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!

OVERALL - 4/5 Impressive...most impressive.


  1. One of my fave pinas in Frankfurt! Reliable, always taste great, but totally agree, presentation is lacking. But at Nachtleben, I'm not too bothered, as no drinks look great there ;)

  2. The swimming pool looks great...only because it's bright blue. :)
