The Cosmic Colada: a tequilified take on the classic Piña Colada recipe

This take on the Piña Colada is tall, refreshing, and given a Cosmic kick with New England IPA and an extra touch of 1800 Coconut.


It's summer time. We've all had a rough year. And whilst you might not be able to flee to an island — because, wouldn't that just be perfect — we think this take on the Piña Colada from bartender Mikey Braun might just be the next best thing.

Braun is serving up this Cosmic Colada at Bodriggy Brewpub in Abbotsford, Melbourne, and to put it simply: it's a tall glass of delicious. You might not think that a New England IPA and 1800 Coconut Tequila would work, but you would be wrong. When paired with pineapple, lime, and coconut cream, the result is a drink tailor-made for summertime drinking.

Get a look at the recipe below and hear from Braun himself as to why this is a drink he could sip on at any time of the day.
