National Pina Colada Day

Zeb the Duck here with some important news for humans.  Today, July 10 is Pina Colada Day.  You don’t need to be on a beach to enjoy this refreshing tropical cocktail.  No matter where you are in the world, a pina colada is a great way to sit back, relax and enjoy a little taste of summer.

Did you know that pina coladas originated in San Juan, Puerto Rico?  The term, “pina colada” means “strained pineapple” in Spanish, which makes perfect sense.  A traditional recipe calls for pineapple juice, light rum, and coconut cream poured over crushed ice.  Yes, these are good even without the rum, so humans of all ages can enjoy this beverage.

If you like pina coladas, fix yourself an ice cold drink, top it with a mini umbrella, and celebrate National Pina Colada Day!
