Cocktails are a lot of fun to make but there a times when we just want a drink that is quick to mix but with a bit more complexity. Well, have I got a drink a for you! I call it a Pina Colada Twist – why? Well because it has absolutely no cream and I use a base of spiced rum…mmm. Now the other important ingredient is a bottle of Pina Colada juice that I found in the supermarket recently. It’s made by the Original Juice Co. and I have to say, it is the highlight of this drink. The company mixes in fresh apple, pineapple, lime juice and coconut water to make the perfect juice for summer – a pina colada juice. This refreshing cocktail is a mix of the Original Juice Co. pina colada juice and a delicious spiced rum. So now you can understand why I call it a “twist”. Here’s how to mix it.
Cocktail: Pina Colada Twist
WHAT YOU NEED
- The Original Juice Co. Pina Colada Juice
- Spiced rum (I used the Captain Morgan’s)
HOW TO MIX THIS DRINK
Fill your tumbler glass or jar full of ice. Add 45mls of spiced rum and top with the Pina Colada juice. Add some fresh mint and give it a good stir. Garnish with fresh fruit and a festive straw.
Now that wasn’t too hard was it.
Note: If you’re visiting me from overseas (not from Australia), you will need to search online for the juice product. I found two brands just doing a quick Google search – Lakewood Juices and Dole Juice.
