"The real Pina Colada was invented in the Hotel Caribe Hilton in Puerto Rico during the decade of the 1950's. The inventor was a bartender who entered a world competition, and won for this drink. He did not patent the recipe for which reason I am able to make some modifications for your delight." — DWGONZALE

sweetened cream of coconut
this was okay...i left out the cream because it would have been just too much fat. The cream of coconut was creamy enough and it turned out fine.
I did not like this at all. It was way to strong and did not taste good.
I didn't have any cream/half & half so I used all coconut milk. I also used lowfat because I think the full fat leaves an unpleasant taste in the mouth. The drink was super tasty on a hot Texas afternoon!
Didn't try this although it sounds like an interesting variety. I'm curious why someone would make a pina colada in the first place if they'll "stick with wine." I'll try this at some point, but it does sound like it might need some modifications with the half and half. Thanks for the idea!
I didn't like this drink at all, I think I'll just stick with wine
I think it's the 1/2 and 1/2; although had fun doctoring the pitcher to make it work!
I wasn't a big fan of this. I'm not sure what, but it seemed to be lacking something. I was hoping that it would taste better than the frozen Bacardi mixers but it didn't. I will be using the frozen mixes next time.
