Happy New Year! Soft drinks in glass bottles may be a thing of the past but they do still hold their charm. I recently came across an entire shelf of bottled soda at a store and the blue ones immediately caught my attention. I had to bring a couple of bottles home as I figured it may be fun to make some cool Blue Hawaiian Mocktail for the New Year celebrations.
Mocktails for Teetotalers
For the uninitiated, mocktials are essentially non-alchoholic cocktails. These drinks are usually dressed up like a cocktail containing a mixture of fruit juices and soft drinks. They are a fun alternative for teetotalers.
Blue Hawaiian Cocktail
The Blue Hawaiian Cocktail is one of the most popular blue drinks out there. According to this site, the original recipe was created by Harry Yee, a bartender at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort and Spa in 1957. It contained light rum, vodka, blue curacao, pineapple juice, and sweet & sour mix. Today, many variations of this recipe uses creme de coconut to give it an even more pronounced tropical flavor.
Blue Hawaiian Mocktail
The recipe below was concocted using blue cream soda, pineapple juice, and some clarified key lime I had in my pantry. I even added a splash of rum in my first try but the concoction was more green than blue because of the yellow and brown colored additions. The second time round, I increased the amount of blue cream soda used and kept it virgin.

The yellow pineapple juice and clarified key lime still turned the blue cream soda slightly greenish. It tasted good and I am fine with the color. Please add a drop or two of blue food coloring to turn it back to a cyan blue if preferred. It is just as cool blue or green. 😉 Do give it a try.
Enjoy…..and have a wonderful day! 😎
