The classic piña colada cocktail may be brimming with calories and sugar, but the flavors—tropical coconut and refreshing pineapple—perfectly complement a day by the pool or a backyard barbecue. So what’s a guy to do?
Blend up this better-for-you, whisky-based “monkey colada,” which is made using Monkey Shoulder Whisky, fresh pineapple puree, coconut rum, coconut water, and a dash of fresh lime juice. It’s refreshing, naturally sweet, and most important, it won’t ruin your six-pack.
