pina colada

pina colada’s have been one of my favourite cocktails forever!! i’m pretty sure the first proper cocktail i had was a pina colada, not a great one it was made by my 17 year old best friend, but it didn’t matter i loved the combination of pineapple and coconut. i usually only have them once or twice a year i tend to favourite light fruity cocktails or an old fashioned (my go to cocktail).

red wine & mustard beef cheeks with garlic marscapone mash
