Bailey’s Colada

On a recent trip to Panama City Beach, we discovered “Banana Bailey’s Coladas.” All of our colada days will never be the same! Here’s how to make it:


  • 1 fresh Banana or Banana liquor (optional)
  • 1 can of Coco Lopez Cream of Coconut*
  • Irish Cream liquor, we prefer Bailey’s
  • Pineapple Juice*
  • Milk
  • Ice

*In place of the Coco Lopez and Pineapple Juice, you can use a ready-made Pina Colada mix, we suggest Daily’s.


  1. We make this drink in “parts” using the cap from the top of the blender, or other measuring cup.
    • 4 parts Coco Lopez
    • 3 parts Pineapple Juice
    • 2 parts Bailey’s
    • (optional) 1 part Banana Liquor and/or 1 fresh Banana
  2. Place “parts” in blender, fill blender with ice and blend until smooth. Use a small amount of Milk, Pina Colada mix, or Pineapple Juice to loosen the mixture if necessary.
  3. Garnish cups with a sugar rim, or pineapple slice.

We have made this with and without the banana. Both ways are delicious!
