Will Pasternak’s Piña Colada

Will Pasternak, BlackTail | New York

Third place in our recent blind tasting of Piña Coladas went to Will Pasternak from the Cuba-themed bar BlackTail in New York. There, the drink is served directly from a slushy machine, but his scaled-down rendition consists of 1 ¼ ounces Bacardi Havana Club Añejo Blanco, 1 ½ ounces Coco Lopez, 1 ¾ ounces pineapple juice and ¼ ounce lime juice, blended.


Serving: 1

  • 1 1/4 ounce Puerto Rican rum, preferably Bacardi Havana Club Anejo Blanco
  • 1 3/4 ounces pineapple juice
  • 1 1/2 ounces Coco Lopez
  • 1/4 ounce lime juice
  • 1 cup crushed ice

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour into a Hurricane glass and serve with a straw.
