This version of the Pina Colada Cocktail is easy to make as you only need 3 ingredients.

What's more, two of them come from a can and one from a bottle. This means you can have the ingredients at the ready at any time!

There are many versions of this fruity coconut and pineapple drink, which comes from Puerto Rico.

Legend has it that a Puerto Rican pirate boosted his crew's morale with this coconut, pineapple and white rum drink.

Pina Colada still has that tropical kick, so just a sip can transport you to the mood of summer island holidays.
