Mixoloco - Mixology Tips:

  • Coconut Cream Selection: When choosing coconut cream for your Piña Colada, opt for a high-quality, unsweetened variety to avoid overpowering sweetness.

  • Fresh Pineapple Juice: While canned pineapple juice is convenient, nothing beats the flavor of freshly squeezed pineapple juice for a Piña Colada.

  • Blending Technique: To achieve the perfect texture for your Piña Colada, blend the ingredients on high speed until smooth and creamy, ensuring there are no chunks of ice or coconut cream.

  • Garnish Creativity: While the classic garnish for a Piña Colada is a pineapple wedge and maraschino cherry, feel free to get creative and personalize your garnish with additional tropical fruits or a sprinkle of toasted coconut.
