A refined take on the pina colada from The Ponte bar in LA.
After doing some digging for pina colada variations I found this great take from The Ponte bar in LA. The Expat takes a traditional pina colada and shakes things up with fino and Oloroso sherry for sweetness and some Lazzaroni amaro to give it just a bit of bitterness. The result is a wonderful take on a classic.
1 oz. Over-proof rum (such as Plantation O.F.T.D)
½ oz. Lazzaroni Amaro
½ oz. Fino sherry
¼ oz. Oloroso sherry
1 ½ oz. Fresh pineapple juice
½ oz. Lime juice
1 oz. Coco Lopez cream of coconut
Fill a tiki mug with crushed ice and set aside. Add all the ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice cubes. Shake, and strain into the prepared glass.
