Why You Don't Need A Frozen Mix To Make The Best Pina Colada

If you've ever had a fresh Pina Colada on the rocks, you'll never go frozen again. The official drink of Puerto Rico, it has a rich history that goes back to the 1950s when it was first created by a bartender at the Caribe Hilton's Beachcomber Bar in San Juan. Unlike the hangover inducing milkshakes you get at a chain restaurant, a fresh Pina Colada is sweet and seductive and doesn't fill you up thanks to its fresh ingredients and simple recipe.


  • 2 oz White Rum
  • 3 oz Pineapple Juice
  • 2 oz Coconut Cream
  • 1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
  • Ice cubes

Pina Colada Recipe

  1. Fill a shaker with ice cubes.
  2. Add rum, pineapple juice, coconut cream, and fresh lime juice to the shaker.
  3. Shake vigorously until well-chilled and blended.
  4. Strain the mixture into an old-fashioned glass filled with ice.
  5. Garnish with a pineapple wedge an orange slice.

Pro-Tip To enhance the tropical experience, consider toasting shredded coconut in a dry pan until golden brown. Dip the rim of your glass in agave syrup and then in the toasted coconut before pouring in the cocktail. This adds a delightful aroma and an inviting touch.

Hot Remix Elevate your Pina Colada with fresh, premium ingredients. Use high-quality aged rum, freshly pressed pineapple juice, strained coconut milk, coconut water, and honey or agave syrup. Shake with precision until well-combined and chilled, and strain into a glass with frozen pineapple chunks as ice cubes. Garnish with an edible flower for an extra touch of elegance.
