National PiÃ±a Colada Day
Itâs PiÃ±a Colada Day! You donât need to be on a beach to enjoy this refreshing tropical cocktail. No matter where you are in the world, a piÃ±a colada is a great way to sit back, relax, and enjoy a little taste of the summer.
Did you know that piÃ±a coladas originated in San Juan, Puerto Rico? The term, "piÃ±a colada" means "strained pineapple" in Spanish, which makes perfect sense. A traditional recipe calls for pineapple juice, light rum, and coconut cream poured over crushed ice.
If you like piÃ±a coladas (âand getting caught in the rain!â) fix yourself an ice cold drink, top it with a mini umbrella, and celebrate National PiÃ±a Colada Day!
