Blue Hawaiian Cocktail

Day 8


BLUE HAWAIIAN COCKTAIL
5 shots out of 5



Why have I not tried this cocktail before??  I have absolutely found my new favorite blended drink, EVER!!  The only time I've ever heard of this cocktail before was years ago when I went to Hawaii with a group of friends and one of the guys from our group had ordered.....well I guess a few Blue Hawaiian's because when we found him at one of the bars he was quite red in the face, singing karaoke.  I never got to try it, but I did remember that his drink was quite blue.

This is a simple cocktail to make.  I know there are non-blended versions of this drink, but I went with the blended one instead.  GREAT choice on my part!!  This is a total cocktail I could see myself drinking poolside as well as hanging out at the house with a group of friends.  I have a feeling after typing up this blog that that's exactly what I'll be doing at the next get together here.

I have discovered in my 8 days of writing this blog, that I am more of a Rum Cocktail Lady, then a Vodka Cocktail Lady.  If you would have asked me before writing this blog which one I preferred, I would have told you vodka hands down.  Yea, not anymore!  I even prefer my rum Drunken Gummy Bears over my vodka Drunken Gummy Bears (recipe is on my "Other Fun Stuff To Try" tab).

I have given tonight's drink 5 shots out of 5, but am seriously considering giving it 8!  I hope you try tonight's cocktail and love it!  

Here is the recipe for a blended Blue Hawaiian:

  • 1 shot light rum
  • 1/2 shot blue Curaçao
  • 2 shots pineapple juice
  • 1 shot cream of coconut


Crush up a good handful of ice and then put it into the blender.  Add the rum, blue curaçao, pineapple juice and cream of coconut.  Blend the ingredients together until your ice is completely broken down.  If you do not blend it enough, your ice will become a little crunchy and you don't want to eat your Blue Hawaiian, trust me!  Once the ice is blended in all you have left to do is pour and ENJOY!!  I sure know I did.....as did my husband and our neighbors!!

I sure hope you enjoy this cocktail as much as I did!!

  2. This was a "sort of" cocktail, too :) I didn't have any cream of coconut so I used a shot of the Malibu rum and a half shot of regular rum instead. I'd give it 4 shots as it was. If I pick up some cream of coconut, I'll give it another try. It was a bit of a blended smurf :)
