Expert Tips

Look for the premixed piña colada pouches in the wine and beer section of the grocery store or big-box store, or already frozen in the freezer section. If desired, take the pouch out of the freezer for a few minutes before serving so it’s a little more slushy.

Make a spooky margarita by substituting a pouch of frozen margarita for the piña colada mix.
