The Font Feast Presents Strawberry Piña Coladas

 strawberry pina colada recipe

Piña coladas might possibly be my favorite thing to drink in the whole, wide world. When we go out for Mexican food, what do I order to go with my combination plate? A piña colada. If I’m lounging by a fancy resort pool in the tropics, what do I have the waiter charge to the room? A piña colada. Sipping on a cool, fruity drink while laying in the warm sun is pretty much the most delightful thing I can think of! With sunny weather here for good (fingers crossed), I can’t wait to enjoy these all summer long for cook-outs, family BBQs, afternoon snacks…

Super Tiki is the perfect font to go with these delicious Strawberry Piña Coladas. It’s fun, it’s tropical, and it’s got just the right amount of  retro kitsch. It looks like a Gidget movie, for crying out loud!
