I made a pilgrimage to back in 1968…
heard they made the best pina coladas.
.
My friend Kathy and I wanted the recipe
our hubby’s didn’t let us go alone!..
She talked the bartender into making a batch from fresh ingredients
… newly opened cans… so we could eye ball the amount.
As he made them,
she checked the ingredients,
and I wrote them down. Johnny Carson.\

The bartender was specific to the DOLE pineapple chunks,
Barcardi white Rum
and CoCo Lopez creamed coconut
(that’s an easy one.. it was the only one ! )

I saw a version that froze the pineapple chunks
(they used crushed) with a sparing of crushed ice
