Blue Ice Piña Colada Escape

The piña colada is an escape—an escape to the tropics. Nothing says tropical like having a piña colada in a coconut. Whether you’re hanging out by the pool or just enjoying on a summer day, this drink is your passport to the tropics.

-          3 oz Blue Ice Vodka

-          3 tbsp coconut cream

-          3 tbsp pineapple juice

-          1 cup ice (crushed).

-          Use a slice of pineapple for garnish

Method: Place all ingredients into a blender along with crushed ice until mixture texture is smooth. Transfer mixture into glass—strain if mix has pulp in it. Cut out the upper half of a fresh coconut and remove the flesh with a knife (safely). Pour blended mixture into coconut for a fun, summery sipping experience. Garnish with a slice of juicy pineapple or the optional sweet cherry for added flavor.
