Skip the store-bought colada mix and whip up your own with chopped fresh pineapple, rum, fresh lime juice, cream of coconut, and pineapple juice. The optional black strap rum adds a distinctive molasses note, as its name suggests, and a complexity that ups the flavor ante of this classic tiki cocktail.

How to Make It

Combine first 6 ingredients in a blender, cover with lid, and process until smooth. Pour into 2 Collins glasses. Top off  each with additional 1 1/2 teaspoons (1/4 ounce) black strap rum,  if desired. Garnish, if desired.
