The History

While there is no doubt about it beginning life in Puerto Rico, there are multiple origin stories which revolve around the Pina Colada. Depending on which narrative is followed, the first cocktail of its kind was either crafted in a bar during the mid-1900s, or its existence began aboard a 19th century pirate ship. 

The latter is, understandably, the most contentious account of the Pina Colada tale. This story claims Roberto Cofresa­, a Puerto Rican pirate, crafted the beverage as a way of boosting the morale of his crew. Instead of the usual grog that had been served up, he purportedly threw together a drink with rum, coconut milk and pineapple juice the key elements of a Pina Colada. Yet legend states the recipe was taken to the grave by Cofresa­, meaning proof for this account of the story is essentially non-existent. In addition, a key ingredient for Pina Colada, Coco Lopez, hadnt been invented at the time, meaning this 19th century version of the drink would have failed to match its modern-day counterpart.

As for the most commonly accepted story about the Pina Coladas creation, this belongs to bartender Ramon Monchito Marrero. Working in 1954 at the Caribe Hilton, one of San Juans most upmarket luxury hotels at the time, Marrero was reportedly asked to invent a signature drink which captured the flavours of Puerto Rico. After apparently spending three months trying to come up with the perfect concoction, Marrero hit the bullseye. His rum, pineapple juice and cream of coconut mix proved to be a hit with hotel management, customers and celebrities alike. 

At least, that is assuming Marrero was the one who actually came up with the recipe. Ricardo Gracia, a Spanish barman who worked alongside Marrero at the Caribe Hilton, claims he devised the Pina Colada. His interpretation states the cocktail was made by accident. During a strike in 1954 which led to a shortage of coconuts, he didnt have his usual drinking container a hollow coconut that held a popular drink which comprised rum, crushed ice and cream of coconut. Needing to improvise, and instead of settling for a regular glass, Gracia hollowed out a pineapple and used that instead. When the addition of pineapple got a positive reaction, he decided to add pineapple juice to the original coconut-based drink, creating the Pina Colada. 

Theres also another hotspot in San Juan which claims to be the birthplace of the Pina Colada. Restaurant Barrachina, which opened its doors in the late 1950s and became renowned for its Spanish cuisine, purports the cocktail was conceived on their premises in 1963. For the non-believers, the restaurant even has a marble plaque beside its entrance detailing the story.  

Regardless of its origins, Puerto Rico declared the Pina Colada as its national drink in 1978.
