"This is the perfect end to a hot summer day in San Diego. Back in college my roommates and I concocted this recipe one evening while living on the beach in South Mission. This drink is best enjoyed at sunset! Garnish with a pineapple or a lime if you like." — Kahana

1 (10 ounce) can
pina colada mix
4 (1.5 fluid ounce) jiggers
This is a wonderful refreshing drink. Instead of fresh mango, we used canned mango slices. This avoid the challenge of finding fresh mangos, allowing time for them to ripen and then going through the fun of peeling and slicing the fruit.
The drink was very strong. In addition to decreasing the rum, I'd really cut back on the pina colada mix as well.
This is a light and refreshing drink which makes a summer night into paradise (especially with a special some one). Mango made it sweet, and it was light (almost to light- I could keep drinking them). I LOVE IT!!
Smooth and sweet...yummy! A little more rum than the recipe calls for is great, but not necessary.
This tasted good but was really frothy. I made it for Bunco night and used coconut milk, because I had it on hand. I am sure that added to the frothiness. I will try again with the pina coloda mix and see if that is better. I was told it tasted very good, just too thick to have a second.
Everyone enjoyed this drink.
This is a definitely a nice drink for sitting out on the patio. I agree with some of the reviews in that it is a very thick, frothy drink. I used frozen mango because I couldn't find canned and then I cut back on the ice.
I took out the rum and used coconut milk in place of the pina colada mix. IT WAS THE BEST!!!!!
