SKINNY HEATHEN! 21 Jun 2013
Lets celebrate the first day of the summer with the quintessential laid-back summertime cocktail, the Piña Colada. Here's a lighter recipe with no need for Coconut Cream! If you like Piña Coladas... here's a little history: Mr. Ramon Manchito Marrero Pérez was tending bar at the Caribe Hilton when he was introduced to the product Coco Lopez, and the Piña Colada, translated as “squeezed pineapple,” was born. A sign at La Barra in San Juan’s Old City has a different claim: In 1963, the Piña Colada was created there by Mr. Don Ramón Portas Migot. That both claimants have four names might indicate a tie, but most authorities credit Pérez.
