Pina Colada and Mai Tai Cocktail Recipes

Stuck at home this summer? Try one of this week’s cocktails to feel like you are off on a tropical island on vacation. These are both classic drinks that have been around for quite some time and are enjoyed by many. Because they are classics it also means there are plenty of variations on the recipes. These are the way I enjoy these tropical refreshments myself.

Pina Colada Cocktail

  • 1 1/2 oz white rum
  • 1 1/2 oz coconut liqueur
  • 4 1/2 z pineapple juice
  • crushed ice
  • garnish

Put all items into blender and blend well! Pour into chilled glass. Garnish with pineapple.

Mai Tai Cocktail

  • 1 1/2 oz spiced rum
  • 1 oz coconut flavored rum
  • 1 tsp grenadine
  • 3 oz pineapple juice
  • 2 oz orange juice
  • ice cubes

Place the liquids in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well. Strain into glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with fruits or even a fun umbrella!

Don’t they both make you think of tropical beaches? What is your favorite drink that reminds you of the beach?
