What Is The Difference Between A Blue Hawaiian and A Blue Hawaii 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.
Blue Hawaiian Cocktail Ingredients
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.
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
How To Make A Blue Hawaiian Cocktail
This drink is really easy to make and all you need is a cocktail shaker or mason jar to mix the ingredients.
In a shaker, add in ice, coconut cream, pineapple juice, light rum, and Blue Curacao. Shake well.
Pour into a glass with crushed iced.
Top with a wedge of pineapple and a maraschino cherry.
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.
