The Bahia cocktail dates back to pre-prohibition and is the ancestor of the Pina Colada. In 1972 he appeared in "Trader Vic's Bartender's Guide" and all over the world we stick to this recipe which is made in a blender with rum, pineapple juice and coconut cream (and not malibu as unfortunately we can see in some fake recipes on the web).

Bahias are cocktails very similar to the famous Pina Colada and Chi Chi. What differentiates the Bahia de la Pina is in particular the choice of rum, in the "Trader Vic's Bartender's Guide" we invite you to use 2 rums (Jamaican and Puerto Rican) in equal parts.

Bahia is a sweet and exotic recipe named after a state in Brazil.
