  1. These cocktails look great. Do you have any cocktail recipes that don’t include alcohol? Or do you have something to substitute alcohol in these recipes?

    1. Hi Robin. The beverage recipes that I have on my website that do not necessariily include alcohol are the Trinidadian sorrel ( https://bluejeanchef.com/recipes/trinidadian-sorrel/ ), Dad’s Tea Punch ( https://bluejeanchef.com/recipes/dads-tea-fruit-punch/ ), and Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade ( https://bluejeanchef.com/recipes/sparkling-raspberry-lemonade/ ). When I’m going alcohol free in cocktails, however, I often turn to a non-alcoholic spirit called Seedlip. They have different flavors and they are quite tasty! The one called Garden 108 is particularly nice in a cucumber gin and tonic! You can read more about Seedlip here: https://seedlipdrinks.com/uk/ and you can find them here in the US.

    We lived in the Caribbean for about 4 years, many years ago and my drink of choice was the Pina Colada, mostly without the rum as a smoothie. I was pretty good at making them.
    If you don’t want the alcohol just leave out the rum and don’t change anything else. (There are good smooth rums, like Cruzan Rum, and and other rums that are really “strong”.)
    I was glad to see that you used Coco Lopez Cream of Coconut as I do. (I pour the whole can into the blender first, and blend before starting, and then pour what I am using into a measuring cup, storing the rest. That seems to work better than shaking the can.) In the Islands we used pineapple syrup, which had a more definite flavor, not pineapple juice. Now I use pineapple topping like you would use on ice cream. I use equal amounts of Coco Lopez and pineapple topping. Start with the liquids first and slowly add the ice. The drink will be runny at first but as you keep blending, the ice will “refreeze” and you will have a smoothie.

  3. I made this, but instead of rum I used Baileys Colada. It’s new and delicious. You should try it. Yummy!

  4. Your pina colado recipe is yummy….I’ve modified it a bit to suite my living conditions…..I use a small blender and add crushed ice and chunks of pineapple to the mix. Turn it on and in fifteen or twenty seconds….a yummy pina colado…..thanks

    PS. I love your knives
