During the 1940s and ‘50s, largely due to the vibrant performances of Carmen Miranda, American interest in all things Latin was at an all time high. As such, it comes as no surprise that it was at the same time that the most famous of all Latin American beverages, the Piña Colada was invented. Although the exact origin of the Piña Colada is disputed, the exotic drink is generally accepted to have first been mixed in Puerto Rico in the mid 1950’s. The drink is made by blending a light rum with coconut cream and pineapple juice – que rico! On a hot day relaxing poolside, or bellied up to bar in Rio or San Juan, there’s absolutely nothing finer. So, what did Carmen Miranda have to say about them? "I say 20 words in English. I say money, money, money, and I say hot dog! I say yes, no and I say money, money, money and I say turkey sandwich and I say grape juice." Uhm…well, we know what we’d say about this fabulous herb and fruit tea blended in her honor – magnifico! We've blended up dried fruit, herbs and all natural flavoring to create an herbal blend that’ll make you want to get up and dance.
