How To Make A Pina Colada From The Mix
For an even simpler way to make a Pina colada, buy the ready-made alcohol-free Pina colada mix and pour some of that along with some rum and ice into a blender. Blend it up and pour it into glasses. You can also omit the rum and mix up some of the ready-made mix with some ice for your kids. They will love the tropical taste of it.
For a different spin on a traditional Pina colada, you can try throwing some strawberries or blueberries into the mix for additional flavor.
