Since having a pina colada for breakfast is frowned upon, I threw together this delicious variation with some tangy orange syrup to go with it. If I had any pineapple in the house, I would have made pineapple syrup instead! The family quite enjoyed it.

A sweet fresh way to start your day! This french toast is amazing and super easy to make. With very little effort, the ingredients provide a punch of flavor. Coating the bread with an egg custard that includes pina colada mix is genius and delicious. The flavor is very tropical. Orange syrup drizzled on top is the perfect touch. We dressed up the french toast based on Teresa's recommendations and it was fabulous. The perfect breakfast for a lazy Saturday morning but it's also fancy enough for a special occasion.
