Zombie Colada


My friend Daniele dalla Pola remembered me that today is the Piña Colada Day and I need to make something special for today. The people that knows me a bit knows that I’m not the typical Piña Colada drinker, I always share my Big Kahuna Colada with the whole world, assuring that it’s the strongest brother of the Piña Colada…but today I want to share something similar but a bit different, a drink on my palate’s profile…the Piña Colada that a Zombie drinker could love…a fusion between the Zombie and the Piña Colada…Why not?
