Blue Hawaii

Blue Hawaii cocktail with light rum, citrus vodka, blue curaçao, pineapple juice, lemon juice, and simple syrup.

Not to be confused with the Blue Hawaiian (which contains cream of coconut), this drink harkens back to 1957, when an enterprising Hawaiian bartender invented it to show off the gorgeous blue curaçao color.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake all ingredients with ice, and strain into a tall ice-filled glass. You can also make it as a frozen drink – just add the ingredients plus one glass of ice to a blender and put it on the highest setting, until you can’t hear any more large chunks banging around.

Like most tropical drinks, this one will bear its weight in silly garnishes – but we think it’s just as classy served on the rocks with a slice of pineapple.

Great app!

Yes! The latest update has fixed the bugs that annoyed me and added the features I was after. Love the curated list of cocktails! My favorite cocktail app (and I've tried a few).
