Puerto Rico






Main Dishes



Piña Colada (non-alcoholic) 

One of the quatricentennial houses along Calle Fortaleza, Old San Juan, Puerto Rico's main street, bears a sign that claims that Piña Colada was invented there.

Try it. You'll like it!


  • 6 fluid ounces Pineapple juice (preferably, of course, pineapple chunks from a fresh pineapple)
  • 2 fluid ounces Coconut cream (available canned under several brand names. The best known is Coco Lopez, Real Cream of Coconut.
  • 3 to 4 cups of Ice
  • Cherries
  • Slices of pineapple, orange or lime
  • Paper umbrellas (?)

In a blender, grind ice while gradually adding the pineapple and the coconut cream. Alternatively, use shaved ice. The ice should be thick enough to hold a cherry on top without sinking in. Serve in a tall glass with a straw. Garnish with one cherry and a slice of fruit. Insert a paper umbrella for that additional tropical, exotic touch.


Coquito (non-alcoholic) 

Coquito is a Christmas tradition much like Eggnog in the United States of America and elsewhere. Homemade coquito is served to visitors throughout the extended Christmas holidays celebrated in Puerto Rico and throughout much of the Caribbean.


  • 2 cans of coconut cream
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1/2 quart regular milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoonful of vanilla extract
  • ground cinammon

Blend egg yolks and condensed milk. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Gradually add evaporated and regular milk. Bring to a second boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Add vanilla, stir. Allow to cool.

Serve very cold, preferably without ice in small cups. Sprinkle ground cinammon on top. Sip and enjoy.

A more conservative approach is not to include egg yolks. Try it both ways. They are both a treat to your taste buds!



Parcha con china (non-alcoholic) 



  • Parcha juice
  • Orange juice
  • Lime slice
  • Ground ice
  • sugar or substitute to taste (optional) 

In a tall glass half-full of ground ice, pour equal amounts of parcha and orange juice, . Drop in a slice of lime. Stir and enjoy.
