Pineapple Piña Coladas

Take your piña colada to the next level by serving it up in a pineapple cup. Yes, it takes a little more effort but it is a really fun way to sip this beach drink.

This is a lovely drink to serve up to your sweetheart. Don't forget the umbrellas! You can find the Pineapple Piña Colada Recipe here.
