ISO Pina Coloda

Does anyone have a TNT pina coloda recipe? I usually use the mix stuff bought from the store and want to try one from "scratch".

Thanks!

I wish I knew amounts but here's what I do -

Fill up blender with ice, pour in about the same amount of rum and pineapple juice, add about 1/3 can of CoCo Lopez (this is the sweetened kind) and blend well. You can also add some crushed pineapple - taste to see if it needs more CoCo Lopez. Serve with a pineapple wedge. Then call me to come taste it

I do it pretty much the same way as Kitchenelf, but the only difference is that I just take a can of pineapple rings and add the whole thing, juice and rings, to the blender. Occasionally I will also add a little Grand Marnier, but I don't do that often.
