The Martini Club Presents...The Blue Hawaiian

Since I'm leaving for Kauai on Tuesday, I thought I would include a recipe for the Blue Hawaiian. I'll be sure to try one of these next week. (Or twenty).

Blue Hawaiian (recipe from Leite's Culinary)

1 oz light rum
1 oz blue Curacao
1 oz cream of coconut, such as Coco Lopez
2 oz pineapple juice
Fresh pineapple and cherries for garnish

Add rum, Curacao, cream of coconut and pineapple juice to shaker with ice. Shake well....then pour into a cocktail glass with ice. If you would like a frozen Blue Hawaiian, then put everything into a blender with 1 cup of ice and blend until smooth.

Enjoy while watching the sun set over the ocean,

Yay!! So does this mean your tickets are intact once again? I am SO envious of you. And this is the prettiest drink ever. Happy Martini Club Sunday!!

Hey Carolyn! Yes, we got the tickets fixed and will be on our way this week. Thank the good God!

I am looking forward to a nice selection of tropical drinks.

Penny you will love it there. We got married on a little beach a few miles past Hanalei and it's so beautiful. You've got to go to the end of the road and hike the Na Pali coast. The whole coast hike is too long for a day trip, but the first beach is just 2 miles or so in so it makes a perfect day hike. The only problem is that it can get really muddy if it's been raining. I've done it in my tevas so those or sneakers are fine. I'm so jealous.
