History of the Pina Colada
Stunning Cocktail #3: Alcohol-Free Pina Colada with the great taste of rum.
5cl of Sober-Rum,
5 cl of pineapple juice,
2.5 cl coconut cream
Preferably in a shaker with ice
Option: for more tangy freshness, squeeze a lime wedge.
Take a balloon glass (stemmed) or Tumbler (Mojito glass).
If you have a shaker :
Pour 5 cl of Sober-Rum 0.0%, 5 cl of pineapple juice and 2.5 cl of coconut cream directly into the shaker. Add ice cubes and shake vigorously for at least 10 seconds. The aim is to create a light, creamy froth with the shaker. Pour directly into the glass. Decorate with a slice of pineapple and its leaf, and it's ready to enjoy!
Option: if you prefer a touch of tart freshness, add a wedge of squeezed lemon.
If you don't have a shaker:
Carry out exactly the same steps as above, directly into the glass. Mix well with a spoon. You can add either crushed ice or ice cubes.
No Shaker? Here is an alternative!
You can use an empty jam jar or similar as a shaker. The shaker allows you to mix all the ingredients in a homogeneous way and create a symbiosis between them. In the Pina Colada, it also allows you to create a creamy foam thanks to the oxygenation provided by the shaking. The shaker can also be used to refresh a cocktail very quickly.
Squeezing the lemon rather than pounding?
Squeezing the lemon allows only the good juice of the lemon to be recovered. Squeezing reveals the bitter lemon peel and the essential oil of the lemon. To balance the flavours it is better to squeeze than to squeeze.
Why use agave syrup?
Simply from a healthy point of view! Agave syrup is a natural sweetening agent produced from Agave with the great advantage of having a low glycaemic index (GI) (15 for agave syrup, 54 for honey, 70 for sugar), which prevents insulin peaks and therefore storage/bloating.
History of the Pina Colada
Pina Colada, a recipe invented in Puerto Rico.
The Pina Colada, or literally "squeezed pineapple", is an exotic sweet that dates back to 1954 and was invented by Ramon Monchito Marrero, bar manager of the Hilton Hotel in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Ramon's mission was to create an iconic cocktail for the Hilton Hotel that would bring together all the flavors of Puerto Rico. After several months of recipe testing, research and cultural discovery, on August 15, 1954, he proposed a refreshing, gourmet and smooth cocktail that he named Pina Colada.
The bet was won, the customers immediately loved the cocktail including the famous John Wayne. With this success, the Pina Colada became the National Cocktail of Puerto Rico in 1978.
