Pina colada ingredients:

  • Pineapple: Fresh pineapples are mostly sour and dry. So if you are not using canned pineapples then you will have to add some sweetener to balance the taste. Cut the pineapple into chunks and freeze them for 3-4 hours.
  • Coconut milk: Coconut mice ilk comes in liquid as well as in dry form. I am using dry coconut milk powder. But you can also use liquid coconut milk.
  • Pineapple juice: you can make fresh pineapple juice to add in the drink. I am using readymade canned juice in this recipe.
  • Fizzy drink: Fizzy drink gives a very punchy flavor to your pinacolada. You can use white, non alcoholic fizzy drink of any brand.
