70th Anniversary Piña Colada

Celebrating a Cocktail Revolution

JULY 10 – 14, 2024

Bartender Ramón “Monchito” Marrero made sweet history at Caribe Hilton’s Beachcomber Bar on July 10, 1954 in his effort to create a unique welcome drink for guests of the hotel. To this day, the Piña Colada remains one of the most famous cocktails in the world and is the official drink of Puerto Rico.

In celebration of this historic moment, Caribe Hilton and The Rum Lab are pleased to announce a collaboration to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Piña Colada with unparalleled experiences that will combine fun, education, and a true immersion into the rich history and culture of this iconic drink and rum in Puerto Rico.
