Float to Freeport in the Nude

I've attempted to crack open a few coconuts from a local tree lately and each one has been rotten. I'll keep working on it. I found this interesting tidbit on youtube about how to crack coconuts that I'll include. I've also done some recipe searching and found a few that have helped me concoct a new one. First, here's a good simple basic recipe for pina colada mix that you can make by the glass. You will need:

  • One can of Coco Lopez or the like (shake the sense into it so it's mixed good)

  • One squirt bottle that you can pour the Coco Lopez into

  • Pineapple juice

  • Orange juice

  • Half and half

  • Cinnamon

  • Nutmeg

In a pint glass for a drink on the rocks or a blender cup for a brain freeze:

  • One heavy squirt of Coco Lopez ( don't forget to shake it baby)

  • 1/2 ounce Pineapple juice

  • 1/2 ounce OJ

  • 1/2 ounce Half and half

  • Dash cinnamon

  • Dash nutmeg

Add ice and liquor if you like or milk or more juice for a N/A treat. Don't for get to cap and shake 'til ingredients are smooth or blend with ice 'til frosty.

Float to Freeport in the Nude

  • 2 ounces of above mentioned Pina colada mix

  • 2 ounces Spiced Rum (you choose, it's your money)

  • 4 dashes Angostura Bitters (easy to find)

Build in a pint with ice starting with pina colada base first. Add Spiced rum and bitters. Shake until ingredients are smooth. The color should be a somewhat "nude" color. Strain into a plastic drinking glass (cocktail preferably) so you don't drop it on the deck and get ice in your heel. The plastic will hold some chill better than glass in 94 degree F heat as well. Get in the pool and drink it on ice if you need. You're drinking it not me. ( I may have to try tweaking this one for frozen brainfreeze as well.)
