Pinacolada, a charming and different flavor beverage, is a blend of pineapple juice and coconut juice. It’s not bad to know that pineapple is tropical and native to South America. The juicy and delicious fruit was first discovered in southern Brazil and Paraguay, and its European discoverers introduced pineapple to Asia and Europe. The introduction of new fruits in European culture was so important that there is now a well-known painting of the introduction of pineapple cultivated in England to Charles II. Currently, countries of Costa Rica, the Philippines, Brazil, Thailand and India are among the largest producers and exporters of pineapple in the world. Coconut is also a tropical fruit, with little consensus on it’s origin. Some people consider South America and others consider Malaysia and the countries on the Indian Ocean boundary as the birthplace of coconut. However today, Indonesia, the Philippines, India, Brazil, and Sri Lanka are among the largest producers and exporters of coconut in the world.
