Long have I admired the beauty and taste of a good pina colada, and through my adventures I have discovered both wonderous, and also disastrous pinas. To help other pinas admirers, I have created this handy blog, giving my very own rating of pina coladas in various locations. The journey begins in Frankfurt...

Pinas Number 1
Oh my, the very first pinas entry...! And so it begins in Frankfurt, where my Pina Colada obssession grew to fruition. I sampled them all across the city, often saying how I was going to form a blog and rate them...that was nearly 4 years ago, oops! Well, better late than never, eh? So, here we are - onwards!
Nacht Leben - 7 euros, 5 in happy hour, and 4 on a Sunday (excellent!)
My local! Often frequented as it's literally across the street from me, sometimes hosts great bands...and does a mean Pina Colada! Let's get down to rating this pinas.
APPEARANCE - 2/5 - Despite being so wonderful, it's totally letdown on it's appearance...very plain. However, it's in a large glass - misleading! It's filled with a high percentage of ice..too much. One small lonely piece of fruit bobs on the surface.
TASTE - 4/5 - Fantastic taste! Not so pineappley, and I couldn't really taste the alcohol (a good thing, in my opinion) Creamy, but not in a sickening way.
TEXTURE - 4/5 - Nice and thick! Not too thick as to be difficult to drink though, even with all that ice.
FINISH - 3.5/5 As mentioned, thick, but does eventually water down due to the ice if you don't drink it fast enough - no time for savouring! Is this acceptable? I would say no..but then again, with such a great taste you'll be wanting more!
