That pretty much is a pina colada.

Sort of. More pineappley because there's no coconut cream. Also, it's not a frozen drink as I can't handle those - brain freeze from the first sip.

I very rarely drink in the UK.
My father in law makes 60+ proof Rakia, he then goes into the woods and collects bits of tree, herbs and a strange looking fungus. This he chops up a put in some of the Rakia, after allowing it to mature for a min of 2 minutes it is called Travarica the Balkans breakfast tonic.

I swear by it.

That sounds interesting

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt
