"The Blue Hawaii cocktail was born at Honolulu’s Kaiser Hawaiian Village. In 1957, a sales rep of Dutch distiller Bols asked legendary bartender Harry Yee to design a drink that featured its blue color of curaçao liqueur. Yee 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.” This is the original! We enjoyed them on luau night of our Hawaiian cruise!
