Blue Hawaii

Blue Hawaii cocktail

The Blue Hawaii cocktail is a classic tropical drink that is often served in the U.S. with pineapple, coconut, and blue Curaçao. The origins of this cocktail are not clear, but it likely came into being in the 1950s or 1960s at either Trader Vic’s restaurant in Los Angeles or Don the Beachcomber restaurant in Hollywood.

There are many variations of this cocktail around the world, for example with mango or by replacing Curacao with dark rum. If you’re trying to stay cool on a hot summer day it might not be the best option. In fact, this drink is so loaded with alcohol that you could end up feeling like you’ve just spent an afternoon at sea.
