Author Notes

It's hard to argue against the merits of three island staples like pineapple juice, coconut, and rum, all blended up into a frozen cocktail. This is a healthy pour for one person, but we'd recommend filling up your blender with even more to make it a party. —Samantha Weiss Hills

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Combine rum, cream of coconut, pineapple juice, and lime juice in a blender.
  2. Add 4 cups ice and blend until smooth. Sometimes it's better to start on a lower setting to break the ice down, and then blitz at the end to the ice consistency you want.
  3. Serve in a hurricane glass (or other bulbous vessel) and garnish with fresh pineapple, maraschino cherries, and shaved coconut.
