Stories say the first official Piña Colada was created in the 1800’s by a Puerto Rican pirate to give to his crew. When he passed away, he took the recipe with him. Finally, in 1954, the official Piña Colada recipe was reborn in Puerto Rico after months of experimenting to find the perfect blend of pineapple, coconut and rum. It has been the official drink of Puerto Rico for decades.
