Best Ever Pina Colada Recipe.

Best Ever Pina Colada Recipe.


This famous tropical drink was invented in Puerto Rico - a sweet mix of coconut cream, pineapple juice, white rum and ice, it was born in San Juan, but the identity of its creator is still an unresolved controversy on the island.


The traditional blended Piña Colada doesn't use frozen pineapple, but we find it adds a bit more flavour and reduces the amount of ice needed. As with most tiki-style drinks, this one uses multiple styles of rum to achieve balance and flavour.

120mL pineapple juice
60mL white rum
60mL coconut cream
Wedge of pineapple to garnish
Splash of golden or anejo rum


Place white rum, coconut cream, pineapple juice and chunks and ice in a blender. Process until totally blended.

Pour into glasses and top with the golden rum, it should float on the top.

Serves with pineapple leaves, or slices as garnish if desired.
