Blue Hawaii Cocktail

Bartender Harry Yee created the Blue Hawaii cocktail in 1957 while he was working at the Hawaiian Village in Waikiki. A Bols sales representative came to Yee asking for a drink made with the company’s blue curaçao liqueur and the Blue Hawaii is the result of his tinkering. Yee was also known for possibly being the first to add banana to a Daiquiri as well as his extravagant and unique garnishes. Apparently the original was shaken but it was commonly served frozen too. The original also called for sour mix so I opted for a house made sour mix with equal parts of lemon, lime and simple.


  • 22.5mL White Rum (0.75 oz)
  • 22.5mL Vodka (0.75 oz)
  • 22.5mL Blue Curacao (0.75 oz)
  • 90mL Pineapple Juice (3 oz)
  • 22.5mL House Sour Mix (0.75 oz)


  1. Combine all the ingredients into your cocktail shaker
  2. Shake with ice
  3. Strain into a cocktail glass with crushed ice
  4. Garnish with a pineapple wedge, cherry and umbrella
  1. 1 Part Fresh Lemon Juice
  2. 1 Part Fresh Lime Juice
  3. 1 Part Simple Syrup
