If you are like most people who have an ice cream maker you don't use it as much as you would like. It requires a little planning to have a frozen insert ready for ice cream since the ones we are aware of require at least 12 hours to properly freeze. But we just happen to have one ready since we are in the middle of a heatwave. So we decided to try making a frozen cocktail.

We have made the Piña Colada a few times already, and if you have fresh ingredients around it is a very refreshing cocktail. Having one out at a bar or restaurant may leave something to be desired but making one at home - not from a bottle, is the best way to go.

This time we did not have any rum around so we just used whiskey, and it turned out great.


Place about 2 cups of fresh, or canned pineapple in the blender with the cocunut milk, banana, whiskey and simple syrup. Blend until well mixed.

Strain to get the pulp from the pineapple out. Then chill for an hour or two.

Place the mix in an ice cream maker for about 20 - 30 minutes.

Pour into a cocktail glass.

You can add ice but at this stage it is cold and thick like ice cream.
