It is spring and I am stuck in a tropical drink grind.  Every new cocktail that I think up is tropical in style.  I guess I am hoping that one of these drinks takes me back to an island.  Either way, today’s drink is awesome.  It is heavy on pineapple and coconut like a pina colada, but with a nice blue flair.

Blue Hawaiian

  • 1 oz. Light Rum
  • 2 oz. Pineapple Juice
  • 1 oz. Blue Curacao
  • 1 oz. Coconut flavored Rum or Creme de Coconut
  • 1/2 oz. Simple Syrup

On the Rocks

This cocktail can be made on the rocks or blended.  I prefer it on the rocks.  Mix all of the ingredients in a nice glass filled with ice.

Garnish with a mini-parasol, pineapple and a cherry.

A great drink with the flavor of the islands.  You can’t go wrong with this one.

  1. This reminds me of a "hunch punch" style drink that we did with grain alcohol, blue curacao, lemonade and oranges called Blue Whales. Boy those were the days!

  2. I remember when I bought my Party Bullet so I could make drinks like this whenever I wanted. Unfortunately, the novelty wore off. This recipe, however, makes me want to bring it out again.
