Pina-Rita takes a pina colada and mashes it up with a margarita. The Pina-Rita is the ultimate summer cocktail!!!
Summers in Arizona were always spent with the kids in the pool and then barbecues and drinks at night with the grownups. It is so hot in the summer that you really can’t do much of anything else! I mean hanging out in a pool and drink awesome drinks is a pretty awesome way to spend the summer! Now we’re in Oregon and I’m really excited to spend a summer here, enjoying all the fun new things to do. I will still be sipping on fun drinks while we barbecue this summer. That’s a universal summer activity no matter where you live!
When I took a sip of this drink I couldn’t wait to share it with you all!!! It is the best drink I’ve had in a long time. I really do like a good pina colada but they are very sweet. I thought that adding lime might help to break up the sweetness just a bit and I was right. That idea led me to tequila which got me thinking about my Pineapple Coconut Margarita and coconut tequila. It really is so good. 🙂 I used the coconut tequila in place of the rum and added the lime juice and I’m in Heaven! I can’t oversell this drink. It is AH. Maze. ING!!!!!!
