Amaretto Colada

Day 160

Amaretto Colada
4 shots out of 5

Did you know that April 19th is National Amaretto Day??  What better way to celebrate then with an Amaretto Colada??

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!
