how to make a JAMAICAN PIÑA COLADA

They say, summers are for Piña coladas but I say this creamy tropical drink is perfect any time of the year! A few winters ago, I vacationed in Jamaica to get out of the cold.  It was there I fell in love with their unique approach to creamy Piña coladas.

If you’ve read several of my posts lately, you will notice I’ve been talking a lot about Jamaica. One thing I wanted to learn to make after that returning home was an authentic Jamaican Piña Colada. I did a little research and decided I would experiment. Three batches later and a lot of changes, I landed on a flavor and texture that closely matched the authentic taste I enjoyed on the Island.

pina colada ingredients

There are a few ingredients that set this drink apart and often used in Jamaican cooking. Nutmeg, cinnamon, and evaporated milk aren’t your typical Piña colada ingredients but combined with fresh pineapple juice, coconut rum, and my favorite, peach schnapps – the results are lightly creamy and perfectly sweet.

Cheers! As they say in Jamaican Patois, “Enjoy di jink!” , better known as “Enjoy the drink!”
