The ultimate tropical drink, the piña colada was invented by Ramón Marrero, bartender at the Caribe Hilton San Juan in the 1950s. In a fit of inspiration, Marrero mixed rum, coconut cream and pineapple juice to create the cocktail that has come to symbolise the beachside vacation. Marrero continued to personally mix the drink for hotel guests for 35 years.
