Piña Colada Flaca
A lighter version of the classic, this cocktail uses coconut water ice cubes in lieu of all that thick coconut milk. Fresh juice from a raw, young coconut is, by far, the best-tasting, but barring that, use whatever you like. I prefer the Thai brands that have a toastier, macaroon flavor (they're usually marketed as "young coconut juice" and my favorite one is found in the freezer section of my neighborhood Asian grocery store).
