I like to share creative ideas for moms, DIY, family fun, crafts, travel, recipes, party planning, shopping, discounts, gifts, and more.

What is a Pina Colada?

The Pina Colada is the official drink of Puerto Rico. This tropical delight is a blend of pineapple juice, coconut cream and rum. Let's get out the blender and mix up a batch. You don't need to travel to the islands to enjoy a Pina Colada, you can make this refreshing drink right at home.

History

The Pina Colada is said to have been created in 1954 by Ramon “Monchito” Marrero Perez at the Caribe Hilton in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He intended to capture the tropics in a glass and he sure did a great job.

The Caribe Hilton possesses two proclamations which state the hotel is the "Birthplace of the Pina Colada". One proclamation was given by Puerto Rico Governor Sila M. Calderon in 2000, and the other in 2014 by Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla as part of the Pina Colada 60th Anniversary celebrations. The Caribe Hilton is located in San Juan, Puerto Rico. It's the first hotel that Hilton Hotels operated outside of the continental United States.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Coconut Rum, Malibu Rum
  • 1 cup Pineapple Juice
  • 1 cup Cream of Coconut, Coco Lopez
  • 5 cups Ice

  • Pineapple slice for garnish

Instructions

A tropical drink just isn't complete without a colorful cocktail umbrella to top it off. This cute little drink accessory has been around for quite a while. Polynesian tiki-themed restaurants called Don the Beachcomber and Trader Vics started serving paper umbrella's in their cocktails in the 1930's.

      Awesome! When I read Island Bite's thread, I was thinking of finding a recipe online for when I want to have some. Now I don't have to look! Brilliant hub. I enjoy the music, the photos, and the recipe.

      I have a mini blender set similar to the bullet, and I love it! I have full-size blenders and food processors, as well, but using the mini one is much more convenient for some of the smaller things I use it for, and quicker to clean.

      Thanks for sharing this with us, and have a wonderful day.
