Piña Coladas are arguably the most popular summer drink. They’re light, refreshing and so delicious! My twist on the traditional Piña Colada gives just a touch more sweetness to bring this cocktail together perfectly.
The earliest known story dates this drink back to the 1950’s, from a man working at a Hilton Hotel in Puerto Rico. He was attempting to create a fruity, summer drink for the hotel patrons and he, in fact, did just that! Since the 50’s, the Piña Colada cocktail has become one of the most well-known cocktails around the world.
While I was never a huge fan of rum, when I tried a Piña Colada for the first time, I loved the frosty texture and freshness of the pineapple and coconut flavor. I eventually began experimenting making some of my own at home, and I noticed that just a small amount of simple syrup really brought all the flavors together!
This recipe is so simple, you will make it a few times and know it forever. It’s perfect for those warm, sunny days when you want a nice, refreshing cocktail to take the edge off! I love pouring pineapple juice in between the blended piña colada because I love what more pineapple juice adds to the drink, but you may pour and serve it however you like!
