About National Pina Colada Day
Piña colada means 'strained pineapple'. This popular cocktail made with rum, cream of coconut or coconut milk, and pineapple juice, usually served either blended or shaken with ice. It may be garnished with either a pineapple wedge, maraschino cherry, or both.
There are two versions of the drink, both originating in Puerto Rico, though the exact history is disputed ranging from a 19th-century pirate to a bartender in the 1960s.
