A Piña Colada (literally "strained pineapple", in Spanish) is a popular cocktail comprising rum, pineapple juice and coconut extract of some sort. It is blended with or shaken with ice and served in a tall glass or goblet with a garnish, usually a cherry.

References to the pina colada date back to the 1920s, but today's incarnation with the addition of coconut cream dates from the 1950s.

It is one of the International Bartending Association's classic drinks and is one of the cocktails that must be made for competitions.
