Piña Colada (Rum, Pineapple and Coconut Cocktail): A drink that suggests tropics, beach, and sunny days under palm trees.
It was the end of the 70s and Rupert Holmes unleashed upon the world his magnum opus about unexciting marriages and adulterous spouses in the age before internet dating. ‘If you like Piña Coladas, getting caught in the rain” opens the second verse.
“If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rainRupert Holmes
If you’re not into yoga, if you have half a brain
If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape
I’m the love that you’ve looked for, come with me, and escape”
Piña Colada is a drink that suggests tropics, beach, and sunny days under palm trees (and, apparently, adultery).
The popular drink has its origins in the neighboring island of Puerto Rico, possibly its most famous export. The mixture of pineapple, coconut, and rum is, as a matter of fact, Puerto Rico’s official beverage.
The good news is that it is very easy to make. And once you do it, you’ll be the most popular person amongst your friends.
