The Traditional 

If you are a tried and true traditionalist, these three ingredients will make the perfect drink for you. Just go grab yourself frozen pineapple, rum, and coconut milk to mix together. Once these are all combined, you can pick your favorite garnish to take the drink over the top. For a little more convincing, this refreshing beverage happens to be gluten-free and vegan. So to anyone who is looking for a guilt-free refreshment, this recipe can be your new go to. 

The Sunrise 

While it might be a good idea to wait for a little after sunrise to whip out this bright drink, the bold flavor will be glad you did. Similar to the classic piña colada, this recipe can be made quickly. The ingredient list is a little more complex, however. With just a few more pieces, this drink can be made to impress anyone. If you are on board with that gather up coconut rum, mango juice, pineapple juice, coconut cream, grenadine, and fresh pineapple. Shake the first four ingredients up together and then add coconut cream slowly. After this is done, pour the grenadine into your glass. To top it off put some of that yummy fresh pineapple to garnish it. Once this is all done, start sipping on your beautiful and different piña colada!

The Snack

For a little bit of twist, try out a piña colada in a snack form! If you are more into eating a sweet treat, this recipe for magic bars is for you. All that is needed is graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, sweetened condensed milk, rum, flaked coconut, white chocolate chips, dried pineapple, and macadamia nuts. First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Next, combine the crumbs with the butter and press the mix into the bottom of a 9x13 pan. After that, combine the milk and rum in a bowl and set to the side. Sprinkle the rest of the ingredients on to the crumb crust, then drizzled with the liquid mix. Place the pan into the oven for 23 to 27 minutes or until it becomes slightly golden brown. When all that is finished, take the snack bars over to a friends house and receive all the compliments! Whether it is in drink form or dessert form, a piña colada is the perfect summer treat! Choose your favorite and make it for all of your friends. Share this article to get them excited for the all delicious treats!
