Frozen Pina Colada with Mango Puree

Author Notes: In some circles, the pina colada is a kitschy umbrella drink. Granted, it is not a cocktail you would order just anywhere, but in the appropriate environment, a frozen pina colada is just the thing. It is a boat drink; a perfect cocktail to enjoy on a catamaran in the Caribbean, a beach bar in Zihuatanejo, or by a pool in the summer Anywhere It's Hot, USA.
This pina colada is a classic combination of coconut cream, pineapple, light and dark rum. Chilled mango puree is swirled into the pina colada after it has been poured. It is a little something extra in an already refreshing drink. - Waverly

Food52 Review: A great version of a pina colada with a fruity twist. Blend up your mango puree, then add your pina colada mixture and pour into a glass. You can skip the extra rum at the end since both light and dark rums go in at the beginning, but if you like things strong, then top it off. - broccolirosebroccolirose
