Blend without the rhum (to make a virgin) to get a wonderful milkshake aspect then add the rhum.
Yummmmm!

One of my favorite drinks ever. Try Bacardi 151 instead of light rum for an extra kick.
Good

Too sweet and separates quickly. Reduce coco cream to 1oz and add 1oz of pina colada mix. Add 1/2 oz 151 or another 1oz of light rum for boost.
Ohhhhhhhhhh

The ONLY way to make a Pina Colada! Delicious. Try throwing a strawberry/raspberry or two in the blender (or your fruit of choice) to mix things up from time to time.
THE BEST pina colada you'll ever taste!

In order to make an authentic pina colada there are some ingredients that are essential. Don't use canned pineapple juice. Cut up and blend a fresh pineapple. Put 2oz of a DARK rum (I use Meyers), 2oz of fresh pineapple (including the pulp, this will make your drink extra frothy), 1 1/2 oz of cream of coconut (must be CREAM of coconut not milk, and use Coco Lopez), and about 1 cup of ice into a blender. Blend for about 15 seconds or until smooth and then add 2 oz of half and half. Blend for another 7 or 8 seconds. Pour into a frosty glass and add a straw (for some reason it always tastes better through a straw, and if you wanna add a floater, pour some more dark rum down the straw for an extra kick). There you have it, this will be the best pina colada you'll ever taste and your fellow day drinkers will worship your existance. ENJOY!!!
The Captain should be here...
