“Piña coladas were created in Puerto Rico in the 1950s and the name 'piña colada' is Spanish in origin, meaning 'strained pineapple.'" says Danielle Yoon, Owner, Drinksmith.

“The original cocktail called for heavy coconut cream – but nowadays a lighter version of the drink, using canned coconut milk, seems to have greater appeal.”
