pina_colada

Vampire Piña Colada

Yields: 2

Prep Time: 5 mins

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons light corn syrup
4 drops red food color
1 pouch (10 oz) frozen piña colada (with alcohol)


Directions:

1. Pour corn syrup into small shallow dish. Add food color; mix with toothpick until combined. Dip rim of cocktail glass in mixture, gently turning to create “bloody” rim. Repeat with second glass.

2. Cut top off pouch; pour piña colada into glasses. Serve immediately.

Notes: Look for the premixed piña colada pouches in the wine and beer section of the grocery store or big-box store, or already frozen in the freezer section. If desired, take the pouch out of the freezer for a few minutes before serving so it’s a little more slushy. Make a spooky margarita by substituting a pouch of frozen margarita for the piña colada mix.
