If You Like Piña Coladas

There is a very popular song by Jimmy Buffet that goes like this.

If you like piña coladas
And getting caught in the rain...

Sadly, I'm not fond of Jimmy Buffet and I DO NOT like coladas (coconuts.) However, I LOVE
piñas (pineapples.) In California that means I usually drink orange juice.

Imagine my delight to find that in Lima freshly made pineapple juice has been available at every restaurant I've eaten at. When the server asks what I would like to drink (¿Qué te gustaría beber?) the melodic sound of jugo de piña rolls off my tongue.
