The Blue Hawaii cocktail was born right here at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. In 1957, a sales representative of Dutch distiller Bols, asked legendary bartender Harry Yee to design a drink that featured their blue color of Curacao liqueur. After experimenting with several variations, Harry settled on a version somewhat different than the most popular version today, but with the signature blue color, pineapple wedge, and cocktail umbrella. It was Yee who named the cocktail that shares its name with the 1961 Elvis Presley film.
Combine all ingredients and mix well. If using ice, mix the ingredients in a blender. Serve in a tall glass. Garnish with a slice of pineapple and a cherry.
