Alright here’s a challenge: Find me even a single person that doesn’t at least secretly kind of enjoy “Escape (the Piña Colada Song)” by Rupert Holmes (even though like at least 80% of people think it’s by Jimmy Buffett)?
I mean, what’s not to like? It’s groovy, it’s funky, it’s got memorable lyrics, it’s easy to sing along with at a karaoke bar when you’ve got just enough booze flowing to make everything warm and fuzzy. Oh, and it’s about enjoying Piña Coladas! Seriously, this should be our national anthem. Or at the very least, it should be the official song of July 10th. Why? Because today is Piña Colada Day!
That’s right. A whole day devoted to the tropical, creamy delights of a potent Piña (the official drink of Puerto Rico since 1978). Rum, cream of coconut, pineapple juice, and a maraschino cherry on top. Simple tropical perfection. Just one sip and you’ll feel like you’re making love at midnight on the dunes of the cape.
To help you celebrate this day in style, here are a few items from KegWorks that will help you whip up an unrivaled batch of paradise in a glass. Bottoms up!
