A brief history of the Pina Colada Cocktail...
As the official drink of Puerto Rico, the infamous Pina Colada may conjure images of white sand and beach bars, but this popular drink is seeped in history and has many tales to tell.
Often called the 'Pirate cocktail', the Pina Colada dates as far back as 1825, when the Peurto Rican pirate Roberto Cofresi boosted the morale of his crew by plying them with a mixture of rum, pineapple and coconut...giving birth to the first version of the Pina Colada.
However, it wasn't until much later in time that this tropical cocktail was introduced to mainstream society - this was when in the 1950's a bartender at the Caribe Hilton Hotel in Peurto Rico created the modern Pina Colada, comprised of white run, pineapple juice, lime and coconut cream. The unique creamy Pina Colada soon gained popularity, catching the eye of bars along the East Coast of America, before quickly spreading across the entire world.
Traditionally the Pina Colada is shaken over ice until the ingredients are smashed together into a think creamy cocktail, however modern trends favour the blended version which creates an even smoother frozen Pina Colada that is perfect for those sunny days on the beach.
With such simple ingredients, this is the perfect cocktail to switch up the taste! Try switching out pineapple for strawberry with the Strawberry Pina Colada, or add passion fruit for a Passionfruit Pina Colada, or even add in some melon liquor for a Midori Pina Colada.
Whatever your preferred technique of creating the Pina Colada, what is guaranteed is a perfectly balanced sweet and sour cocktail that hits the mark on every occasion.
What ingredients are used in the Pina Colada Cocktail?
The Pina Colada cocktail is a delicious blend of premium ingredients that combine to create a tropical and indulgent flavour profile that is perfect for sipping on a hot summer day or enjoying as a dessert cocktail. The main ingredient are highlighted below:
- White Rum - provides a subtle kick of alcohol that enhances the overall flavour of the cocktail.
- Spiced Rum - the addition of a second blend of Spiced Rum adds a warm and spicy note to the cocktail, which complements the sweetness of the other ingredients.
- Premium Pineapple juice - this is the star of the show, providing a tangy and fruity flavour that is both refreshing and indulgent. The juice is made from high-quality pineapples, and are perfectly balanced to create the perfect tropical flavour.
- Coconut cream - another key ingredient which provides a creamy and indulgent texture to the cocktail, adding a smooth and satisfying feel to the drink.
- Lime juice - provides a tangy and zesty flavour that balances out the sweetness of the other ingredients, adding a refreshing and citrusy note to the cocktail.
