  2. Eric Morales says

    The Piña Colada recipe is wrong
    coconut milk is the wrong way to make it
    I am from Puerto Rico the Homelanfd of Piña Colada , instead of coconut milk is cream of coconut.
    the sweet one, that is what makes the balance with the unsweetened pinaapple juice. the Milk of coconut is unsweet and when people try to make it taste awfull. Please correct the recipe of my national Drink, switch the 2oz of coconot milk for 2oz of sweet cream of coconut such “Coco Lopez”.
