The Piña Colada gets a bad rap among cocktail connoisseurs. For years, this now-classic drink was the poster child of the blender boom, a symbol of poolside bars and booze cruises. But the tropical cocktail—a mix of rum, coconut, pineapple and lime juice—dates back more than a half-century, when the Piña Colada was the drink of the day in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Our recipe silences the blender blades and instead calls for pebble ice and a nice sturdy shake.


  • 60 ml light rum
  • 45 ml cream of coconut
  • 45 ml pineapple juice
  • 15 ml lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • Garnish: pineapple wedge
  • Garnish: pineapple leaf


  1. Add all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake vigorously (20-30 seconds).
  2. Strain into a chilled Hurricane glass over pebble ice.
  3. Garnish with a pineapple wedge and pineapple leaf.
