Ready, Set, Blend!

A traditional Pina Colada. Give the Melon Colada a try for an exotic green drink.

National Piña Colada Day took place this past weekend and you can bet I was entertaining with friends and Piña Coladas (and, yes, we actually got caught up in the rain on Saturday…).

Now that the holiday has come and gone for another year, I had some fun thinking of variations to this tropical treat. Here is a fun twist to the classic which nixes the coconut flavor. The Melon Colada has a vibrant green color, and imparts the fresh aroma of juicy, ripe honeydew melons.

The best part? The Melon Colada certainly doesn’t need any accompanying holiday. Just add surf, sand, and sunshine to enjoy this blended drink recipe all summer long.

Melon Colada
1 part Hiram Walker Melon Liqueur
1 part Malibu rum
1 part Pineapple juice
1 part Colada Mix

Blend with crushed ice and serve in a hurricane glass.

Cheers!
