Pina Colada Punch|
This potent punch is a summer favorite. Quick and easy to prepare, it makes a nice change from typical summer punches, and is definitely easier than whipping up individual pina coladas all night long. The pineapple juice cubes keep the drink cold without diluting the flavor, but if you are pressed for time, just use all ice cubes.
3 1/2 cups chilled unsweetened pineapple juice, divided
8 ounces chilled cream of coconut
1 1/2 chilled cups rum
1 cup ice cubes
Freeze one cup of the pineapple juice in an ice cube tray at least a day before making the punch. In a large blender combine 1 1/4 cups juice, 4 ounces cream of coconut, 3/4 cup rum, 1/2 cup pineapple ice cubes, and 1/2 cup ice cubes and puree until smooth and frothy. Pour the mixture into a large pitcher or small punch bowl. Place the remaining pineapple juice, cream of coconut, and rum into the blender and mix until smooth. Add to the pitcher or punch bowl along with the remaining pineapple juice cubes and ice cubes. Mix well and serve cold.
