Pina Colada Mocktail Recipe

Did you know that the piña colada is the official drink of Puerto Rico? This popular cocktail originated there. Unlike the original, the recipe I am sharing with you today doesn’t contain any alcohol, so the whole family can enjoy it. If you want a more grown up version, just add in your favorite rum.

Note: You can also make this recipe ahead of time and store it in the fridge until you’re ready to serve. Simply give it a quick stir before pouring it into glasses.

This classic cocktail is delicious as directed but it’s always fun to shake up a few of the ingredients!

Ingredient suggestions:

  • A classic piña colada is made with white rum or gold rum, but dark rum or even a spiced rum can also be used. Each type of rum will provide its own unique flavor to your drink.
  • Up the intensity of the pineapple flavor by replacing some of the ice cubes with frozen cubes of pineapple juice. Just freeze the juice in an ice cube tray beforehand and it will be ready when you are.
  • Try making this with your favorite fresh fruit like mangos or strawberries instead of pineapple.
  • Make an adult version by adding 1 oz coconut rum or light rum of choice.  Malibu rum mixed with pineapple juice over a cup of ice has always been a favorite of mine.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Use nice, ripe fruit in your cocktails. The flavor really makes a difference to your finished product.
  • You can make a blended or shaken version of this delicious drink, whichever you prefer.
  • Don’t mistake coconut cream for cream of coconut. Both are made from fresh coconut, but they are quite different. Cream of coconut contains added sugar and has a syrupy consistency. Coconut cream is full of coconut flavor, without any added sugar.
  • Pina coladas are traditionally served in hurricane glasses, but you can use a highball glass or another tall glass for serving this classic drink.
  • Love a good cocktail, but you also want to cut back on your sugar intake? Make your own sugar-free simple syrup or try an alternative like agave nectar. Choose drinks that use club soda or tonic water, instead of sugary pop.
