Playfully dubbed the, “Green-Yuh Colada,” by the staff at Polite Provisions, the Piña Verde was originally inspired by Erick Castro’s unorthodox addition of Green Chartreuse to his Piña Coladas years ago.
His aim was to create a drink rich with herbaceous flavor. When rum—and then later gin—didn’t cut it, Castro ditched the spirit altogether and upped the liqueur to pick up the slack. The additions of pineapple juice and lime add a fruity kick, while the Piña Colada staple, Coco Lopez, keeps it tethered to the original.
