Pomegranate Piña Colada
Quick to make. Even more quick to disappear.
Piña Coladas make me think of summer things like sunshine, the beach, flip flops, the smell of tanning lotion, and warm evenings.
Here’s a spin on a Piña Colada (for adults only) that’s made with pomegranate juice which adds just a bit of tart flavor, and a pretty pink color to the mix.
Frozen pineapple juice concentrate is used to sweeten the drink, and it also adds to the classic Piña Colada flavor.
An added bonus when using frozen pineapple juice is that the leftovers (from the frozen pineapple juice) can be put in a plastic freezer bag or container and stored in the freezer for the next time you make Piña Coladas.
If you prefer a non-alcoholic version, in place of the rum just add sparkling water or club soda.
Let’s check out the ingredients for this Piña Colada.
Fresh 100% pomegranate juice, cream of coconut, frozen pineapple juice (concentrate), white rum, crushed ice, maraschino cherries with stems, fresh pineapple slices (optional for garnish), shredded coconut (optional for garnish)
