National Pina Colada Day: Cheers!

How does a refreshing, ice cold drink sound right about now? If you need a break from the sweltering summer heat, you’re in luck! Get ready to grab your nearest glass - July 10 is National Pina Colada Day!

Perfect for pool parties, a girl's night out on the town or a relaxing day at the beach, this tropical coconut concoction is sure to whet your whistle. What could be better on a scorching summer day than sipping on a refreshing Pina Colada with a few of your favorite gal pals or beloved family members?

While there is some debate who actually “invented” the drink, bartender Ramon “Monchito” Marrero is often credited as coming up with the creamy concoction back in 1954. Made with coconut cream, pineapple and rum, Pina Coladas are the perfect summertime cocktail.

Whether you prefer to sip yours from a straw or eat it with a spoon, why not whip up one or two Pina Colada-inspired recipes in honor of the annual holiday? Cheers!
