Do you like Piña Coladas and getting caught in the rain? Making love at midnight and cheesy love song refrains? Here's how to satisfy your tropical thirst -- for the other stuff, check a dating service.
Step 1: Pour into blender Pour the rum, crème of coconut, and fresh pineapple into the blender.
TIP: 3 oz. of canned pineapple will work just as well, but rinse it in cold water first to get rid of that canned flavor. If you’re really desperate, use pineapple juice.
Step 2: Blend Add the ice and blend on high for about 15 seconds, or until you don’t hear the ice cubes rattling anymore. Your drink should look smooth and creamy.
Step 3: Pour into glass Pour the drink into the glass.
TIP: For some added zing, float a half a shot of dark rum or a fruit liqueur into your drink by pouring it slowly over the back of a spoon.
Step 4: Garnish Garnish with a Maraschino cherry, pineapple slice, and—for the full tropical effect—a tiny paper umbrella.
FACT: The Piña Colada is the official drink of Puerto Rico—though an earlier version originated in Cuba.
