4 ounces Light Rum
2 cups Piña Colada mix (Master of Mixes works well)
1.5 ounces of Grenadine (or any red mixer)
2 ounces of any blue mixer (Blue Curacao or Blueberry Schnapps)
Pour the rum, Piña Colada mix, and ice into a blender.
Blend on high until you achieve the consistency you like.
Next, pour ⅔ of that mix into a container and set it in the freezer.
With the remaining third, add your red mixer and blend well.
Pour your new red frozen mixture into your drinking glasses so that they are about a third full,
and set them in the freezer.
After about 10 minutes, ladle half of the original white mix over the red mix.
Your glasses are now ⅔'s full with red on the bottom and white in the middle.
Set your glasses back in the freezer and put the last third of your original mix back into your
clean blender and add the blue mixer.
Blend, and then ladle this into your glasses for the top layer.
It takes a little effort, but the result is certainly worth it.
Basically, you end up with a layered, red, white, and blue Piña Colada.
Add a straw and serve with pride.
Please, always drink responsibly.
