Pina Colada

Pina Colada cocktail

Type: Cocktail

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?

Tennessee Whiskey is a must in this cocktail and the raspberry Chambord and lemonade compliment it beautifully. The freshly squeezed lime gives the drink its fresh and fruity twist; the combinations are just superb.
