Cook the Book: Piña Colada
Nothing says 'summer' quite like a piña colada. The mere mention of the sweet, tropical cocktail conjures images of poolside lounge chairs, wide-brimmed beach hats, and broiling sunshine. Too often, however, piña coladas are pre-made in giant frozen beverage machines and have an artificial, over-the-top coconut taste.
Today's Cook the Book recipe, excerpted from Margaritas, Mojitos, & More, is for a simple piña colada that uses only the freshest ingredients. While the recipe yields only one drink, it's easy to multiply. Whip up a batch this weekend and serve with your favorite chips and guacamole.
