Cranberry gives the piña colada a tart twist that's perfect for sipping through the holiday season

'Tis the season for all things cranberry, and what better way to give your piña colada a holiday feel than to infuse it with tart cranberry juice?

Cranberry gives this piña colada just a bit of tartness that's countered by the sweet pineapple juice. And cream of coconut is the perfect complement to both flavors and gives this cocktail its classic tropical taste.

The cranberry juice turns this frozen drink a light pink color that contrasts nicely with the fresh cranberries used as garnish.
