Classic, Virgin, And Delicious Pina Colada Recipes

Do you like Pina Coladas? Or getting caught in the rain? Well, for anyone who lives in the UK, getting caught in the rain is inevitable, given our typical summers! But as for the Pina Coladas, we have a look at the classic rum, coconut, and pineapple drink.

Without a doubt, the pandemic has revived the grand old cocktail happy hour, as more and more of us are indulging in Zoom drinks with friends, and getting creative with our lockdown cocktails. The nation’s pubs and bars might be reopening, but that’s doesn’t mean we can’t make and enjoy drinks at home.

It was first made in 1954 by Ramon “Monchito” Marrero, barman at the Caribe Hilton in a San Juan, Puerto Rico. He wanted to tap into the tropical essence of the glorious Caribbean island when he mixed rum, coconut cream, and pineapple juice.

There are plenty of ways to make this delicious cocktail at home, and we have a few recipes for you here.


Bacardi Pina Colada



50 ml Bacardi Carta Blanca rum

35 ml fresh coconut water

25 ml fresh pineapple juice

3-4 chunks fresh pineapple

2 tsp caster sugar


Place the pineapple chunks into a cocktail shaker and crush them lightly (using a muddler or bar spoon). Then pour in the pineapple juice and coconut water and stir it all up to dissolve the sugar before pouring in the rum. Fill the shaker with ice cubes and shake vigorously.

Next pour the mix into a tall glass over crushed ice, and garnish with a pineapple slice and leaf.


Spiced Pina Colada



50ml The Duppy Share Spiced

50ml coconut milk
