Woo-hoo, I’m on vacation!

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you know where I am now. It’s not by a fancy poolside, not even a beautiful beach resort. I’m visiting my family in Mongolia. Lots of fun times though.

Speaking of vacations, pina colada always reminds me of a vacation time.

Fun, flirty and tropical!

It’s one of my favorite drinks, as it has two of my favorites: pineapple and coconut.

This is the classic pina colada we all know and love, but a notch better.

The secret is a little bit of orange juice. Last winter, I learned that orange juice and coconut is a great combination when I made this smoothie. My instincts were right that OJ will add a nice flavor boost to our traditional pina colada without altering the classic flavor.

Just a few words about cream of coconut. Don’t confuse it with coconut cream, or coconut milk. They are all different stuff.

Coconut milk is liquid and made of shredded coconut and water.
Coconut cream is thick and basically concentrated form of coconut milk.
Cream of coconut is almost sweetened coconut cream, but specifically made for desserts and mixed drinks. You can find it at any liquor store.

Whether you’re having a company over, or relaxing by poolside or in front of your TV, make this delicious pina colada for a little more special evening.

Just one sip will take you to a tropical paradise, even if it’s just in your head.

Enjoy your weekend! Cheers!
