Spiced Piña Coladas can send you on an instant mini-vacation to a tropical paradise. Spiced rum takes this cocktail to s aelicious level.
You can’t help thinking about (or singing) Escape – The Piña Colada song at the mere mention of the frozen concoction. You’re singing it now, aren’t you?
Just a few ingredients are needed to make this tropical concoction. This is a piña colada with Captain Morgan spiced rum. You can certainly use other spiced rums, but this one really is top notch.
- Spiced Rum
- Cream of Coconut
- Pineapple Juice
A piña colada is probably my favorite frozen tropical drink. The perfect marriage of pineapple, coconut, and rum blended with ice for a summertime drink. It’s cold and refreshing on a hot day.
Can You Use Spiced Rum In a Piña Colada?
The short answer is an emphatic YES! While a piña colada can be made with any type of rum, my choice is a spiced rum, preferably Captain Morgan. To me, other spiced rums have that sharp bite. Captain Morgan is smooth.
Spiced rum adds more flavor to the drink without overpowering it and sometimes white rums can have that bite, or harshness, to them.
Remember, the better the ingredients, the better the drink. I preach this in my other cocktail posts.
