Blue Hawaii Hawaiian Cocktail Recipe

The Blue Hawaii cocktail was invented by Harry Yee, a legendary bartender at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki. It was the year 1957 when Yee was asked by a sales representative of Dutch distiller Bols to create a drink that featured their blue color of Curaçao liqueur. There are several variations of this popular drink. Some people prefer vodka over rum. Others add sweet and sour to the mixture. Also, the cocktail can either be served on the rocks or blended as a tropical frozen treat.
