Is a Blue Hawaiian the same as a Blue Hawaii?

While both cocktails are shaken with blue curaçao and pineapple juice, one look through the hurricane glass and it’s easy to tell the difference between the Blue Hawaiian and the Blue Hawaii! The former is creamy with coconut while the other is clear.

Our Blue Hawaiian cocktail recipe creates a creamy, sweet coconut cocktail that looks more like a Piña Colada with a touch of blue. The Blue Hawaii cocktail recipe however makes a clear, fruity cocktail without creamy coconut. Vodka is added to the rum base with a sweet and sour mix.

How to make a Blue Hawaii cocktail

The Blue Hawaii cocktail recipe is super simple. Split the Wray and Nephew rum equally with Skyy vodka, pouring 20 ml of each. Reduce the blue curaçao by 15 ml and add bit more pineapple juice (90ml). Add 30 ml of sweet and sour mix or simple syrup with a squeeze of fresh lime. Then shake and strain over fresh crushed ice and garnish with pineapple.

Why Is my Blue Hawaiian green?

When you mix pineapple juice into your blue curacao, the combination turns your Blue Hawaii cocktail green. Stick with freshly squeezed juice if you prefer less of a green tint. If you use a store bought, pasteurised version it will give the cocktail a more noticeable colour change.

How strong is Blue Curaçao?

Blue Curaçao was originally made in the 19th century by Dutch settlers in the Caribbean. It’s a medium strength spirit with around 25% ABV’s. It’s a little sweet and a little zesty and used in many of cocktails to give them a blue tint, like in our Blue Marg or the Blue Martini.

The Mai Tai tops the charts as the most popular drink in Hawaii. It’s a staple on every menu on the island even though it was created at Trader Vics in Oakland, California in the 40s. The Piña Colada is a close second.

Our Blue Hawaiian cocktail recipe holds a 15% ABV ranking, which is the equivalent to a glass of wine. Blend it with ice, and it’s diluted to much weaker sip, about 7% ABV.
