Coco Punch Drink Recipe
I mentioned a few posts ago that I had some recipes that I never got around to putting up... here's one of them. Now, I know that right now is the time everyone is thinking about cinnamon, apples, pumpkin spice lattes, etc etc...
but... I don't know about you... but I don't really care about drinking/ eating something just because of seasonality. I know that pumpkin spice brings in more page views during this time of year... but durnint. If I like something, I like it! And I make it! Or order it.
And that be that.
Anyway... this drink is probably pretty obscure, but it shouldn't be! It was one of the first "proper" drinks I've ever had, at a Chinese restaurant, with my grandparents. It's similar to a pina colada, but tastes so much different, because it's made with blended chunk pineapple and coconut cream.
The smell was totally nostalgic for me... made me feel like I was back sitting in that big booth again with Grammy and Nootzie... staring at paintings of the Great Wall of China, and crunching on those appetizer noodles.
PS, I usually prefer straight-up or rocks blended drinks, but this one is a rare exception!
RECIPE FOR TWO
1 to 1 1/2 heaping cups of chunk pineapple
7 Tbs coconut cream
2 Tsp sugar
3 oz rum
+ Blend with about one cup ice
++ I blended everything without ice, and just threw in some cubes afterwards. I realize that's unconventional, so don't do it that way unless you wanna mainline the drink like I do :P
+++ Also very tasty without the rum :)
