Recipe for Pina Colada Whip – Beat the heat with this frozen tropical cocktail. Coconut, pineapple, and rum create a tasty drink that is great all summer long.
It is so hot outside… Today I looked out my window andthe thermometer in my sun porch said 102 degrees! That’s enough to give you an instant hot flash, even if you are in an air conditioned kitchen. What on Earth did people do before air conditioners? I was thinking about those who lived in the days of the wild wild west, they didn’t have the luxuries we have today. We could put our panties in the fridge like Marilyn Monroe in the movie “The Seven Year Itch”. However that wouldn’t help the neighborhoods around here that were without power for about 4 or 5 days!
All of this led me on a mission…What’s the best way to instantly cool down I could think of? A nice frosty Pina Colada of course! It’s like a mini vacation away from the weather. We aren’t anywhere near Hawaii, but we could imagine we were!
It was the perfect evening in our backyard. I had dinner in the crockpot already, so no worries there, or about anything when your enjoying an ice cold drink. It’s funny how that works. Sometimes it’s nice to do something special at home, you don’t have to worry about impressing anyone, or having everything perfect for company; just make it a picnic in your own back yard. We called it Tipsy Tuesday and thanked Kathy Lee and Hoda because when we killed off our pitcher of Pina Coladas we popped open a bottle of wine with dinner. Not a normal Tuesday for sure, but it sure did take our mind off of this crazy weather we’re having in St. Louis. We not only get the heat we get the humidity as well.
Now what made this Pina Colada Whip so good and almost could be considered healthy in some sense of the healthy spectrum. Let me share how we did it, I think you’ll love it as much as we did!
