Variations of Pina Colada

You can experiment with the room at any time. For example, try a golden, light, spiced, or dark variant, where everyone gives the cocktail an utterly different taste expression. You can also easily adjust the coconut taste with either syrup, cream, or Malibu.

Pina Colada origin
As with so many other famous and classic cocktails, there is a rift about its origins.
Some claim that Pina Colada has its origins in the hotel The Hilton Caribe in 1954, where employee Ramon Marrero mixed the full-bodied flavor combination. Others believe the cocktail originated at bars in either Puerto Rico, Curacao, or Old San Juan.
Wherever this mouth-watering cocktail has its origins, today it is enjoyed all over the world. You will rarely experience a cocktail bar that does not have Pina Colada on the menu.
Non-alcoholic Pina Colada
Do you want to enjoy a non-alcoholic drink at home, or should guests have the opportunity for your upcoming party? A non-alcoholic Pina Colada is an excellent choice as the taste remains delicious. However, it certainly does not get too sweet without alcohol, as the juice from the glue adds a touch of acidity.
