Pina Colada is the classic blend of rum, cream of coconut, and fresh pineapple juice. Also the national drink of Puerto Rico, Pina Colada is a tropical drink that is gaining popularity across the globe. However, unless you're in Fiji or the Bahamas, it's quite unlikely you'll be served authentic Pina Colada made from cream of coconut and fresh pineapple juice. Most bars and restaurants substitute the key ingredient with dairy cream and artificial coconut rum liqueur. So if you're looking to serve Pina Colada at your beach party, try preparing it at home.
