History

The very famous Pina Colada cocktail was born in Cuba, it was originally a non-alcoholic cocktail. The recipe has totally evolved over time, rum appeared in recipes in the early 1920s. Coconut began to be integrated in the mid-1930s, but it was not until the 1950s that the recipe was we know it, that is to say with rum, coconut cream and pineapple juice combined.

It should be noted that pinas coladas can also be made in a shaker, and that the coconut cream can be replaced by coconut milk.

The real origin of the Pina Colada is not exactly known, several theories exist but the most credible is the following. The Pina Colada would have been invented by Don Ramon Marrero known as "Monchito" on August 15, 1954 at the Beachcomber bar of the Caribe Hilton hotel in San Juan (Puerto Rico). It is said that Monchito would have spent more than 3 months to develop his pina colada, long months during which he would have experimented with all kinds of ingredients with different dosages.
