Piña Coladas are a quintessential summer cocktail, but are NOT always a girl’s best friend. For example an 8-ounce piña colada that gets served up at a poolside bar can pack 640 calories. That’s a 100 calories more than a Quarter Pounder with Cheese. Not exactly a beach-worthy accessory. So, can you still enjoy a cocktail and have a bikini body? Of course! Thanks to DonQ’s head mixologiest Esteban Ordoñez. He has slimmed down the piña colada recipe for an on the rocks and blended version. The results are just as refreshing and they’re the perfect low-calorie cocktail to celebrate summer!
