Units Scale


  • 2 ounces dark rum
  • 2 ounces cream of coconut (Coco Lopez or Coco Real)
  • 1/2 cup pineapple chunks
  • 1 cup ice
  • Pineapple slice and maraschino cherry for garnish


  • 3/4 cup dark rum
  • 3/4 cup cream of coconut (Coco Lopez or Coco Real)
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh pineapple chunks
  • 3 cups ice
  • Pineapple slices and maraschino cherries for garnish


Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.


  • Pre-chill your glasses in the freezer and freeze the fresh pineapple chunks. It will help keep the piña coladas frozen when things get hot. 
  • Choose Coco Lopez cream of coconut to make a vegan piña colada.
  • I like using Myers dark rum. You can substitute your favorite dark or white rum.
  • Substitute frozen chunks of pineapple or canned pineapple if you don’t have fresh.
