Shaken Piña Colada Recipe

A No-Blend Piña Colada For the Cocktail Connoisseur

No blender? No problem! You can make a refreshing piña colada with a shake that would make James Bond proud. Instead of using saccharine-sweet piña colada mix, emulate Hollywood favorite The Eveleigh and employ a roster of fresh, tropical ingredients to make an extra-sexy cocktail.

Notes

If you don't have a juicer, freshly pressed pineapple juice can be bought at many juice bars. You can also use canned.

Ingredients

For the spiced pineapple syrup:
2 cups water
1/4 cup black pepper
2 cups granulated sugar
3 vanilla beans
3 star anise pods
2 cups pineapple juice, freshly pressed

For the piña colada:
2 ounces white rum, such as Banks 5 Island Rum
3/4 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice
1 1/2 ounces coconut cream
1 ounce pineapple juice, freshly pressed
1/4 ounces spiced pineapple syrup
1 pineapple leaf
2 Luxardo maraschino cherries
Nutmeg, freshly grated

Directions

  1. Make the spiced pineapple syrup: In a sauce pot on medium heat, simmer 1/2 a cup of water with black pepper. Once it's simmering, add the rest of the water, sugar, vanilla beans, and star anise, and bring to a boil. Boil until sugar is melted, and then let cool. Once cooled, add fresh pineapple juice.
  2. Make the cocktail: Combine all of the ingredients in a shaker and dry-shake.
  3. Pour into a tall glass filled with crushed ice. Swizzle to chill and then top with more crushed ice.
  4. Garnish with a pineapple leaf, cherries, and freshly grated nutmeg.
