If you like… delicious tropical beverages, and getting caught by a... barbecue, this drink is so perfect for you. With an emphasis on using whole, fresh ingredients, our Piña Colada is super special because it calls for fresh pineapple that we chargrill and real coconut flesh for taste and texture. Anyone can put some Malibu, bottled pineapple juice and coconut cream together, but this is taking it to the next level. Step it up, Piña Colada.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
5 pineapple wedges, plus 2 fronds, for garnish (optional)
handful coconut flakes
agave syrup
30ml sweet coconut water
30ml white rum
30ml coconut rum
15ml simple syrup, made with brown sugar
15ml lime juice
3 strips coconut flesh
1 dash bitters, (seriously, just one – no pink drinks)
11/2 large handfuls ice cubes

Simple syrup

Quantity Ingredient
220g sugar

Method

  1. To make the simple syrup, place the sugar and 250 ml water in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the sugar is completely dissolved. Set aside to cool, then pour into a glass bottle.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  3. Heat a chargrill pan over high heat and cook 4 pineapple wedges until char marks appear. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  4. Place the coconut flakes on a baking tray lined with baking paper and toast in the oven for about 7 minutes, checking often to ensure that they don’t burn. Set aside to cool.
  5. Dip the rim of a highball glass in agave syrup, then coat with the toasted coconut flakes.
  6. Place the grilled pineapple and remaining ingredients in a blender and blend until slushy. Pour everything into the prepared glass.
  7. Garnish with the remaining fresh pineapple wedge and 2 pineapple fronds, if desired.
