    Pina Colada Cocktail

    Bring a touch of summer to autumn.

    • 1 1/2 ounces coconut rum
    • 2 ounces fresh coconut water
    • 1/2 ounce fresh pineapple juice
    • Juice of 1/2 a pressed lime
    • Pineapple leaf (for garnish)

    RIM INGREDIENTS

    • 2 bar spoons honey
    • 4 bar spoons coconut flakes

    To mixing glass, add coconut rum, coconut water, pineapple juice, and lime juice. Add ice to tin. Shake well. Strain into coconut-rimmed cocktail glass. Garnish with a pineapple leaf.

    RIM INGREDIENTS

    to rim the glass: Measure honey onto a small plate. Measure coconut flakes onto a different small plate. First, rotate the rim of the glass in the honey, coating the top outer lip. Next, roll the honey rim in the coconut until it is evenly coated. Set aside.

    The Piña Colada was first introduced in 1954 by bartender Ramon “Monchito” Marrero at the Caribe Hilton Hotel in Puerto Rico. It is the official beverage of the hotel. There is also a bar in old San Juan that makes a similar claim.
