good pina coladas, not from bar mix?

I'm having memories of a decadent pina colada in Barbados,involving fresh pineapple juice, fresh cream of coconut and dark rum.

Can anyone recommend a bar or restaurant serving a good pina colada in Toronto?

  1. Sadly so few responses to this post on such a yummy drink!! I'll step in and say why not try Sidecar -- they seem to be great drink mixers focused on natural ingredients from what I can tell from postings on CH -- could be worth a try (sadly I have not tried pina coladas there). Sorry for the non-expert opinion but I thought I'd at least throw out the idea!

      Thanks for the suggestion, Arcadiaseeker;)
      I checked out their cocktail list
      I don't see pina colada mentioned, but I might email them to see if they would make one. I do want to try their spicy ginger lemonade that's listed as a cocktail ;)

        Sadly its the Barbados piece of the equation that might be tricky to replicate :(

          I love the cocktails at Sidecar, but the spicy ginger lemonade is not nearly as good as I was hoping it would be. It was spicy and gingery, but not very lemonade-y. I think I would have liked a hit of simple syrup to sweeten it up just a touch. On the other hand, all the other cocktails I've had have been excellent.
