Pina Colada Jam

Our Pina Colada Jam is based on the famous cocktail which contains Fresh Pineapple, Pineapple Juice, Lemon, Coconut Cream, Dark Rum, Coconut Rum and Sugar.

The Pina Colada is a sweet, Rum-based cocktail made with Rum, Cream of Coconut, and Pineapple juice, usually served either blended or shaken with ice. It may be garnished with a pineapple wedge, a maraschino cherry or both. The piña colada has been the official beverage of Puerto Rico since 1978.

The name ‘Piña Colada’ literally means ‘strained pineapple’, a reference to the freshly pressed and strained pineapple juice used in the drink’s preparation. Three Puerto Rican bartenders contest the ownership of their country’s national drink. Ramón ‘Monchito’ Marrero Pérez claims to have first made it at the Caribe Hilton Hotel’s Beachcomber Bar in San Juan on 15th August 1952, using the then newly available Coco López cream of coconut. Ricardo Garcia, who also worked at the Caribe, says that it was he who invented the drink. And Ramón Portas Mingot says he created it in 1963 at the Barrachina Restaurant, 104 Fortaleza Street, Old San Juan – the restaurant stands by his claim to this day.

Truth is rum and pineapple have been mixed together pretty much since rum was first distilled and the first written reference to a Piña Colada was in 1922. However, this recipe did not include coconut and was more a shaken Pineapple Daiquiri made with Bacardi Rum, pineapple juice, lime and sugar – now commonly referred to as a ‘Cuban’ style Piña Colada’ but perhaps more befitting the name ‘strained pineapple’ drink than most people consider a ‘Piña Colada’ today.

So the Puerto Ricans merely added cream of coconut and it is commonly accepted that the modern Piña Colada was adapted from an existing creation at the Caribe Hilton Hotel. Like the Barrachina Restaurant, the hotel has since promoted itself as the home of the Piña Colada and today credits Ramón Marrero Pérez with its invention
