Back in late 1979 at a farewell party for me (I was returning home to Sydney Australia after livng in USA 7 yrs) One of My Puerto Rican workmates made an alcoholic drink very similar but it had pineapple & cream NO it WAS NOT a Pina Colada Unfortunately, I lost touch with Gladys But if anyone out there knows what I am talking about I certainly would appreciate it I guess it was a combination of this & something else with a very similar name THANKS IN ADVANCE I certainly will give this a go though
