“We’re making the best, biggest Pina Colada of all time — 150 gallons of rum, we’re using about 100 bottles of creme de cacao, and 100 bottles of pineapple juice,” Sammy Musovic, owner of Selena Rosa, told 1010 WINS.

“We’re going to be doing it all day long until about midnight. We’ll be here all night. We expect to be serving over 5,000 Pina Coladas today,” Musovic said. “Come and enjoy the festivities.”

Commuters who have already tried the drink commented: 

“It’s very delicious, very refreshing,” one man said.

“Fantastic, it was a nice surprise for today,” one woman said.

“It was pretty good, not a bad way to spend a Monday afternoon,” another woman said.

The six-foot glass will be served at Selena Rosa Restaurant, located at 1712 Second Avenue, at 89th Street from noon to midnight.
