For everyone else, here is a little something I picked up at one of my birthday gifts (a cocktail making class!) - the best summery Vanilla Piña Colada ever:
Vanilla Piña Colada:
3cl Coconut sirup
6cl dark rum
1 scoop vanilla ice cream
1 dash lime juice
6cl pinapple juice
Put everything into a shaker with lots of big ice cubes and shake for 20s. Strain and serve in a chilled glass with a piece of pineapple.
The even more awesome version uses fresh, juicy pinapple instead of juice and is blended in a blender with crushed ice for about 20s...
