One sip of this icy blender drink transports you to the islands. We always skip the bottled mix and go old school, making a pina colada with cream of coconut, fresh pineapple, and rum just like they did in San Juan, Puerto Rico in the 1950s when the cocktail was created—though back then they might have shaken rather than blended this summertime classic. Our recipe is a one-step drink; just blend the ingredients and enjoy, but don't skip the pineapple wedges and leaves for garnishing.

This was very yummy. Excellent refreshing drink. I put in regular ice cubes when I blended and it came out wonderful. Excellent.
