Cocktail Friday: a Blue Hawaiian

I still don’t have a lot of time to make blogpost, because of working on the house. But I try to keep up with the Cocktail Friday. Just because this cocktail Friday gives such a nice start of the weekend;-). For the Cocktail Friday this week, I made a Blue hawaiian. Read more about this cocktail:

The Blue Hawaiian is the brother/sister of the Blue Hawaii. In 1957 the Barkeeper (Harry Yee) of the Hilton Hawaii Village was asked by someone of Bols to make a cocktail with Blue curaçao. He made one with Blue curaçao, vodka, Rum, Sweet and Sour mix and pineapple juice (source: Wikipedia). The Blue Hawaiian is a little bit different, because it is with Blue Curacao, rum, coconut cream and pineapple juice.
Because of the coconut cream and pineapple , it almost tastes as a Pina Colada. But the Blue curaçao gives it quite another color and it also makes the taste differ from a Pina Colada.

The funny thing with this cocktail is, that the color is more green than blue, so the name would better be Green Hawaiian;-). That would also have made the difference with the Blue Hawaii Cocktail a little bit more clear.
But if it’s Blue or Green, it’s still a nice cocktail if you like the coconut taste. Here you find the Recipe:

Edit: This is a post from my old Blog Photos for foodies. I quit with this Blog, but it didn’t feel good to lose all the recipes, that’s why I copied all the posts to Cakes and Pumps and later to Goodlives. This post is written in 2015 by myself.
