THE COCKTAIL HOUR: Catalina Colada
I'm looking up calories for a pina colada and see this..."a pina colada has more calories than a Big Mac." At 644 calories per drink, yeah, that's pretty heavy. Unfortunately, I've got two colada drinkers in family, my wife and Tim. What to do?
Come up with my own.
Watch the Video!
With a little experimenting, most of which you can see on the video above, I did it. Here is my version of a pina colada. It tastes exactly like a regular one but only has 125 calories. If you like pina coladas...whether or not you like walking in the rain...you'll love this Catalina colada.
INGREDIENTS (one drink)
1 1/2 oz Malibu (or other coconut infused) rum
1/2 oz brandy
dash of bitters
1 oz pineapple juice
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
Pour rum and brandy into old fashioned glass. Mix in lime juice and a dash of bitters. Fill with ice. Pour in pineapple juice.
