Not So Blue Hawaii


You may have guessed that we dislike anything that smacks of fakery. Ersatz maraschino cherries, whipped cream vodka (who created that?!), and of course, blue curacao, an orange liqueur colored, yes, blue. Now, ironically, the only thing different about blue curacao versus regular curacao is the color; it tastes the same no matter how you sip it. The Blue Hawaii was created by bartender Harry Yee in 1957 as a promotion for Bols’ newest product blue curacao. Since the latter product goes in our Spirits Hall of Shame, we opted to make the Blue Hawaii not so blue after all.
