Tropical Martinis - BLUE HAWAII MARTINI

I bought a bottle of berry flavored, turquoise blue Maraschino cherries and I am always looking for new martini recipes to use them. Anything with Blue Curacao is a natural for a blue cherry and I always think "tropical" when a drink is colored blue!

So I tossed in some coconut rum, vanilla vodka and some pineapple juice with the Blue Curacao in a variation on the famous Blue Hawaii cocktail created by bartender Harry Yee at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort and Spa in 1957 for Bols new liqueur, Blue Curacao. Here is the authentic original recipe for a Blue Hawaii cocktail - note there is no coconut in it:
  • 3/4 oz. Light Rum
  • 3/4 oz. Vodka
  • 1/2 oz. Blue Curacao
  • 3 oz. Pineapple Juice
  • 1 oz. Sweet & Sour Mix
Cheers and ALOHA!
