Yesterday and today the weather was like it may be every day, 24 to 25 degrees celcius. You don’t need a jacket to walk outside and the sun is so nice and warm. It gave me the memories of my first holiday to Tenerife. During this holiday we saw a nice bar near a beach. The menu was full of the most beautiful cocktails. Often it means too good to be true, but the cocktails were really so good! We decided to try every cocktail on the menu during the days we were there. One of these drinks was the Pina Colada. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at how to make Pina Colada.

What is the definition of Pina Colada

The meaning of Pina Colada is:

”The name of the cocktail is Spanish for Pineapple Strained. The cocktail is made with rum, coconut cream, coconut milk and pineapple use. It is made by shaken with ice cubes or blended”.

Piña Colada

When I think about cocktails, I think about good weather. Actually, I immediately think of a vacation, since I never actually drink cocktails when I’m at home. Of course for making these recipes, but that’s not weekly! One of my favorite cocktails is the Piña Colada.

The history of the Piña Colada has several stories. For example, a story goes that the cocktail was invented by a Pirate from Puerto Rico. This pirate wanted to ensure that his crew gained a lot of self-confidence and therefore made a cocktail. This cocktail contains white rum, coconut and pineapple. This story has its origins in 1825, but the credibility of this story is strongly doubted. I cannot deny that it’s an amazing story. Many years later in 1950 the New York Times published an article that described a cocktail as we now know it as the Piña Colada.

Still, two companies claim they were the first to make the drink. These include the Caribe Hilton Hotel and the Barrachina restaurant. The hotel indicates that a bartender made the drink in 1954. According to the bartender, this drink was everything Puerto Rico stands for. The restaurant actually claims the same. I don’t know exactly who the real inventor is. What I do know is that it has been proclaimed the cocktail as official drink in Puerto Rico since 1978.

Pina Colada Recipe

This cocktail recipe is so easy. You need the follow ingredients: white rum, coconut milk and Pineapple juice.

For this cocktail you have two options. You can use a shaker or blender. There is no good or wrong if you make this choice, the texture only can be different. I used a shaker! The first thing you want to do is grab your shaker and add 1/3 of ice cubes. After adding the ice cubes you need to measure the different ingredients. This ingredients are 45 ml of white rum, 30 ml of coconut milk and 90 ml of pineapple juice.

When everything is measured you can add them in your shaker or blender. Start shaking for a couple of seconds! When you are done shaking you pour the mixture in your glass. You can choose to add the ice or without the ice. Just what you like the most!

To give the cocktail an amazing look you need to add a pineapple chunk on the side of the glass. The last thing you need to do before drinking is to add the cocktail cherry in the glass! Enjoy this amazing drink!
