Recently, neighbors were in Boricua (a.k.a. Puerto Rico!)….and, well, I was reminded of my first trip there oh so long ago (went with my Spanish class in high school, but that’s another story!) AND, I remember well my first piña colada. So, since my neighbors returned, rum in hand, I’ve been craving this rich-retro tropical cocktail (with umbrellas, of course—and if you want to totally take it back, maraschino cherries!). Perfect as a dessert—or mid-afternoon drink—the blending of pineapple and coconut softly says weekend, beach, and relaxation.This is definitely going to be my choice for Friday's post-work cocktail!
So, my friends, celebrate what promises to be a warmish weekend in the Northeast, with a barbecue—and get that blender going! ¡Buen provecho! Enjoy!
