The mei’a colada
The Pina Colada is a famous tropical cocktail from Puerto Rico, created in the early 1950s by Ramón Marrero, a bartender at the Caribe Hilton hotel in San Juan. He spent months experimenting with different combinations of ingredients to create a new cocktail that would represent the island. Pina Colada quickly became popular with tourists and locals alike, and in 1978 was declared Puerto Rico’s official cocktail. Since then, it has become a worldwide favorite, associated with tropical vacations and relaxation.
In this version, we’ve replaced the pineapple with mashed banana and lemon juice. Mmmmm !
