We just returned from the Big Island of Hawaii and I am already dreaming of planning a return trip. I decided this Blue Hawaii Drink Cocktail Recipe was the perfect tropical cocktail to enjoy while I look through Hawaii pictures.
Blue Hawaii Drink
You may see this recipe listed as both a Blue Hawaii Drink and a Blue Hawaiian cocktail. I think this may be because Blue Hawaiian Helicopter tours started coming up when people searched instead of a cocktail. LOL!
This tropical drink makes me dream of lounging by the swimming pool and doing absolutely nothing! Having my glass filled with this tropical cocktail and just soaking up the sun.
I am so ready to make this happen!

All of these cocktails are super easy to make and taste amazing!
How do you make a Blue Hawaiian?
This is honestly a super easy tropical cocktail to make. You can decide if you want it over rocks or frozen.
All you have to do is combine Malibu rum, blue curacao, pineapple juice.
I have seen people use a sweet and sour mix if they want a different flavor from pineapple juice.
If you want to make this drink a little creamier you can add in coconut cream or coconut milk and then blend it with ice.
What type of Rum tastes best in the Blue Hawaii Cocktail?
You will want to stick with Malibu rum or any light-colored rum so your drink stays blue.
Dark rums will change the color and you will lose the Blue Hawaii Drink magic.
What do you garnish a Blue Hawaii Drink with?
I garnish the Blue Hawaii cocktail with a pineapple slice and maraschino cherry. You can also garnish the drink with an orange slice.
Don't forget the paper cocktail umbrella to give your drink a totally festive look!
What type of glass should you use for the Blue Hawaiian?
This really depends on the look you are going for. There are so many cool choices including Hawaiian themed glasses. The standard glass would be a hurricane glass.
