El Pirata – My Favorite Rincon Sunset Drink!

Pirata drink recipe

So if you have read more than a couple of our blog posts, you’ll understand that we travel all over Puerto Rico, and that we totally embrace the fact that rum is THE spirit of choice on the island. I must admit that we enjoy a rum beverage at the end of every day.

While we don’t get "out west" in Puerto Rico very often, when we do, we make a point to toast the sunset at Villa Cofresi with a Pirate Special. This amazing concoction of rum and coconut is devilishly delicious.

Pirata drink recipe

Years ago, the bartenders used to make the drinks individually, so you could watch them mix it up. But now, high volume requires them to prepare large batches ahead of time, though you will still see them whack the top off of your green coconut with a machete.

Their recipe is secret, though there is a YouTube video in which one of their bartenders describes what is in it.

Apparently, it contains four types of rum, a touch of chocolate, and coconut that add up to a delicious drink that packs a punch. We really like it, and thought that it is so delicious that we tried to make it at home!

Pirata drink recipe

We changed it a bit because we couldn’t get ours to taste exactly like Villa Cofresi’s Pirata,(and we like a sweeter drink) but this recipe tastes pretty good to us …

  • 1 oz gold rum
  • 1 oz clear rum
  • 1 oz coconut rum
  • ¼ oz 151 rum
  • ½ oz creme de cacao (chocolate liquor)
  • 4 oz coconut water
  • 2 oz coconut milk
  • 1 oz creme of coconut (Coco Lopez)

Blend all the ingredients with lots of ice, serve in a green coconut (or a glass if you don’t have a green coconut), top with a dash of cinnamon, and enjoy the sunset!

Remember to drink responsibly, and never drink & drive.
