Today we are mixing up a variation on one of my special cheat treat cocktails that I only allow myself to drink on special occasions. The Piña Colada is a classic tiki cocktail that has made waves since its conception in 1954 in Puerto Rico. It took a while to take off but once it did there were bars on sunny beaches all over the world serving up these delicious cocktails. Today I made some simple substitutions and came up with a blueberry version because I love that I can get blueberries all year round so there is no time of year I can’t make this drink. I left out the pineapple and replaced the citrus zing with some lime juice and the delicious Monin Blueberry syrup was all I needed to finish off this masterpiece.
