How to Make a Pina Colada from Scratch

Do you like pina coladas?  Or getting caught in the rain?  We think that's an easy one.  Have you ever made one from scratch?  It's easy!  We'll show you how.

Pina coladas don't have to be a vacation treat.  You can make one any time, and while we love the easy of a pina colada mixer, it's just as easy to make one from scratch.  All you need it pineapple juice, coconut milk and rum.  From there the sky's the limit.  You can add your favorite flavors by splashing in some schnapps or liqueur, and we've included some great recipes for inspiration below.  Or, if you prefer an even simpler recipe try the Blue Chair Bay Pina Colada Fizz, it couldn't be easier!  Coconut rum + pineapple juice for an instant vacation in a glass.
