National Pina Colada Day - July 10

National Pina Colada Day – July 10


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!) Post on social media using #NationalPinaColadaDay to encourage others to join in paying it forward.


We were unable to find the creator and origin of National Pina Colada Day, an “unofficial” national holiday
