Cook the Issue 2010: Chi Chi Pache

By Pielove, member

This was just the thing for a muggy Chicago evening.  The vodka made it lighter than the typical pina colada and the cinnamon and allspice gave it an interesting flavor-- more sophisticated than just pineapple and coconut cream.  I didn't spring for a bottle of pimento dram-- too expensive and hard to find-- so I just added some grated allspice with the cinnamon.  Tasty!  Also the pineapple juice was a bit hit with my daughter, who Loves! Little! Paper! Umbrellas!!

I've heard you can make your own pimiento dram by infusing rum with allspice--here's a link to an example:
Though adding grated allspice probably gets you pretty close with about a tenth of the work!

So if it works for you in Chicago, it certainly will work here in hot humid NC.
