Author Notes: I like more pineapple than coconut in my pina coladas, so I thought I'd add some fresh pineapple as well as pineapple juice. And after a few experiments, I found that a combination of coconut milk and cream of coconut produced the right blend of sweetness and creaminess. A spritz of lime juice and a grating of fresh nutmeg were later additions.Merrill Stubbs

  • 3 oz light rum
  • 4 cups ice
  • 2/3 cup fresh pineapple chunks

  • 2 ounces coconut milk
  • 4 ounces pineapple juice
  • 1 Juice of 1/2 large lime
  • 1 Pinch freshly grated nutmeg, plus more for garnish
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender (use a good, strong one that can crush ice) and blend until smooth. Add more ice or liquid to taste. Serve in a pretty glass with a shower of grated nutmeg, a lime wedge and maybe even a cocktail umbrella.
