Cream of Coconut

This is the not so secret ingredient in a great Piña Colada. I'm only calling it secret because it's not easy to find... and it's confusing because you can buy things that sound the same but definitely are not. For example – coconut cream makes a terrible PC. Cream of coconut is like condensed milk, thick, syrupy and sweet. You only need a bit in the mix to make it perfect. I found this can at Lively Life, downstairs at the market.

So far the best result combined crushed ice, cream, frozen pineapple, pineapple juice, coconut cream and white rum. Blend until smooth and then top with a splash of dark rum.

Didn't you just say coconut cream makes a horrible PC?
