Clarified Piña Colada

This recipe makes 4 cocktails and comes from Jon & Siobhan, @subtletiki. We take the classic Piña Colada and clarify it, changing the flavor, appearance, and mouthfeel.

Milk washing is a unique drink clarifying technique where you combine a stirred cocktail with whole milk and then strain through coffee filters to create an impressive, transparent version of that drink.

Any cocktail with fresh, acidic juice can be clarified by milk washing, so you can really run wild with this one.
