Piña Colada


The Piña Colada is a sweet cocktail made with rum, coconut milk, and pineapple juice. The name, which is Spanish, means “strained pineapple.” The earliest known story states that in the 19th century, Puerto Rican pirate Roberto Cofresí, to boost his crew’s morale, gave them a beverage or cocktail that contained coconut, pineapple, and white rum. However, many other claims in the 1950s and ’60s say the drink was originated by various bartenders. One thing that can be agreed upon is its origination in Puerto Rico, which is why in 1978 it became the island’s official drink.
