One of the more exciting jars I found when I opened my Sugarlands sponsorship shipment was their Piña Colada Moonshine. I’ve been thinking for a few weeks about a great cocktail to make with it, and one day I discovered a new Trader Joe’s product that I figured would really make it shine (pun intended): “Island Colada” Mineral Water, a fizzy, sugarless water that I knew would work well with this moonshine.
So I developed a recipe for what I call a Piña Colada Fizz using Sugarlands’ Piña Colada Moonshine, Island Colada Mineral Water, and a splash of banana liqueur. It’s an AMAZING warm-weather cocktail:
Piña Colada Fizz (by Greg Mays)
- in a collins glass filled with ice, add:
- 2 oz Sugarlands Piña Colada Moonshine
- 1/4 oz banana liqueur (creme de banane)
- top with Trader Joe’s Island Colada Mineral Water (plain mineral water will do, too)
- stir briefly
- garnish with cherries
