Boozy Pina Colada Grilled Pork Chops

Nothing says "Summer!" like Pina Coladas!  Actually, it really screams "VACATION!" to me, but I'm not getting one of those any time soon.  So this definitely helped me imagine I was in the Dominican Republic or Riviera Maya...

Boozy Pina Colada Grilled Pork Chops
from Bev Cooks

4 tbsp coconut milk
4 tbsp pineapple juice
2 tbsp dark rum
2 1-inch thick pork chops (boneless or bone-in)
salt and pepper to taste

In a medium bowl, whisk together coconut milk, pineapple juice and rum.  Transfer to a small sauce pan and simmer for about 5 minutes.  Season the pork on both sides with salt and pepper.  Preheat grill to high heat.  Place the pork chops on the hottest part of the grill, searing for 2 minutes on each side.  Then move the pork chops to the cooler part of the grill and cook an additional 4 minutes per side, basting when you turn them.  Remove from grill when internal temperature is 145F and let rest a few minutes.
