Linda's notes for this recipe:
This is another good appetizer that we have enjoyed over the years. When my husband was in the military, we entertained a lot and this is one of the things that the young airmen loved to come to our house and eat. I hope you will enjoy it as well.

oh my Linda this sounds so good, I will have to give this a try. What is the pina colada mix?
user Linda Griffith sothernladee - May 21, 2011
It's found in the beer and wine section. It's the juice that you make pina coladas with but it doesn't have any liquor in it. I think it is coconut milk and pineapple juice. It comes in a bottle. I hope you will enjoy the recipe
