A creamy blend of coconut, pineapple and rum. This has to be one of the most popular cocktails worldwide, with a name meaning "strained pineapple". Pina Colada was introduced August 16, 1954 and has been the official beverage of Puerto Rico since 1978. This is my inspiration for making this drink into a dessert using Cream Cheese and Instant Pudding. This will impress your guest at any cocktail party. Enjoy !
