A Tropical Twist: Crafting the Perfect Piña Colada with Nelson's Roasted Pineapple Rum
Today, we're setting our sights on a cocktail that never goes out of style and is a constant reminder of sunny beaches and tropical vacations - the classic Pina Colada. Synonymous with relaxation and summer fun, the Piña Colada is a mainstay of cocktail menus worldwide, and for a good reason.
Born in Puerto Rico and dating back to the mid-20th century, the Piña Colada has always been about the harmonious blend of rum, coconut, and pineapple. It's a cocktail that embodies the spirit of its birthplace, a sunny and vibrant island known for its lush, tropical landscapes.
At Nelson's, we respect tradition, yet also relish in the joy of innovation. Our take on the Piña Colada, featuring Nelson's Roasted Pineapple Rum, exemplifies this approach. This rendition offers a unique twist on the classic recipe, maintaining the essence of the iconic Piña Colada while adding a touch of Nelson's originality.
