In honor of Mother's Day next weekend, today's Sunday Supper theme is "Mom's Favorite Recipes." My mom isn't a big fan of cooking, and even less a fan of baking. I've been asked on more than one occasion where my love of cooking and baking come from, and I really just don't know.

But one thing my mom does like making is cocktails, particularly of the tropical variety. My mom swears she was born in the wrong country. She loves everything tropical — steel drum music, tropical flavors, bright Caribbean colors. That's why, for my mom's favorite recipe, I chose a frozen pina colada.

It's really quite simple, once you collect all of the ingredients. Fresh and frozen pineapple are fairly easy to find. I found pineapple juice in the juice aisle of my store, near the children's juice boxes and bottles of apple juice. If your local grocery store has an international aisle, check there for the coconut cream.

Chilling the glasses in the freezer keeps the drink mixture colder longer. Wrap a napkin around the class to keep from cramping your muscles from the cold. Drop in a paper umbrella and slip on a faux lei to really bring the tropics home!
