Chili Pineapple Margarita – is a Drink Chef signature cocktail. It’s a little sweet, a little spicy and quite delicious! Put it on your menu and watch it grow… A huge house favorite! Savory, sweet AND spicy! Not for everyone, this is quite unique and enticing to many, many of my guests. Give it a try this weekend! The cilantro kosher salt is also a great addition. Just put kosher salt in a food processor an a small bunch of cilantro leaves, blend them up and rim your glass! Cheers!
The piña colada is a sweet, rum-based cocktail made with rum, cream of coconut, and pineapple juice, usually served either blended or shaken with ice. It may be garnished with a pineapple wedge, a maraschino cherry or both. The piña colada has been the official beverage of Puerto Rico since 1978. (Spanish: piña, pineapple + colada, strained)
The piña colada was created on August 16, 1954 at the Caribe Hilton’s Beachcomber Bar in San Juan, Puerto Rico by its alleged creator, Ramón “Monchito” Marrero. Apparently, the hotel management had expressly requested Monchito to mix a new signature drink that would delight the demanding palates of its star-studded clientele. Monchito accepted the challenge, and after three intense months of blending, shaking and experimenting, the first piña colada was born.
Orange Juice Variation Recipe
The origins of the ‘original’ Pina Colada are as varied as it’s recipes. Depending on where you are and who the bartender is… you will get many, many different versions of this delicious drink. Puerto Rico is probably the place of origin… but when? It seems the recipe for the original recipe did NOT contain orange juice. That was my idea…. This recipe is a good usable version that has an inviting color and flavor because of the OJ. Cheers!
