PiΓ±a Colada

The PiΓ±a Colada is a sweet, tropical cocktail made with rum, coconut cream or coconut milk, and pineapple juice. It’s often served either blended or shaken with ice and is famous for its rich, creamy texture and refreshing taste. Here’s a classic recipe to make a PiΓ±a Colada:


  • 2 ounces (60 ml) white rum
  • 1 ounce (30 ml) coconut cream
  • 3 ounces (90 ml) pineapple juice
  • Ice cubes
  • Pineapple slice and maraschino cherry, for garnish


  1. Blend or Shake:
    • For a creamy and smooth drink, blend the rum, coconut cream, and pineapple juice with a cup of ice until smooth. For a more traditional, on-the-rocks version, shake the ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Serve:
    • Pour the mixture into a chilled glass. If you blended it, make sure the glass can handle the volume and thickness of the drink. For the shaken version, strain it into a glass filled with fresh ice.
  3. Garnish:
    • Garnish with a slice of pineapple and a maraschino cherry.
  4. Enjoy:
    • Serve with a straw and enjoy immediately.

The PiΓ±a Colada originated from Puerto Rico and is celebrated for its ability to transport one’s taste buds to a tropical paradise. It’s perfect for summer parties, poolside relaxing, or whenever you’re in the mood for something sweet and tropical.
