Cocktails for Summer: The Piña Colada

Created in San Juan, Puerto Rico by bartender Ramón “Monchito” Marrero in 1954 and immortalized by singer Rupert Holmes in his 1979 #1 hit “Escape (The Piña Colada Song),” the piña colada is a sweet, rum-based cocktail, its name literally meaning “strained pineapple” in Spanish.

Here are the ingredients

3 oz (3 parts) Pineapple juice
1 oz (one part) White rum
1 oz (one part) Coconut cream

As fancy and exotic as it sounds, the piña colada is remarkably easy to make. Simply mix one part white rum, one part cream of coconut and three parts pineapple juice with ice in a blender and mix until smooth. You could even add one part Malibu for extra kick and flavor. Once the ingredients are blended pour into a glass, garnish with a pineapple slice and an optional maraschino cherry and serve.
