There are two versions of the drink, both originating in Puerto Rico. The name piña colada (Spanish) literally means "strained pineapple", a reference to the freshly pressed and strained pineapple juice used in the drink's preparation. The earliest known story states that in the 19th century, Puerto Rican pirate Roberto Cofresi, to boost his crew's morale, gave them a beverage or cocktail that contained coconut, pineapple and white rum. This was what would be later known as the famous piña colada. With his death in 1825, the recipe for the piña colada was lost. Historian Haydée Reichard disputes this version of the story.
Although it has become acceptable to serve a margarita in a wide variety of glass types, ranging from cocktail and wine glasses to pint glasses and even large schooners, the drink is traditionally served in the eponymous margarita glass, a stepped-diameter variant of a cocktail glass or champagne coupe. According to cocktail historian David Wondrich, the margarita is related to a popular Mexican drink, the Daisy (margarita is Spanish for "daisy"), remade with tequila instead of brandy. It became popular during Prohibition as people drifted over the border for alcohol.
The cocktail may have been invented by a bartender at Chasen’s, a restaurant in West Hollywood, to serve then-child actress Shirley Temple. However, other claims to its origin have been made. Temple herself was not a fan of the drink, as she told Scott Simon, in an NPR interview in 1986: "The saccharine sweet, icky drink? Yes, well... those were created in the probably middle 1930s by the Brown Derby Restaurant, Hollywood and I had nothing to do with it. But, all over the world, I am served that. People think it's funny. I hate them. Too sweet!" In 1988 Temple brought a lawsuit to prevent a bottled soda version using her name from happening.
The original Mudslide was allegedly invented during the 1950s at the Wreck Bar and Grill on Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands, where the bar still stands. It was a bartender known as Old Judd who is credited with creating the mudslide, and it is still the island's signature drink. In its heyday—and in the bars of chain restaurants where this cocktail still appears—the drink was often made with a mix that came in a plastic bottle. Some people also added a scoop of ice cream to the mix.
The first DR. Vodka is said to have been created in 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada by performer Chloe Louise Crawford, during a Diet Coke shortage. The drink is usually served in a large glass, over ice with a long metal, reusable straw. For extra satisfaction, the original Dr. Pepper can be substituted for the Cream Soda Dr. Pepper. This is especially pleasant around the holidays. After discovering “Dr. Vodka” over drinks such as Dr. Malibu, Dr. Julio

Modern pizza evolved from similar flatbread dishes in Naples, Italy, in the 18th or early 19th century. The word pizza was first documented in A.D. 997 in Gaeta and successively in different parts of Central and Southern Italy. Pizza was mainly eaten in Italy and by emigrants from there. The common denominator in the Supreme pizza seems to be a hearty combination of both meat and vegetable toppings, with at least two kinds of each represented. The supreme title stems from the sheer amount and variety of toppings included. Keep this in mind when you order a supreme pizza – they vary from pizzeria to pizzeria.

Many food historians credit 16-year-old Lionel Sternberger, who in 1924 decided to slap a slice of American cheese onto a cooking hamburger at his father's Pasadena, California, sandwich shop, the Rite Spot. He liked it, and so did his dad, and thus the cheeseburger was born. Common lore claims that the original fry was born in Namur in francophone Belgium, where the locals were particularly fond of fried fish. When the River Meuse froze over one cold winter in 1680, people ostensibly fried potatoes instead of the small fish they were accustomed to, and the fry was born.
