If You Like Pina Coladas... And Bees?!


Here Are Some Piña Colada Facts To Wet Your Appetite

The piña colada has been the official drink of Puerto Rico since 1978.

‘Piña’ is Spanish for pineapple and ‘colada’ stands for strained.

According to popular belief, the first piña colada was created by Ramón “Monchito” Marrero on August 16, 1954, at the Caribe Hilton’s Beachcomber Bar in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

There are many different variations of the piña colada, including the Caribou Lou, iguana colada, King Henry, lava flow, piñita colada, and much more.
