Who knew the pineapple could be so...sexy? Clearly, Temptation Island did because they send Nicole, Jack, Shari, and Luna to the local pineapple plantation on Episode 104 (read the full recap here). If skinning pineapples with machetes doesn't spell "romance," we don't know what does, but, seriously -- how good does a fresh pineapple cocktail sound? For anyone hankering for the taste of a tropical paradise, we present you with The Tempty Pina Colada. And kudos if you can core out a pineapple to use as a cup!
The Tempty Pina Colada (Makes 2)
2 ounces of dark rum
2 ounces of light rum
1 cup of fresh pineapple chunks
4 ounces of coconut cream (you can also refrigerate a can of full-fat coconut milk and scoop out the amount of solid coconut cream you need)
8 ounces of pineapple juice
1. In a blender, combine fresh pineapple chunks, rum, pineapple juice, and coconut cream until well mixed.
2. Fill each cup (or cored out pineapple!!) halfway up with crushed ice.
3. Pour the pineapple mixture over the ice.
4. Top with toasted coconut and garnish with a sassy little umbrella if ya got it.
Cheers to a good time!
