With its eye-catching ocean blue hue and tropical taste, the blue Hawaiian punch cocktail is perfect for summer. This refreshing cocktail is easy to batch, making it a brilliant option for parties and barbecues. Blue Hawaiian punch has a delicious coconut and pineapple taste, which is fantastic for those moments you want to sip on something boozy to help cool you down on a balmy summer's day. It's incredibly simple to make – all you need is some coconut rum, blue curaçao (which adds a hint of citrus and gives this cocktail its beautiful color), pineapple juice, and some ice. That's it! Even home bartending novices will be able to master this tasty tipple in no time at all.
The main flavors in blue Hawaiian punch are coconut (thanks to coconut rum), pineapple, and a subtle citrus note, which comes from the blue curaçao. It's a tropical delight that will transport you to sunny shores without you ever having to leave home.
– You can use either crushed ice or ice cubes to make this cocktail.
– To make a frozen blue Hawaiian punch, put the ingredients into a blender and blitz it. You might need to add a little extra ice, depending on how thick you want your cocktail to be.
– If you're taking a break from alcohol or want to make a kid-friendly version, you can make a virgin blue Hawaiian cocktail by swapping coconut extract for the rum and blue Gatorade for the curaçao.
Serve your blue Hawaiian punch in any glass you like. You'll never go wrong with a classic Collins glass, but you can serve it in mason jars, hurricane glasses, wine glasses – whatever works for you.
Absolutely! If you're making blue Hawaiian punch ahead of time, combine the rum, curaçao, and pineapple juice without adding the ice. Then simply cover and refrigerate the punch.
Pour rum, curaçao, pineapple juice, and crushed ice into a cocktail shaker. Stir to combine, then pour into a chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish with a wedge of fresh pineapple and a maraschino cherry.
