Next Best Thing to Lulu's Pina Colada

Next Best Thing to Lulu's Pina Colada

Simon'sMom 1

"Jimmy Buffett's sister, Lulu, owns a very popular restaurant in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Lulu's serves the ABSOLUTE best Pina Colada in the world there! Here is the next best thing to one of hers! If you can't find the frozen mixer, 1/2 can coconut cream and enough pineapple juice to create a simulated 'can's worth' will work."

Best Pina Colada I've made...the ice cream makes it!

OMG! Unbelievable! This Pina Colada is the best I have ever had. A little work but sooooo worth it! Thank you for the fabulous recipe.

I tried this recipe last night and it was not very good. The recipe calls for whole bottle of Mango rum which makes the drink (basically) all rum. And, the mango rum flavor makes it taste weird....

Very tasty! Thank you for sharing!

Also did a version with brandy in place of rum, and a non alcohol version with a banana. Very good

my bf hates pina coladas....not anymore. Sooooo good!
