Recipe: Pineapple Rum Slush

Ever realize that you have a "type?"

Recently I pulled all my cocktail and drink recipes out of the the Recipes tab (located at the top of the blog) and created a Cocktail tab so they would be easier to find. Because I update those pages manually, I was going through, removing and re-adding the images into a new page. In doing that, I realized that most of the cocktails I make on this blog are some kind of margarita or a gin-based cocktail. And when I think about it, yeah those are my types. When I'm searching a cocktail list at a bar, I'm either looking for a margarita with a twist or something made with gin.  

But today we're switching it up and going way tropical. This Pineapple Slush is such an easy cocktail because you're just throwing a bunch of stuff in the blender and having it do all the work. And this drink isn't as sickly sweet as it's cousin, the pina colada. 

Pineapple Rum Slush

Makes 2-3 drinks

2 cups cubed pineapple
1/3 cup coconut milk
1/3-1/2 cup clear rum
juice of 1 lime
2 cups ice

In a blender, add cubed pineapple, coconut milk, lime juice, 1/3 cup rum, and ice into a blender. Pulse until drink is slushy and no large chunks appear. After tasting, add more rum if you want a stronger drink. Pour into glasses and serve immediately. Tiny tiki umbrella are non-optional.
