Do you simply crave the Caribbean, the blue skies, the crystal clear waters, the white sandy beaches?
Every vacation destination has that one drink which is always incredible.
Just hearing the mention of a skinny colada sends me back to the vacation destinations I heart in the Caribbean.
Vacation drinks are easy to recreate at home if you have the right ingredients and a great recipe.
Today we are going to rock out the best Skinny Colada recipe and I know.
Using exceptional rum that is aged in American white oak barrels for about 1 1/2 years makes it perfection.
The rum I have chosen allows you to skip buying a lot of other ingredients, but if you can’t find it, you gotta make a skinny colada a different way, sorry!
Now, since many of us may not have everything at home to make a Pina Colada, this recipe is the easiest way to make one with few ingredients!
Lavishly live my libations out loud and get ready to create the best Skinny Colada recipe ever!
The Best Skinny Colada Recipe Needs a Special Rum
Taste-testing drinks are my passion and what happens when I taste test is that I define how things should taste, rather than how they do taste.
I take pride in learning all about the brands I indulge in and it is nice to kick back and reminisce about my travels through sipping a beverage.
Once long ago I wondered why a bartender would ask which rum, but I get it now.
The brand you choose defines what is poured into your glass and the end result.
Rum Brand that Creates The Best Skinny Colada Recipe
Think of rum like this, if you chose wrong, you end up on a deserted island, but choosing right, provides you the best in class destination.
Speaking of best in class rum, no conversation could be complete without talking about Don Q Piña.
It’s safe to tell you that if you love cocktails from the islands then get your fingers around a bottle of this!
Why I chose this rum? Read right below here and you will know!
Don Q Piña is exceptional, and as I alluded to before it is aged in American white oak barrels from 1 to 1½ years.
Then infused with natural pineapple juice and natural pineapple flavor.
The combination of bright citrus notes and subtle sweetness make Don Q Piña ideal for virtually any cocktail calling for a taste of the islands.
