Let’s face it. Piña coladas are the equivalent of adult slurpees or adult milk shakes — they are delicious, creamy, and taste like heaven. Plus it makes it easier to pretend you're on a tropical island, enjoying a vacation. Try making The Rum House’s signature colada, The Escape, at home with this simple recipe.

Rum Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Rum Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
