How to Make a Piña Colada at Home

I am really not much of a ‘drinker’, but I do love to make drinks that taste good.

One of my favorite drinks is a Piña Colada. (I’m a big fan of Coconut Rum, just call me basic – it won’t hurt my feelings). When I think of Piña Coladas, I think of the vacation so by drinking one I’m mentally on vacation. If you’re mentally trying to be on vacation, I’d recommend whipping up this recipe, sitting outside with some Chips & Guac, and taking a mental vacation. I hope you enjoy making a Piña Colada at home.


1/3 Cup of Coconut Rum (Malibu is my preference)

5 Cups of Ice

1 1/2 Cups Fresh Pineapple (it’s easiest to use precut pineapple)

1 of Pineapple Juice

1/3 Cup Coco Lopez cream of Coconut


In your blender, combine all of the ingredients starting with the ice. Once all ingredients are in the blender, blend until there are no ice chunks left. Pour into a glass and garnish with a pineapple wedge.

When making a Piña Colada at home, it’s important to remember to make this recipe your own, you are the bartender, ya know? So if you want more Rum you add more, if you want a thicker consistency you add more ice and less pineapple juice.

Feel free to tag me on Instagram if you try this recipe, I’d love to how you made your Piña Colada at home and how you are taking a mental vacation.
