The Pina Colada has been the national drink of Puerto Rico since 1978 and was first introduced in 1954 to customers in San Juan, Puerto Rico by Ramon Perez. The Pina Colada even featured in a hit song by Rupert Homes in 1979.
It’s a sweet cocktail that is made with rum, coconut cream or coconut milk, and pineapple juice and is served either blended or shaken with ice. A tropical cocktail that is a guilty secret pleasure maybe?View recipe
