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.
