tiki tiki classic umbrella drinks by Yee-Fan Sun | 1 2 
continued from page 1
.
pina colada
2 oz. (2 parts) light rum
2 oz. (2 parts) pineapple juice
1 oz. (1 part) cream of coconut*

*This is a pre-made sweetened, condensed coconut goo and not at all the same product as either coconut milk or coconut cream; Coco Lopez is the common brand

Combine all the ingredients in a shaker with plenty of ice. Shake it up and strain into a glass filled with ice, preferably crushed or cracked. Garnish with a cocktail umbrella, some skewered fruit, or a combination of both.

To make a frozen version, just combine all ingredients in a blender with a cup of ice, and blend until the ice is finely chopped and you have a frosty frothy drink.

Homemade cream of coconut | If you can't find cream of coconut, try this DIY version. Combine a 14-oz can of coconut milk with cup sugar. Heat over medium-high in a pot, just until the milk starts to steam. Do not boil, as this will cause the coconut milk to separate -- not pretty. Reduce heat to medium-low, and continue to let the mixture steam, stirring frequently and adjusting heat as necessary, for 15 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and let cool. As the homemade stuff isn't quite as concentrated as the canned stuff, I find I need to use 1.5 times the quantity called for with ready-made cream of coconut.

blue hawaiian
1 oz. (1 part) light rum
1 oz. (1 part) blue curacao
2 oz. (2 parts) pineapple juice
1 oz. (1 part) cream of coconut

Combine all the ingredients in a shaker with plenty of ice. Shake it up and strain into a glass filled with ice, preferably crushed or cracked.

As with the pina colada, you can make a frozen version by tossing all the ingredients in a blender with a cup of ice, and giving it a good zizz.
