Día Colada

Share Cocktail Recipe

The Día Colada is a refreshing tequila take on the classic piña colada with a surprising tropical curry kick. It’s complex and ultra-indulgent. The rich coconut cream soothes and in combination with the pineapple creates a frothy texture and cooling sensation. The juicy sweetness of the passion fruit complements the vanilla and cooked agave flavours of the tequila. The sour citrus flavours brighten and add a gentle bitterness. This cocktail is a celebration of indulgence and is meant to be like a vacation for your taste buds.

Día Colada Ingredients

2 ½ oz cada día tequila reposado
¼ oz overproof rum
1 oz red curry simple syrup *
6 chunks of pineapple
1 ½ oz coconut cream
½ oz passion fruit juice
½ oz lime juice
¾ cup ice

*Red Curry Simple Syrup

½ cup water
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon red curry paste
1 oz vodka to preserve

Add all ingredients except vodka to a pot and heat on high. As soon as it reaches a rolling boil remove from heat, add vodka and let cool. Strain through cheesecloth and pour into a glass bottle and store in the fridge.

Día Colada Directions

1. Add all ingredients to a blender and combine until smooth (this works even better if you crush your ice slightly in a Lewis ice bag before blending).
2. Pour cocktail into desired glass with a reusable cocktail straw.
3. Garnish with pineapple fronds and any other fun ingredients you have at home. Pictured here are kumquats sliced in half and edible flowers. Enjoy!
