Blue Hawaii

Updated: Jul 15, 2020

The Blue Hawaii cocktail is so perfectly beachy that it's almost cliché. I said almost. It's just too delicious to be cliché. The story says it was invented in Hawaii in the 1950's by a bartender in Waikiki, in order to feature Blue Curaçao liqueur. With a glorious combination of tropical flavors and a color that looks like the waters of the South Pacific itself, this drink is like paradise in a glass.


  • 1 1/2 oz Rum

  • 3/4 oz Crème de Coconut

  • 3/4 oz Blue Curaçao

  • 2 oz Pineapple juice

  • Pineapple or other fresh fruit


  1. Fill a glass about half full with ice.

  2. Combine all liquid ingredients in a cocktail shaker.

  3. Shake for about 20 - 30 seconds to combine.

  4. Pour over ice and garnish with fresh fruit.


Serve in:

Any cocktail glass
