Dave is especially tired of the cold. It might have something to do with all the wood he has to carry in every day. He decided he wanted to have a summer theme for Superbowl Sunday. We are planning on ribs on the grill (it is supposed to be only -2), corn on the cob, baked beans and Piña Coladas. These just taste like summer, fruity from the pineapple juice, creamy from the coconut cream, and cold, blended with ice for a frosty finish and rum to warm you from the inside out. We are dreaming of summer and if you sit close enough to the wood stove, close your eyes and sip your drink, you can almost believe it is close.
2 measures white rum
1 measure dark rum
3 measures pineapple juice
2 measures coconut cream
pineapple wedges to decorate
Mix crushed ice in a blender with the rum, pineapple juice and coconut cream until smooth. Pour into a tall chilled glass and dress with the pineapple wedge.
