Make one of these versions of pina colada to take on a picnic. There is nothing like a smooth cocktail of tropical juice on a summers day. Make it in the traditional way with rum or leave the rum out for non-alcoholic version.
If you want to imagine you are picniking in the Caribbean summer sitting in a hammock under a palm tree this is the drink for you. Yummy!
Pineapple has the reputation of being an aphrodisiac so this drink might be just the finishing touch to a romantic picnic.
So really relax and enjoy.
Blend the tropical flavours of pineapple and coconut with rum to make this luscious cocktail.
You will need
2 cups pineapple juice
1/2 cup white rum
1/2 cup coconut cream
2 tbs finely chopped palm sugar (brown sugar will do)
Blend pineapple juice, rum, coconut cream, sugar and ice in a blender until smooth. Pour mixture into a bottle and freeze it. The alcohol will stop the mixture freezing solid. Take it to your picnic in a cooler and it will be melted enough to drink icy cold when you get there.
There is no alcohol in this recipe which makes it perfect for all ages at a picnic.
You will need

I am getting really thirsty. I just can't wait for the tangy, rich taste of tropical summer. I am off to make one now even though it's too late at night to go on a picnic!
