As an homage to his Puerto Rican heritage, bartender Giuseppe González reclaims the delicious simplicity of the country’s national cocktail with the perfect Piña Colada recipe. Blend, enjoy, repeat.
1½ oz. aged Puerto Rican rum
1½ oz. cream of coconut (González uses Coco López)
1½ oz. pineapple juice
5 chunks fresh pineapple
16 oz. crushed ice
Garnish: orange slice or pineapple wedge
Add all ingredients to a blender and whir for about 35 seconds until smooth and frothy.
