house. Since then, I have been craving one, so I decided to make one with a little twist. I added some Passion Fruit juice to give them a different island flavor. Plus, Passion Fruit gives the pina coladas a nice light yellow summery look.
Passion Fruit Pina Colada
- 1/4 cup coconut rum (I like Malibu)
- 1/4 cup passion fruit juice
- 1/2 cup coconut cream
- 1/2 cup pineapple chunks
- 2 cups ice
Add all of the ingredients into a blender and turn it on until everything is smooth and you do not see any more ice chunks. Pour into a glass and serve with a cocktail umbrella or a wedge of pineapple.
Passion fruit juice may be hard to find in the grocery store. I looked in the juice section, fresh juice section, beverage section and finally found it in the international aisle.
When in doubt, go to the international aisle. I settled for passion fruit cocktail but it had the necessary flavor to give this cocktail a new zippy flavor.
