Classic Piña colada
4 ounces cream of coconut
4 ounces pineapple juice
2 cups ice
2 slices pineapple and maraschino cherries for garnish
1 Put the cream of coconut, ice, and pineapple juice in a blender. This drink comes together quickly when you add all the ingredients at once. Reserve the pineapple slices and cherries, though - those are for the garnish.
2 Blend until the ice is crushed. It might take several pulses to get the creamy texture of a classic piña colada.
3 Pour into a glass and Garnish with a pineapple slice and a maraschino cherry. Float the pineapple rings on top of the drinks and put the cherries in the middle of the rings.
