The Piña Colada is a Puerto Rican rum drink made with pineapple juice (the name means “strained pineapple” in Spanish) and cream of coconut. By most accounts, the modern-day Piña Colada seems to have originated from a 1954 version that bartender named Ramón “Monchito” Marrero Perez shook up at The Caribe Hilton hotel in San Juan, Puerto Rico. While you may not be sipping this icy-cold tiki drink on the beaches of Puerto Rico, it’s sure to get you in a sunny mood no matter the season.
