• This is the ultimate drink for summer! And of course, we cannot help singing…

    “If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain
    If you´re not into yoga, if you have half a brain
    If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape
    I´m the love that you´ve looked for, write to me, and escape”

    Sunshine piña colada jug

    Serves: 4
    Total Time: 20 mins + 1 hr, to chill


    • 1 pineapple (about 450g), peeled and chopped
    • juice of 4 limes
    • 250ml (1 cup) coconut milk
    • 200ml white grape juice
    • 60 – 150ml white rum, to taste
    • ice, to serve
    • mint leaves, to garnish (optional)



    Place the chopped pineapple, fresh lime juice, coconut milk, grape juice and white rum in a high-powered blender and blitz until very smooth. Taste the mixture and add a little more rum... if you dare!


    Refrigerate the jug until ready to serve, then present in glasses with loads of ice and add mint leaves, to garnish, if desired.
