Pina Colada

It’s summer in Canada and nothing (no matter how unmanly it sounds) says sitting by the lake to me like sipping on a Pina Colada.  Though in the unfortunate category in many minds as being a highly feminine cocktail, once you’ve had a great homemade Pina Colada from scratch, even the most surly beer-drinking macho guy will be converted.  It has to be a hot day, however, very hot.  This is not a drink for a cool, overcast afternoon.  And, the best ingredients must be used (fresh pineapple, Coco Lopez, etc.).  Do not even consider using mixes or the crappy bottled syrups from the grocery store.  I basically follow Dale DeGroff’s recipe.  It’s totally out of this world.
