Island Jay Blue Hawaiian Recipe - Drink Tutorial #2

9 Comments

Welcome to our second Island Jay bartending class. Today we will be making the Blue Hawaiian. Not to be confused with the Blue HAWAII, the Blue Hawaiian is a spin on the classic pina colada and can be made on the rocks or frozen.

Ingredients


  • White Rum 3oz
    White rum, also known as silver rum, is the usual choice. Get something good like Island Jay's Rum (Coming 2022). Until then, Bacardi will be great.
  • 2oz Blue Curacao
    It's blue, just like the drink. I don't see the resemblance but I have been wrong before.
  • 4oz of Pineapple Juice
    Nothing funny about pineapple juice.
  • 1oz Cream of Coconut
    Get the good stuff. It is worth the extra buck. If you want your drink to be sweeter you can add more.
  • Ice
  • Pineapple Slice & Cherries for Garnish

Now you can make this shaken or stirred, but if you’re a James Bond fan like I am, go ahead and grab your cocktail shaker.

Instructions


Shaken, not stirred:

  • Add ice to a good glass or cocktail shaker
  • Pour in the ingredients.
  • If you are under 40, then Shake it up! If you are over 40, Shake, Shake, Shake Senora!
    If you do not understand these references, then simply shake up your drink to mix it.
  • Add ice to your Tiki Mug or any smaller size glass.
  • While straining out the ice, pour your drink into the Tiki Mug.
  • Add your pineapple slice and cherries to garnish.

Blended:

  • Add the ice and all ingredients directly into your blender.
  • Cover your blender and press the button that says Blend.
  • Keep blending for about 20-30 seconds. This is a good time to ask if anyone else wants a drink. Since they cannot hear you, they likely will not respond. More for you.
  • Pour into a Tiki Mug or glass of your choice.
  • Add your pineapple slice and cherries to garnish.

    Love both blue hawaiians and pina coladas. Discovered them in Hawaii at the tender age of 21. Will have to try this recipe. Thanks Island Jay.

    Debbi, you should not have to change anything. You may want to add more ice if it is not as thick as you want after blending.

    We have a frozen drink machine. What changes to the recipe would we need to make? It holds approximately 2.5 liters.

    Tip: If you want to control the sweetness, add or take away the cream of coconut syrup.
