The Original Piña Colada

“My Husband and I had a Piña Colada at the place of its origin in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico - Barrachina Restaurant. This is actually the exact recipe that I got from the restaurant for the original Pina Colada. It is recommended that you use Bacardi rum as it is from Puerto Rico as well (we visited the distilllery that same day). I did not include the freezing time. Enjoy!”
