Blue Hawaii Classic Cocktail

Blue Hawaii Classic Cocktail

You may know the Elvis Presley movie, Blue Hawaii, but this cocktail was created several years before the King ever swiveled his hips Hawaiian-style. In 1957 bartender, Harry Yee at the Hilton Hawaiian Village was asked by Bols to create a new drink to introduce its Blue Curacao liqueur. Harry added light rum, vodka and pineapple to the liquor and came up with this now iconic drink.
