Blue Hawaiian Cocktail Recipe

If you love fruity blue drinks then the Blue Hawaiian cocktail is sure to be a hit!

Nothing says vacation like the aqua blue of the ocean and of course, Hawaii is one of the best places to visit. 

The Blue Hawaiian is perfect for sipping poolside!

It’s also the sister of our Green Hawaiian cocktail for obvious reasons! 

If you love blue cocktails don’t miss our other hits like the Blue Lagoon and the popular Ocean Breeze Drink that I request all the time at home. 

Don’t want alcohol in your summer cocktail? Never fear, we have a mocktail Blue Hawaiian too! 

Read on for the recipe of both the Blue Lagoon Cocktail and the alcohol-free version.

What Is The Difference Between A Blue Hawaiian and A Blue Hawaii Cocktail?

Blue Hawaiian cocktail

You may have heard of both the Blue Hawaiian and the Blue Hawaii cocktails. 

In fact, they are two different drinks but only ever-so-slightly. 

The Blue Hawaiian uses coconut cream while the Blue Hawaii is a slightly lighter drink as the recipe calls for sweet and sour mix instead.

The ingredients for this cocktail are pretty simple and you can easily double the recipe to make more drinks for two or more people.

What alcohol is in a Blue Hawaiian cocktail?

The alcohol in this delicious blue cocktail is rum. 

It’s one of the many tropical rum cocktails such as the Blue Memories and of course, the classic Malibu Rum Punch Recipe.

The blue colour comes from the Blue Curacao in the drink and that also contains alcohol so this drink does pack a punch. 

As far as special equipment, you only need a cocktail shaker.

To make this deliciously tropical cocktail, you will need:

  • Blue Curacao
  • Light rum
  • Coconut cream
  • 4 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1 wedge of pineapple
  • 1 maraschino cherry
  • Ice

How To Make A Blue Hawaiian Mocktail

If you want to make the Blue Hawaiian into a mocktail, it is pretty easy. 

First of all you can omit the rum and then substitute the Blue Curacao for a Blue Curacao syrup that does not contain alcohol.

I like the one made by Torani

Bear in mind that the non-alcoholic syrup is much sweeter than original Blue Curacao so you need a lot less (try a splash and go from there). 

Keep the other ingredients the same without the rum.
