Pina Coladas have been a favorite drink of mine since high school, and I love creating fun new flavor combinations! And seriously, who can pass up a bag of delicious summer cherries? I knew it would be a match made in heaven!!

With the extra cherries you have on hand you can make Cherry Almond Crisp, Baked Cod with Cherry Salsa, Cherry Bourbon Barbecue Sauce, or a Cherry Moscow Mule!

Cherry Pina Colada Ingredients:

  • clear Bacardi rum
  • pineapple juice – fresh or canned works perfectly.
  • cherry simple syrup – it is simple to make and definitely better when made the day before.
  • Coco Lopez cream of coconut – this is the sweetened coconut cream in the liquor department, not the unsweetened type in the Asian food section.
  • heavy cream to make it frothy and creamy.
  • fresh cherries for even more flavor and texture.
  • ice cubes
