Update: 4/16/2015: The Blue Hawaiian recipe has been updated with a few minor changes

Our “Tastes of Aulani” series returns to The ‘Olelo Room at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, to feature another signature Hawaiian cocktail. If you have mastered the Traditional Mai Tai and Mahi Mahi Tacos, now it’s time to test your skills with another classic: the Blue Hawaiian! Our bartenders at Aulani prepare this beverage at The ‘Olelo Room, Off the Hook and Wailana Pool Bar. However, if you’re at home, let cast member Keola show you how to make this beverage below.

Blue Hawaiian

  • 1 ounce House-made Sweet & Sour
  • 2 ounces Pineapple Juice
  • 1 ounce Old Lahaina Light Rum
  • 1 ounce Ocean Vodka
  • 1/2 ounce BOLS Blue Curaçao
  • Pineapple wedge and pineapple leaf, for garnish
  1. Pour sweet & sour, pineapple juice, rum and Blue Curaçao in mixing glass; fill with ice and shake for 30 seconds.
  2. Pour into tall glass; garnish with pineapple wedge and pineapple leaf.


  • The original as created by Harry Yee at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in 1957 had vodka but Disney has never added vodka to their Blue Hawaiians. Here’s the version from the Tambu Lounge as an example:

    Tambu Lounge – Polynesian Resort

    1/2 oz. Light Rum
    1 oz. Blue Curacao
    4 oz. Pineapple juice
    2 oz. Sour mix
    Garnish: Pineapple flag

    Serve in a Tiki mug

  • Stacey try this one if you’re looking for another recipe:

    1 oz pineapple juice
    .5 oz lemon juice
    .5 simple syrup
    .25 oz blue curacao
    .75 oz vodka
    .75 light rum

  • The recipe doesn’t say vodka. It isn’t very blue.

    • My apologies, Stacey! Our Food and Beverages team made a few adjustments to the recipe and I have updated it in the text above!
