PLT Dolls Do National Pina Colada Day

11 | 07 | 2018

Yes, we know it’s the beginning of the week and you’re probably still recovering from the weekend, but this post is here to celebrate one of our fave days of the year, National Pina Colada Day!

PLT Dolls Do National Pina Colada Day

To honour this classic cocktail we mixed up our usual PLT Dolls dinner to a fun and fab cocktail class. See below how our dolls got on and other twists on the classic Pina Colada recipe that are sure to take your taste buds to a tropical paradise.

 

First up, we asked our PLT Dolls Cindy, Effy and Chloe a few cocktail related questions…

 

What’s your go-to cocktail to sip on when you’re “out” out?

Cindy: Porn star no doubt.

Effy: I usually go for a tito’s vodka soda! There’s minimal sugar so the hangover isn’t so bad 🙂 if I’m feeling adventurous I’ll go for a spicy margarita.

Chloe: A classic Mojito.

 

Do you have a signature cocktail that you’re really good at making at home?

Cindy: I have never made a cocktail 😔 but I could probably do a Virgin Mojito…

Effy: You’re more likely to catch me at home drinking wine straight out of the bottle. I’m a classy gal.

Chloe: A Strawberry Daiquiri!

 

If you were a cocktail what would you be and why? Tell us your cocktail name.

Cindy: My cocktail name would be called a “Sexy Cindy Lou” just because everyone calls me like that (very creative I know) and it’d be pink and full of berries – and vodka!

Effy: If I were a cocktail, I’d be a watermelon jalapeno vodka. I’m from Texas so I’d be called “The Yeehaw!”

Chloe:  I’d be an island spice because they’re spicy but sweet and I’m from a Caribbean island so it best described me 💁🏽‍♀🤷🏽‍♀🤦🏾‍♀😂😂
