Enjoy the sunsational taste of the tropics with this fun and fruity ocean-blue summer cocktail. The Blue Hawaiian Cocktail is one of those refreshing drinks that are made for those long, lazy, summer days that you just don’t want to end.

In fact, just the name Blue Hawaiian evokes images of refreshingly cool, shimmery blue seas lapping against the warm sandy seashore while white gulls glide overhead.

Aside from its deliciously refreshing taste, another reason this libation is one of my favorite summer cocktails is that it’s so easy to make. Simply mix the ingredients together, shake and you’ll be tasting paradise in no time!

How to Make a Blue Hawaiian Cocktail

Similar to the Ocean Breeze and Blue Lagoon cocktails, the original Blue Hawaiian drink recipe calls for Blue Curaçao to get that dreamy blue color, and a splash of citrus juice for that fruity taste. Unlike these two drinks, the Blue Hawaiian cocktail recipe uses rum instead of vodka and adds some coconut for a truly tropical taste.

My version of this adult drink, however, takes things a bit further with a combination of white rum and pineapple rum for a taste that will truly transport you to your favorite island getaway!

This delicious summer party drink is already colorful and fruity, but when you add a tropical-themed cocktail pick or paper umbrella it becomes just as fun to look at as it is to drink!

Blue Hawaiian Cocktail Ingredients  

The ingredients in this deliciously fruity summer cocktail include:

Pineapple juice – Dole is my go-to brand for this cocktail

Blue Curaçao – gives this dreamy drink it’s captivating blue color

White Rum – When it comes to white rum, my favorite is Bacardi. However, feel free to use your favorite brand.

Pineapple Rum – takes the bite off the white rum, I prefer Malibu.

Coconut Cream – also known as cream of coconut, this blends perfectly with the pineapple for a tropical taste
