The Blue Hawaii, not to be confused with the Blue Hawaiian, was invented by bartender Harry Yee at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort & Spa in the 1950s.


Original Harry Yee recipe

In a 12-ounce glass, put ice, then add in this order:

  • 3 oz. Pineapple juice
  • 1 oz. Sweet & sour mix
  • 1/2 oz. Blue Curacao
  • 3/4 oz. Vodka
  • 3/4 oz. Light rum

Stir gently, garnish with pineapple slice and vanda orchid.

From "Beachbum Berry Remixed" by Jeff "Beachbum" Berry

  • 2 oz Pineapple juice
  • 3/4 oz Fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 oz Sugar syrup
  • 3/4 oz Blue Curacao
  • 1/2 tsp Cream or Half & Half
  • 1 1/2 oz Vodka

Shake well with plenty of crushed ice. Pour unstrained into a tall glass.

Writes Berry: "The proportions of this 1980 knockoff make for a Blue Hawaii with more heft, while the dash of cream not only gives the drink a nice opalescent hue, but a "fuller" mouth-feel.
