When cooking goes awry – get yourself back on course with a piña colada.
I had a lot of cooking planned for our eating pleasure but also blogging. I had started off by cracking two jars used for preserving and half a dozen eggs. After starting to relax making the preserved lemons and taking some photos, I thought I deserved a piña colada for my efforts! I am not a fan of super sweet alcoholic drinks and this is not a super sweet version of the drink.
Quantities given make enough for one. You will need a blender or a stick blender. Serve in long stemmed glasses.
1 shot of rum (can add 2 + bit a extra ice so it’s not too liquidy)
1.5 shots of coconut milk or coconut cream
130g pineapple. Chopped. Fresh is best.
100g ice (about 4 cubes) crushed. I don’t have an ice crusher and just put the ice in a clean tea towel and crushed with a pestle.
Add ingredients to your blender and blend.
Or, like me, grab a tall jug, add as many times your ingredients (as drinks you need) in (ice last) and use a stick blender to blend. Chuck in the freezer so you can have 1-2 more after your first. This method is also a great way to make piña coladas for many in one go.
Pour into your glasses.
