The Piña Colada is having something of a renaissance, its refreshing tropical charms rescued from the artless premix slushy days of the 1980’s with today’s focus on fresh, quality ingredients and attentive technique. The original — rum, pineapple, coconut — is about as much fun as you can have with your clothes on.
Here, Manuel Terron offers a fresh take on the classic tropical recipe, using the popular MONIN Yuzu Fruit Mix, some Angostura bitters and some aged rum.
Watch Terron mix it up in the video here and check out the recipe below.
