The traditional blended pina colada recipe doesn’t use frozen pineapple, but I find it adds a bit more flavor and reduces the amount of ice needed.
As with most tiki-style drinks, this one uses multiple styles of rum to achieve balance and flavor.
1 Blend! Place the white rum, coconut cream, pineapple juice and chunks, and ice in a blender. Process until totally blended.
2 Pour! Pour into glasses and top with and top with the golden rum (it should float on top).
3 Serve! Serve with pineapple leaves or slices as garnish if desired.
