Pina Colada Floats
I don’t about you, but Pina Cola for me = Caribbean Vacation, and since I live in Miami, it is safe to assume that for now, I am enjoying my staycation in my humble abode.
So, I will drink my Pina Colada Floats outside on the patio without worrying about homework, recitals, and carpools. I made this virgin so the whole family can enjoy them.
Yesterday I was cruising the ice cream aisle at the supermarket (a bad little habit of mine), and I noticed that Haagen Dazs had a Pineapple Coconut ice cream flavor and I said to myself. FLOATS!! It’s a dessert and a drink at the same time. Delicious, and supposedly let’s count the cherry on top as the fruit factor.
One of my favorite Caribbean drinks are Pina Coladas, usually, I enjoy my cocktails with lot’s of alcohol in them. But when it comes to Pina Coladas, I personally think the rum takes away from the delicate flavor of the coconut and pineapple. But if you’d like, spike some white rum inside your floats.
If you’ve never had a float before, you are going to love it. It entails a bubbly soda with an ice cream and a straw. What’s not to like? The most famous one is the Root Beer float served with creamy vanilla ice cream. I made mine with Pina Colada just to pretend I’m on vacation 🙂
When you head on to your grocery store, look for the frozen juice section. They sell alcohol-free Pina Colada concentrate that only requires to blend it with some water and ice. Toss with some soda water, ice cream and you’re in float heaven! Don’t forget the cherry on top.
