The blue Hawaiian cocktail is a popular night club beverage which along with its wonderful appearance on the outside gives a sweet and sour punch in taste as well. The drink is originated back to 1957 when it was invented initially.
The story behind this drink is still pretty popular in bars all around the globe. Harry Yee used to be a well known bartender from Honolulu. He produced this work of art while working at the Hawaiian Village Resort in Hawaii. The story specifically states that a Dutch alcohol merchant asked Harry to create a new drink for him utilizing BOLS (a new brand of Curacao alcohol from the era). As a result, Harry Yee came up with this exceptional cocktail; known these days as Blue Hawaii Cocktail. Multiple improvised versions of this cocktail have been created over the years in different bars. However those variations contain all original ingredients along with some new additions.
