Harry Yee was a bartender at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort and Spa when, in 1957, he was asked by a representative of Bols to create a new drink using the company's new Blue Curacao liqueur. The Blue Hawaii (or often called Blue Hawaiian) was born. There are numerous variations of this recipe, many using Creme de Coconut, but this is the authentic recipe.

Prep Time: 1 minute

Total Time: 1 minute


  • 3/4 oz. Light Rum
  • 3/4 oz. Vodka
  • 1/2 oz. Blue Curacao
  • 3 oz. Pineapple Juice
  • 1 oz. Sweet & Sour Mix


Combine all ingredients and mix well. If using ice, mix the ingredients in a blender. Serve in a tall glass. Garnish with a slice of pineapple and a cherry.
