1/4 teaspoon red
food coloring, plus more for rims
20 ounces pineapple juice
1 fifteen-ounce can cream of coconut
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup orange juice
10 ounces good-quality rum (optional)
|1. To coat rims, pour corn syrup into a shallow bowl. Dip a toothpick
into food coloring, and stir a very small amount into corn syrup to
combine. Hold a glass by the stem, dip rim into the syrup mixture, and
turn glass, coating entire rim. Turn the glass upright, allowing mixture
to drip down sides. Dip the remaining glasses. Set aside.
2. In a bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients, including 1/4
teaspoon red food coloring. Place 2 1/2 cups ice cubes in a blender, and
add 1 cup drink mixture. Blend until smooth; add more pineapple juice if
mixture is too thick. Repeat with remaining drink mixture and ice.
Carefully pour into prepared glasses; serve.
