Pina Colada THURSDAY @ the MSC

Good Morning Friends!

Today is National Pina Colada Day......(I'm not a huge coconut fan but will have one of these every so often).....how about you?


July 10th recognizes a sweet, rum-based cocktail on National Pina Colada Day. Along with rum, a Pina Colada includes cream of coconut and pineapple juice and is usually served blended or shaken with ice.
Pina Colada means ‘strained pineapple,’ a reference to the freshly pressed and strained pineapple juice used in the drink.
While pineapple has been a part of the distillation history of rum, coconut didn’t show up until later. The first written reference to a pina colada was in 1922. However, two different claims to the invention of the pina colada in 1952 come from San Juan. Neither wavers from their story.
No matter who created the first creamy, sweet rum drink, it is forever infused with the ocean and beaches. The cocktail’s bright flavor suggests sunshine and vacation. Coconut alone makes us think of suntans while the pineapple’s freshness delivers a sparkling note of summer breezes.
The beverage isn’t the only way to celebrate either. The day is dedicated to all things pina colada. Whether we make a dessert or snack on pina colada jelly beans, everyone can join in the day.
Put on your sunglasses, kick back, and enjoy a sip or a taste. It’s the best way to celebrate.

Good morning boys and girls. :)

Nothing coconut for me. Can't stand the taste AND smell.

Got another hair cut yesterday, and that made me happy. :)

Off to the work place. Have a good Thursday!

(And if you read back, thanks George!)

Good morning. I'm sure at some time in my life I've had a pina colada but I don't remember when I did. I'm not much of a coconut fan

I think after my 2:00 meeting, I might just chill for the rest of the afternoon.

Afternoon BNers

Mmmmm. Pina coladas. Not a fan of eating coconut but I will drink it. 🤩

I have a package ordered. Got more than one notice saying it was to be delivered yesterday.
Nope.
Today, I got a message saying it just left IL. Thinking it will take a few more days.

I am astonished.

How do you guys survive a tropical sojourn without coconut?

It is the tree of life!

I did a coconut bra once. I'd rather do other stuff.
