Blue Hawaiian Cocktail Recipe
Similar to the Ocean Breeze and Blue Lagoon cocktails, the Blue Hawaiian drink recipe calls for Blue Curaçao to get that dreamy blue color, and a splash of citrus juice for that fruity taste. The Blue Hawaiian cocktail recipe, however, uses rum instead of vodka and adds some coconut for a truly tropical taste.
My version of this adult drink takes things a bit further for a taste that will truly transport you to your favorite island getaway! Here’s how to make it:
This recipe makes enough for two 8 ounce glasses
Blue Hawaiian Cocktail Ingredients
- 2 cups ice
- 1/2 cup chilled pineapple juice
- 4 oz Blue Curaçao
- 4 oz White Rum
- 1 oz Pineapple Rum
- 2 oz Coconut Cream (aka cream of coconut)
How to Make a Blue Hawaiian Cocktail
- Place the ice, pineapple juice, Blue Curaçao, rum and cream of coconut into a cocktail shaker.
- Shake well to combine.
- Divide evenly among 2 glasses with ice.
- Garnish each with an orange slice, lemon slice, pineapple wedge, or a cherry. And don’t forget the paper umbrella!
Now all that’s left is to enjoy, or komo i ka as they say in Hawaii.
