Amaretto Colada

Day 160

Amaretto Colada
4 shots out of 5

Amaretto Colada is the perfect blended cocktail using rum, amaretto and pineapple juice.

It's hot.  

It's Tuesday.  

The little one had a set of immunizations yesterday........and she's cranky.  So is mom.  That must mean it's time for tonight's cocktail!  No, it definitely means that!!

I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5.  

I have had this one pinned on my Pinterest board for quite some time now.  Tonight was the night to make it!  My pin led me here.  

I blended up this cocktail and had everything except for the whipping cream so I substituted it with the closest thing I had, milk.  I can absolutely taste the amaretto the most in this cocktail (hence the name).  

It's a little overpowering in some sips......then in other sips it gets a little better and I taste more of the cream of coconut.  Regardless, this is a pretty enjoyable cocktail.

I absolutely do enjoy blended cocktail on warm nights.....or sort of warm nights.......even cold ones will do!
