Cheers Sippin Gypsy Team Rum! This post comes to you while enjoying the BEST Pina Colada cocktail I've ever had from The Nest Bar in the Lake Baldwin neighborhood of Orlando FL! Check out all my tips for Orlando and Central Florida HERE.
I had one Pina Colada once when I first turned 21 at some pool bar on vacation. I thought it was horrible, way too sweet and not refreshing... It took the better part of a decade and a lot of well crafted cocktails to understand why I didn't like that first and only Pina Colada... Cocktails shouldn't be poured out of a box and come from a noisy machine where it sits for several days...
The Nest Bar already impressed me with knowledgeable bartenders who love their craft and take time to blend fresh ingredients into a well balanced cocktail....it was here I gave enough trust to once again try a cocktail I thought I had sworn off for life...
So. Glad. I. Did. The Pina Colada conjured up by Daniel was what the Pina Colada should've always been. Well done Nest Bar and mixologist extraordinaire Daniel! You crafted a beautiful Pina Colada and my new standard for refreshing vacation cocktails! Cheers!
