If you like piña coladas, you're not alone. Just one sip can transport you to an island getaway and you don't even have to leave home. Pour a half a cup of cream of coconut into a blender. And add an 8-ounce can of crushed pineapple packed in juice. Don't bother straining it. Just pour it all in. Next, you'll add a third cup of light or dark rum. The dark rum will give you a darker, richer flavor; and one tablespoon of lemon or lime juice. Cover the blender and blend the mixture until it's smooth. Add four cups of ice cubes and continue to blend the piña colada until it's completely smooth. It should be nice and thick. Pour it into tall glasses and garnish with fresh pineapple if you like. The perfect piña colada- icy cold with creamy tropical flavors.
