Agua de Piña Colada

Who doesn't like Piña Coladas?  They're so popular that they even have their own song. (Which I have been singing all day!)

Agua de Piña Colada is a fun and easy beverage for both young and old to enjoy!  It is made with fresh pineapple and sweetened with Cream of Coconut.  For a more grown-up version, add a shot of rum into each glass before serving. 

Agua de Piña Colada

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups fresh pineapple chunks
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 (15 oz.) can Cream of Coconut
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • Rum (optional)


Directions:
In a blender, puree the pineapple chunks with 4 cups of water until smooth.



Pour the pineapple puree through a strainer into a 2-quart pitcher.



Pour in 1/2 of the cream of coconut and enough of the remaining water to fill pitcher.  Stir in the sugar and mix well.



Serve with lots of ice and garnish with a slice of pineapple.  Enjoy!!!



With Love,
