I think Coco Loco and Pina Colada are, or were, the same drink...pineapple juice, coconut "milk," and rum.  It just depended on what sort of shell they were served in...the little bodega where we went gave us a choice of whether we wanted the drink served in a carved out pineapple (with plenty of pineapple still attached to the shell...saves rum that way) or a coconut shell...I hate coconut, but my roomie liked it so we got the same drink, but she had hers served in a coconut.  And, of course we could take the "containers" with us.  Rum-marinated pineapple was very tasty the next day for a snack...(we had a small fridge in our room.)

Coco Loco  (Another great way to use pineapple juice.)

A great way to have pina colada's, Sk8eycat.  When I was on vacation in Puerto Vallarta years ago we drank coco loco's poolside served by hot and sexy Javier.  Coco loco is rum and what not served inside a coconut shell.  Very potent.

The best pineapple I ever tasted was in Mexico City in 1960.  It was semi-hollowed out and ...full of pina colada...heavy on the rum.  That was decades before pina coladas became popular here (and were served in glasses...BFD)

Felaine, you have a sick sense of humor. Which is one of the reasons I like you so much. Tom Lehrer is one my favorites. "We'll murder them all with laughter and merriment. Except for the few we take home to experiment."

Puttering in the garden, pausing at a strawberry bed, raspberry patch, blueberry bush, and nibbling as I go, throughout the season, is about as fine a summer as I can have. I eschew the boat rides, drives up and down dusty roads, picnics in the parks. I know, I am an old lady who likes my creature comforts, in my straw hats, baggy pants, rose-cutting gloves up to my elbows, and a bucket of tools that follows me like a shadow. Paradise!

When it comes to fruit, I pretty much love it all.  There's nothing like a freshly cut, juicy pineapple.  Yes, it's very acidic, so a little goes a long way.......but oh, the taste!  

Thanksgiving dinner just wouldn't be complete without cranberry sauce.  And I agree that cranberry/orange is indeed a fabulous combination for muffins, Sk8eycat.

Joan, can't say I've ever had the pleasure of pickled moose nose. Though, I did eat a pig snout salad once in France. Sliced thin, and if your stacked the meat correctly, you could recreate the nostrils. I actually have to say it pretty good, on top of a bed of greens with a nice vinaigrette, and glass of white wine. I also had horse once. Texture was fine, but the taste was a little too much on the sweet side for me.

Pat, I ate muktuk, uguruk and pickled moose nose in Alaska.

I asked an Athabascan friend if there were any foods of my culture he did not like. He quickly said, "mayonnaise" without any hesitations. He said it tasted awful and felt slimy.

OK! that is about how I would describe his favorite muktuk, uguruk and pickled moose nose. I didn't know at the time of botulism in fermented meat and the incident rate of poisoning of Native peoples.
