Piña colada

A piña colada is a special kind of mixed cocktail. It is usually made of rum, coconut cream, and pineapple juice.[1] It is usually served either blended or shaken with ice. It may be garnished with either a pineapple wedge, a maraschino cherry, or both. The piña colada is the national drink of Puerto Rico.[2] Several claim to be the first to invent the piña colada. Bartender Ramon “Monchito” Marrero is claimed to be the inventor over fifty years ago by the Puerto Rican government.[2] But there are three places in Puerto Rico that claim to be the home of the Piña Colada.[3] There was also a version made in Cuba as early as 1922.[2]
