July 10 is the official National Pina Colada Day! What better time to stir up a batch and envision a Caribbean beach even if you can’t be there in person.

There’s nothing like a Pina Colada that puts one in total vacation mode whether it comes in the form of a cocktail or popsicle — as long as it is icy for this hot time of the year.

Something about the flavors of pineapple and coconut says it’s time to leave the worries behind. Some won’t make it to the beach this year, but they can whip up a batch of deliciousness that helps escape life’s everyday challenges for just a bit.

To make Pina Colada popsicles to enjoy any time for a mini-vacation this summer, mix 1 1/2 cups pineapple juice with 1 1/2 cups coconut milk and pour in to popsicle molds. Freeze until firm, about four hours. Enjoy!
