Although many of the cocktails of the 1950s are back, a few have been unfairly forgotten. It’s all about the chi-chi: It is a cousin of the pina colada, but instead of rum it takes vodka. If you love pineapple and coconut, but not necessarily the sugar rush that comes with it, this is the perfect dessert for you. Even though it was featured in an episode of “South Park”, we think this TIKI drink (cocktails made with rum and typically accompanied by colorful fruit garnishes) deserves a full-on comeback. This cocktail offers something a little different than your average margarita or daiquiri, and is sure to make your summer a little bit more fun! Whether you have it poolside or just sit back and relax with it in the backyard, it’s the perfect treat for a hot summer day.
- You’ll find it’s best to use crushed ice when making blended cocktails to avoid a grainy consistency.
- It’s good to have canned pineapple on hand if you don’t have fresh fruit on hand. Be sure to drain the juice from the mix if it is too thick.
- If it’s too thick, add a little more cream of coconut, vodka and blend through again.
- It can be thickened with ice or even ice cream if it’s too thin for you.
