    oh my Linda this sounds so good, I will have to give this a try. What is the pina colada mix?

    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
