A Pina Colada is a pineapple and coconut flavoured cocktail with a base of rum. The name translates literally to “strained pineapple” in reference to the fresh pineapple that is mixed with coconut cream to create the drink. Pina Coladas conjure up images of sunny beaches and summer vibes and are a tried and true summer tradition. It seems to have been invented in 1922, though the creator is unknown. And if you are alcohol-free, do not fret! You too can celebrate the wonder of the Pina Colada with all kinds of flavoured candies or desserts.
