Ingredients for a Blue Hawaiian Cocktail Drink:
- 2 Parts Malibu Coconut Rum
- 2 Parts Canned Pineapple Juice
- 1 Part Blue Curacao
- Crushed Ice
- Maraschino Cherries, for garnish
- Pineapple Rings, for garnish
- Party Toothpicks, for individual serving garnish
- Punchbowl, if serving as a party punch
- Tall Glasses
Instructions for Making a Blue Hawaiian Cocktail or a Blue Hawaiian Party Punch:
- Choose a drink quantity. Decide if you will be making a punch or individual servings. If making individual drinks, consider measuring ingredient parts in ounces. If making a punch, use bottles of similar size for equal parts or measure out the quantities in larger sizes—such as cups rather than ounces.
- Gather Blue Hawaiian Ingredients. Begin your Blue Hawaiian with quality ingredients, such as fresh pineapple juice and your favorite brands of liquor.
- Combine Blue Hawaiian ingredients and mix well. If preparing an individual drink, add the rum, pineapple juice, and Blue Curacao to a cocktail shaker filled with crushed ice, shake and pour into a tall serving glass. If making punch, mix the ingredients in a large container and pour over ice in a punchbowl when ready to serve.
- Garnish the Blue Hawaiian cocktails. If serving individual drinks, thread a few pieces of fresh pineapple and maraschino cherries onto decorative picks. If making a punch, simply float the fresh fruit onto the top of the Blue Hawaiian in the punchbowl.
