These are delicious pina colada recipes. I really enjoy this cocktail outside on a warm evening sitting on a deck and relaxing.
Having a party? You need to make the slush below. It's so handy because it is already made. Just add a glass and lemon lime soda.
On a hot summer day, you just can't beat this tasty creamy coconut concoction. Beat the heat now. Yum.
You may need to double this recipe. Just saying.
PINA COLADA SLUSH RECIPE
3 cans (6 ounces each) unsweetened pineapple juice
2 cups water
1 can (10 ounces) frozen non-alcoholic pina colada mix
1 TBS lime juice
1 tub sugar-free lemonade soft drink mix
6 cups 7up or Sprite, chilled
In a large bowl, combine the pineapple juice, water, pina colada mix, lime juice and soft drink mix; stir until drink mix is dissolved. Transfer to a 3-qt. freezer container. Freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight.
Remove from the freezer 45 minutes before serving.
For each serving, combine 1/2 cup slush mixture with 1/2 cup lemon-lime soda. You can make it as strong or as weak as you like. Yield: 12 servings (3 quarts).

For a virgin pina colada, just omit the rum.
