Easy Piña Colada | 12 Days of Drinkmas

rose gold pineapple with strawberry and ornaments

“If you like Piña Coladas and getting caught in the rain.”

I’ll take 1 out of those 2, especially if it comes in a cute cup ? Side note- I did NOT know what that song was about until recently! Talk about being mind blown ?, or learning that you really should listen to the words of a song sometimes. HA! *Still a catchy song though, and I will karaoke my little heart out to it until I die.

This is a go-to recipe for me when I’m wanting something tropical with minimal effort, but ALL the flavor. Seriously 3 ingredients! I can’t with how easy and good this recipe is. Since I’m originally from Hawai’i and we don’t have “typical” Christmas weather – this is a fun one for those of you in the more tropical climates. Who aren’t currently freezing their tushes to death- and no 68 degrees is not freezing (as I sit writing this with 40-degree weather outside).

I’m going to keep this short and sweet just like the recipe. This is also a good one for when we can gather together again to make in a large batch!


Of course being from Hawai’i we try to make our Christmas feel like it did when we were kids. These ornaments are a part of my sister and brother’s collection. Some my mom has bought over the time us “kids” have been on the continent, and some my Tutu (grandmother) have gotten. They have a bunch of these fun tropical themed ornaments that always make us smile and remind us where we’ve come from.
