叫《 Piña Colada 》。
其意思是過濾了的菠蘿。這款雞尾酒是用新鮮菠蘿，加濃甜椰奶油和兩種蘭姆酒 Rum， 和冰塊，放進攪拌器裏拌勻。隔著調酒的過瀘器倒進盛了一半冰的高杯內，襯以菠蘿塊，用長飲管進飲。
I fell in love with the tropically - flavored cocktail " Piña Colada" during a visit to Spain many years ago.
The name literally translated means " strained pineapple ". It's made with the sweetened cream of coconut, pineapple juice, cracked ice cubes plus two types of Rum. All mixed in a blender together, strained and served over some more cracked ice cubes in a tall glass; finally garnished with a pineapple wedge.
A young family of 4 all those years ago, our son was only 7, our daughter was 5.
飲品或加在甜品上的無糖椰奶 coconut milk ，代替通常加入雞
尾酒中脂肪較高和混了糖的甜椰奶油 cream of coconut。
I found that it was very easy to become addicted to drinks like this, with its deliciously sweet and refreshing flavour. Luckily, a very kind local bartender suggested and mixed a lighter version of the same cocktail for me to try. It contained no added sugar, and he used a suitable for drinking / adding to desserts coconut milk, instead of the sweetened cream of coconut; the calorie contents were reduced considerably, and I've stuck to this recipe / formula every time when I ask for a " Piña Colada " .

Lighten Up Piña Colada
( serves 1 )
- 1 tall glass full of cracked ice cubes
- Cocktail tool kit
- White rum
- Malibu coconut - flavoured rum
- A can of suitable for drinking, adding to desserts coconut milk
- Pineapple juice
- Fresh pineapple wedges to decorate ( The simplest way to open and cut pineapple chunks is shown in this post ).
- 如上圖左下。搖動杯內先加入半杯碎冰，然後用份量杯把 1 份的 white rum ，1 份的 Malibu，4 份菠蘿汁， 2 份椰奶倒進。
- As above bottom left photo. Put half glass of cracked ice cube into a cocktail shaker. Pour 1 measure white rum, 1 measure Malibu, 4 measures pineapple juice, 2 measures coconut milk over the ice.
- Close the lids tight, then shake vigorously until a frost forms. Half - fill a chilled tall glass with cracked ice cubes and strain the cocktail over them. Decorate with a fresh pineapple slice and place a long straw inside the glass.
- 蘭姆酒 rum 與菠蘿汁及椰奶的比例，可隨喜愛加減。但因為 rum 是烈酒，不要過份。Malibu 的酒精含量是21%。White rum 則是 35 % 以上。所以如每種酒類飲品，一杯起兩杯止便是最好的了。
A little reminder :
- The proportion to mix rum, coconut milk and pineapple juice is up to individual preferences. But since rum is a kind of spirits it possesses alcohol by volume (alc /vol ) of 21 - 40%, so try not to over - indulge with it. One or two glasses of cocktails each time should be the limit.
Some of my English speaking friends have occasionally asked me to translate the blog posts and the recipes, so they could read it too. Therefore I am experimenting with adding English along side the Chinese writing, I would really like to hear your opinion on this, do you think it's too distracting?
