Sipping cocktails and wearing a swimsuit on the beach...two of the things so many of us love to do in the heat of summer. Did you know that the average 8 oz. colada weighs in at ~640 calories? Yikes. While I prefer to just ignore that fact, Esteban Ordoñez (DonQ’s Head of Mixology) made it so that I could ignore it and not care by developing these "skinnier" versions of the summertime favorite Piña Colada.
