Notes

Piña coladas are to the Caribbean what white wine is to a Manhattan singles' bar. The whining of blenders concocting this drink is the back beat of almost every bar in the islands.

To make a blushing colada, a lovely drink that glows with a sunset-pink hue, simply add a splash of grenadine.

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup crushed ice
  • 1½ ounces dark rum
  • ½ ounce brandy
  • 4 ounces pineapple juice
  • 2 ounces sweetened cream of coconut, such as Coco Lopez
  • Grated nutmeg
  • 1 pineapple spear
  • 1 maraschino cherry

Directions

Put the ice into a blender. Add the remaining ingredients, and whirl until the mixture is frothy. Serve it in a tall 12-ounce glass, garnished with the pineapple and maraschino cherry.
