Coconut Flavoured

A Delia Smith 'Cheat' Ingredient.

Pina Colada recipe using Coco lopez.

2 shots Coco Lopez Real Cream of Coconut, 2 shots Pineapple Juice 1.5 shots Rum 1 cup ice

Mix in blender until smooth.

The heart of the coconut had long been an important ingredient in many delicious desserts from the tropical islands. The problem was that getting the coconut cream from the pulp was easier said than done. Don Ramon Lopez Irizarry set out to find an easier way of doing this.

In his small laboratory in Puerto Rico, he developed the original Coco Lopez by blending the delicious cream from the hearts of Caribbean coconuts with the exact proportion of natural cane sugar.

Suddenly Coco Lopez became the basis for a fabulous tropical drink called "Pina Colada" which made its first appearance in 1954. Quite a few bartenders and part-time mixers claim to be the inventors of the "Official Beverage of Puerto Rico." Either way, there's no doubt that the unique combination of Coco Lopez Cream of Coconut, pineapple juice and Puerto Rican Rum is the most refreshing tropical cocktail you'll ever have.

In fact, only the original Coco Lopez Cream of Coconut meets the necessary conditions of flavour and consistency to prepare the perfect Pina Colada!

Tourists that came to Puerto Rico and tasted the Coco Lopez Pina Colada loved it so much they took Coco Lopez home so they could continue to enjoy "The Taste of the Tropics." Today, Coco Lopez has expanded its distribution into 50 countries including Europe, Japan, Central America and the United States.
