Did you know that the piña colada was invented in 1954 at a Hilton in Puerto Rico?
Since then it's become one of the most popular cocktails around.
So popular, in fact, that it's got its own national holiday!
And I don't know about you, but I'm pretty glad that it falls in July and not December. Especially because we're in the middle of a record-breaking heatwave.
Like so many drinks, everybody has their own recipe and spin on the sweet libation. Plus, everyone dresses them differently, making them one of the prettiest drinks around.
Because Montrealers know that the way that something looks is just as important as it tastes, it's a great place to celebrate.
So take a look at some of the best piña colada spots in the city and figure out where you're going to celebrate.
