This drink is obviously named after the goofy 70s song that sticks in your head for days. I'm hoping that effect will carry over to the drink and eventually you'll say "all right already, dammit, I'll make the drink!"
The namesake song was released in 1979, capping off a decade of ugliness. People with ugly hair wearing ugly clothes, driving their ugly cars to the disco for some cheesy dancing to take their minds off the ugly economy.
I count a surging interest in piña coladas and my own birth as some of the highlights of a decade that was otherwise pretty tough on everyone. It's pretty tough to improve upon such a classic drink, but I think we really nailed it here.
