  • Be sure to use light rum for this recipe, as dark rum will overpower the other flavors.
  • Coco Lopez sweetened cream of coconut is the most popular brand for this recipe, but other brands of cream of coconut can be used as well.

  • Substitute the light rum for dark rum - Dark rum adds a richer flavor to the Pina Colada, which can complement the sweetness of the pineapple juice and cream of coconut.
  • Substitute the pineapple juice for mango juice - Mango juice adds a more tropical flavor to the Pina Colada, which can be a nice contrast to the sweetness of the cream of coconut.

Mango Colada Replace pineapple juice with mango juice and pineapple chunk with mango chunk for garnish.

Strawberry Colada Replace pineapple juice with strawberry juice and pineapple chunk with strawberry chunk for garnish.
