Pina Coladas

As I reach for my Pina Colada I am transfixed to another place.  With the first sip comes the cool ocean waves rushing upon the shore, cascading over my toes that are shallowly dug in the sand.  I reach up to shade my eyes with my wide-brimmed sun hat and readjust my bikini top, so that I can lean back into my beach chair and relax.  I am just breathing in the sweet and salty ocean air.  Completely content.  With the second drink I am dancing across the sand as the sunsets.  Wiggling this and shaking that with some dark-skinned man, who's name is Rich but goes by Ricardo on this island.  There is a bomb fire to our right and the dark crashing ocean to our left.  And we are somewhere in between sensing and absorbing everything and nothing but each other all at the same time.  And, oh wait, my drink is gone and I am sitting on the porch listening to Rich telling me about some fish and what it did with his jig.  Oh well, a girl can dream right?

3 oz. of clear coconut rum (I used Margartaville's Premium Coconut Rum)
3 oz. of spiced rum (I used Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum)
1 cup of cream of coconut or coconut milk (cream of coconut is thicker and better)
1 cup of pineapple juice
1 tray of ice
a couple maraschino cherries and a teeny tiny splash of their juice (very important)
fresh strawberries for garnish

-Combine both rums, cream of coconut, pineapple juice and the ice in your blender.  Blend until smooth.  Pour into glasses, top with 2 cherries, a tiny splash of cherry juice and a strawberry on top.  Makes 4.  Enjoy!
