Test Kitchen tips
  • We tested this recipe with Jarritos brand pineapple soda, which is surprisingly not as sweet tasting as traditional soda flavors. Other brands that make pineapple soda include Fanta, Crush, Sunkist, Goya and Canada Dry.
  • Whipped topping can be used in place of sweetened whipped cream.
  • Add a splash of rum to make this a grown-up pina colada float.
