The addition of Fernet-Vallet liqueur to Juan Coronado’s riff on the Piña Colada, at Washington, D.C.’s Colada Shop, gives the classic blended cocktail a bracing menthol and herbal note that refreshingly offsets the drink’s rich creaminess.



  1. Add all the ingredients into a blender with ice and blend.

  2. Pour into a large stemless wine glass.

  3. Garnish with a pineapple leaf.
