  • 4 maraschino cherries

  • Pour the piña colada mixture into cocktail glasses and top with sweetened whipped cream.
  • Garnish your piña coladas with a maraschino cherry and pineapple slice.

Notes

To store: if you're making this ahead of time, store the mixture in a freezer safe container in the freezer. Stir the mixture every 15 minutes to create a "slushie" consistency. 
To Make Virgin Piña Coladas:
   Omit the rum and replace it with 1/2-1 cup of cold water. Blend as instructed. 
For a lighter coconut flavor:
   Use 7 1/2 ounces of cream of coconut instead of the full can.
