amaretto piña colada

On the morning of a big birthday year, I met my friends and sisters on the rooftop pool of a Barcelona hotel and drank these for breakfast.

It’s a typical piña colada, only incredibly enhanced by the sweet almond flavour of amaretto. Combined with the pineapple juice and coconut milk, the almond is divine.

I could drink a gallon of this stuff. Oh, hang on, I did!

  1. Pina coladas! Now you're talking :)
    This drink holds many a good memory....it was the first cocktail I ever had.

  2. Nice one. I love using fresh pineapple for my pina colada! Cheers.

    1. me too. so much better than canned pieces or bottle pineapple juice.

  3. Nice pineapples ideas. In the 80´s pineapple was a classic in Spain. Now I am living in Brighton, England and in a Gourmet Shop they sale very juicy and tasty pineapples from Costa Rica, really yumi,

    1. i have never tasted costa rican pineapples. the ones from northern queensland in australia are amazing too!


Thanks for saying hello. It's great to know there are people out there in cyberspace!
