What is the name of your cocktail?
Cover Band Baby

What inspired this garnish?
Hanging out before shift, we take turns playing the music. The mood is always changing, but “Escape (The Piña Colada Song)” by Rupert Holmes is a staple on many a playlist. For this competition, we have reimagined the Piña Colada as a cocktail the same way a cover band might reinterpret a song in a style all their own.

What’s the inspiration behind this cocktail?
Piña Coladas and getting caught in the rain.
