Old Fashioned Pina Colada

10 mins (prep 10)
5 ingredients
4 servings
Pina Colada means "strained pineapple." Our modern Pina Colada relies on coconut milk or coconut cream and is overly sweet and heavy. Before the 1950s Pina Coladas were very different. This version is light and not too sweet. I made it with Goya canned coconut water. Next time I will invest in an actual coconut and I think it will be even better. If you use canned pineapple, you will need to use a couple of tablespoons of the liquid to sweeten the cocktail.
