It’s that time again! Time to chill in the Virtual Hot Tub with a refreshing cocktail, letting the week’s stresses flow away. And what a great cocktail I have to share with you this time!
The Blue Hawaiian is a classic cocktail, simply delicious and full of summer excitement. There’s plenty of time till summer, so get your kit together and practice making this tipple ready for those warm evenings. I highly recommend a blender is used for this recipe, rather than just shaking.
- White rum
- Blue curacao
- Coconut cream
- Pineapple juice
First of all, get that blender prepped and ready. Pour in 2 measures of the white rum and one measure of the blue curacao (for one person). Add 3 tablespoons of the coconut milk and a few ice cubes. Give the mixture a quick 30 second mix in the blender, to get the colour even.
Then pour in the pineapple juice. The recommended amount is 3 tablespoons, but I would experiment here and add a more if required. Now give the mixture a full blitz in the blender until it’s frothy, man.
The result is a beautifully fruity cocktail that is ideal to sip and chill out with. I highly recommend some Hawaiian music (on wax, of course) to complete the mood.
