This tropical 1950's original recipe never needed any 'improvements'. It is a perfect blend of rum and coconut sweetness without any of the syrup-y taste of the mixes.



2 cups fresh ice

2 ounces white rum

1 ounce coconut cream

1 ounce heavy whipping cream

6 ounces fresh pineapple juice


  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and pulse or mix until evenly blended
  2. Pour into a hurricane glass
  3. Add a wedge of fresh pineapple and cherry for garnish


If you prefer to skip the alcohol, leave out the rum and serve as a Virgin Colada

If you don't feel like blending, you can use a cocktail shaker to mix this drink--just remember to shake for at least 30 seconds to ensure it is properly chilled and aerated
