Pina Colada

The Pina Colada is a creamy sweet rum cocktail, the coconut milk and ice cubes blend together to give it a consistency like fresh ice cream or gelato. The Pina Colada has been the official beverage of Puerto Rico since 1978.

If you don't have a blender, you can use crushed ice with a cocktail shaker – it won't be quite as smooth but it will still taste great.


  1. Pour the ice into a blender.
  2. The pour the rum, pineapple juice and coconut milk into the blender.
  3. Pop the lid onto the blender and blend the mixture until smooth.
  4. Pour into a chilled glass.
  5. To finish garnish with a pineapple wedge and the maraschino cherry.
July 10th is National Pina Colada day.
