The pina colada (“strained pineapple”) cocktail was invented in 1954 in Puerto Rico by Ramón “Monchito” Marrero, a local bartender at a prominent Hilton hotel. It’s a terrific summery drink with an excellent flavor combination of pineapple and coconut, backed by your preferred rum, whether blended or shaken.


  • 2 ounces light rum
  • 1 ounce pineapple juice
  • 1 ounce ​​cream of coconut
  • 1/4 ounce freshly squeezed ​​lime juice
  • 1 1/2 cups ice
  • Pineapple wedge, for garnish
  • Maraschino cherry, for garnish


  • In a blender, combine all of the ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and garnish with a pineapple slice and a cherry.


Very good on a nice hot summer day.
