Bluffing Cocktail #3: Alcohol Free Pina Colada with the good taste of rum.

  • 5cl of Sober-Rum,
  • 5 cl of pineapple juice,
  • 2.5 cl of 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 objective is to create a light creamy foam thanks to the shaking. 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 squeezed lemon wedge.

  • If you don't have a shaker:
Do exactly the same steps as above, directly into the glass. Mix well with a spoon. You can add either crushed ice or ice cubes.



Bartender's secrets

1. No Shaker? Here is an alternative! You can use an empty jam jar or equivalent as a shaker. The shaker allows you to mix evenly and create a symbiosis between all the ingredients. In the Pina Colada, it also allows to create a smooth foam thanks to the oxygenation brought by the Shaking. The shaker also makes it possible to refresh a cocktail very quickly.

2. Squeeze the lemon instead of pounding it?
Squeezing the lemon allows to recover only the good juice of the lemon. Squeezing reveals the bitter lemon peel and the essential oil of the lemon. To balance the flavors it is better to squeeze than to pound.

3. 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 glycemic index (GI) (15 for agave syrup, 54 for honey, 70 for sugar), which helps avoid insulin spikes and therefore avoid storage and weight gain.

History of the Pina Colada

The Pina Colada, a recipe invented in Puerto Rico.

The Pina Colada, or literally "squeezed pineapple", is an exotic sweet dating back to 1954 invented by Ramon Monchito Marrero, bar manager of the Hilton Hotel in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Ramon's mission was to create an emblematic cocktail for the Hilton Hotel that would bring together all the flavors of Puerto Rico. After several months of recipe testing, research and discovery of the culture, on August 15, 1954 he proposed a refreshing, gourmet and smooth cocktail that he named: PinaColada.

The bet was won, customers immediately loved the cocktail including the famous John Wayne. With this success, the Pina Colada became in 1978, the National Cocktail of Puerto Rico.
