Craft Cocktail: Blue Hawaii

Not to be confused with a Blue Hawaiian, which features cream of coconut, the tiki-inspired Blue Hawaii was invented in 1957 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village by head bartender Harry Yee. Originally created to showcase the blue color of Curaçao, our take on this classic ditches the bottled sour mix in lieu of fresh lemon juice and simple syrup. We also kick the party up a notch with the addition of vodka to the Plantation rum base. Not a luau for one, the recipe below serves 3-4 - garnishes NOT optional.   
 

9 oz         pineapple juice
1½ oz      lemon juice
¾ oz        simple syrup
1 oz         Giffard Blue Curaçao
1½ oz      Plantation 3  Star rum
1½ oz      vodka
