National Pina Colada Day - July 10

National Pina Colada Day – July 10

NATIONAL PINA COLADA DAY

National Pina Colada Day is celebrated annually on July 10th.  The Pina Colada is a sweet, rum-based cocktail.  Along with rum, a Pina Colada includes cream of coconut and pineapple juice and is usually served blended or shaken with ice.

Pina Colada literally means ‘strained pineapple’, a reference to the freshly pressed and strained pineapple juice used in the drink.

There are different claims to the invention of the Pina Colada beginning in 1952 in San Juan, each standing to their story.  The truth is that pineapple and rum have been together from the beginning of the distillation of rum.  The first written reference to a Pina Colada was in 1922.  This recipe, however, did not include coconut.

On National Pina Colada Day, you do not have to be sitting on a beach or the deck of a cruise ship.  You can enjoy a nice tall, cool Pina Colada where ever you are!

(Remember to drink responsibly and never drink and drive!)

NATIONAL CLERIHEW DAY

On July 10th, National Clerihew Day is observed in the United States.  Invented by Edmund Clerihew Bently, a clerihew is a whimsical, four-line biographical poem.

In the year 1905, Bently wrote one of his best known which is:

Sir Christopher Wren
Said, “I am going to dine with some men
If anyone calls
Say I am designing St. Paul’s.


“A clerihew has the following properties:

  • It is biographical and usually whimsical, showing the subject from an unusual point of view; it pokes fun at mostly famous people
  • It has four lines of irregular length and metre (for comic effect)
  • The rhyme structure is AABB; the subject matter and wording are often humorously contrived in order to achieve a rhyme, including the use of phrases in Latin, French and other non-English languages
  • The first line contains, and may consist solely of, the subject’s name.”
     (Wikipedia)

English novelist and humorist, Edmund Clerihew Bently (July 10, 1875 – March 30, 1956), was a 16-year-old student when he thought up the lines for his first ever clerihew.

Sir Humphry Davy
Abominated gravy.
He lived in the odium
Of having discovered sodium.

On National Clerihew Day, try writing a clerihew or two of your own!
