Where did the Pina Colada originate?

Piña Colada originates from Puerto Rico! Back in 1978, this pineapple coconut drink was named Puerto Rico’s national cocktail. In Spanish, its name means “strained pineapple,” referring to the freshly pressed and strained pineapple used in preparing the drink! It’s made with 4 simple ingredients — frozen watermelon, pineapple, rum, and coconut milk.  It only takes a couple of minutes to blend up, and it is guaranteed to give you those delicious, beachy, sunny vacation vibes wherever you are!

Today we’re using their Pineapple rum to make this delicious Watermelon Piña Colada!

How do you make a Watermelon Pina Colada?

This summer cocktail starts with freezing some watermelon! Freezing the watermelon creates the frosty beverage without watering it down with ice cubes! I’m also freezing the watermelon rinds for a fun way to drink the Watermelon Piña Colada when they’re blended! We’re also using fresh pineapple so you know it’s going to be packed with all those yummy tropical flavors! If you don’t have fresh pineapple, frozen will work but if you’re using canned, the flavors won’t be quite the same. To see how easy it is, check out my step by step process below!
