Piña Colada, the national drink of Puerto Rico since 1978 and enjoyed on beaches and sunbeds around the world. A complimentary blend of rum, coconut and pineapple combine beautifully. Served in a Poco Grande glass (also known as a hurricane glass) and garnished with fresh pineapple and a cocktail cherry, this drink really is a summer classic.
