Cancer: Piña Colada

There's nothing Cancers love more than comfort, and what's more reassuring than what's basically an adult milkshake? Order a piña colada for your Cancer friends. Since "water signs are very sensitive to substances of all kinds.

The Piña Colada has a bit of a bad rap among cocktail connoisseurs. For years, this is now-classic drink was the poster child of the blender boom, a symbol of poolside bars and booze cruises. The tropical cocktail—a mix of rum, coconut, pineapple and lime juices

As the story goes, the Piña Colada debuted in 1952, when it was first mixed by Ramon Marrero Perez, the head barman at the Caribe Hilton in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Perez had blended up a winner, and the tropical drink enjoyed its place in the sun for decades, finding its way to American shores and faraway isles. However, the quality took a nose dive around the 1970s when barkeeps began making Piña Coladas with cheap, bottled mixers and serving them in comically large glasses.

Fortunately, the drink has enjoyed a renaissance in recent years, as craft-focused bartenders reclaimed the original recipe, once again focusing on solid ingredients and proper proportions. Some also opted to sub shaker tins for the traditional blender, creating a lighter, less-icy cocktail.

Colada is sweet, but balanced, with crisp rum and tart fruit complementing the rich coconut. Whether you’re on vacation or just making drinks at home, don’t neglect the Piña Colada. Put one of these in everyone’s hand, and good times are imminent. Cancerians make your drink and enjoy your birth month..
