Ever since returning to the states on May 26, I've been missing my CSS pina colada. I've tried and tried but for the life of me, I can't come close to duplicating it! The CSS one was so coconutty, where as everything I'm making here tastes like pineapple and sugar water. I'm using coconut cream and pineapple juice. The card on the bar did say milk, but I'm reluctant to add milk! I shoulda asked a bartender. Part of me thinks that the problem might be that here in the US everything has so much sugar and junk and I'll never even get remotely close.
get the sweetened coconut cream in a can, a decent splash of pineapple, a small splash of cream or milk. a lot of rum. i believe in jamaica they use both coconut rum and regular. also a spash of triple sec. a teaspoon or so of sugar to taste.
i used to be a bartender. good luck
