Hawaiian cocktails: How to make a Haupia July 22 2013

drink umbrellaHawaii is famous for many things: beaches, sunsets, relaxing, food and entertainment. Hawaii also has a flare for great adult beverages (as well as non-alcoholic beverages). One of the most popular cocktails on Hawaii is the Haupia. The Haupia is a smooth, blended drink that can almost be mistaken for a smoothie; but a smoothie it is not. The ingredients for this island favorite are:

  • 1 ¼ oz. of White Crème de Cacao
  • 1 ¼ oz. of Malibu Rum
  • 1 oz. of Coco Lopez Syrup
  • 1 oz. Smoothie Mix

Add all the ingredients together and blend to perfection. Serve in a classic lowball glass and relax in your favorite island ware. And don’t forget a slice of pineapple for garnish! Or add a novelty plastic umbrella for the full island effect.

For those of you who are looking for something a little more refreshing (without the alcohol content), the Blue Hawaii is a popular non alcoholic drink for adults and kids. The Blue Hawaii is an Elvis Presley inspired drink that’s high in flavor.

Here’s how to make a Blue Hawaii: grab a packet of blue-colored Kool Aid mix with a liter of club soda. Add sugar (or sugar substitute for the low calorie version) to suit your taste. Place a touch of pineapple juice into the bowl for added color and flavor. Add more pineapple for more taste! Grab an ice cream scoop and start to add into a separate glass and pour the drink over the top for a refreshing tropical-flavored drink. Your kids (and you) will love the taste of a Hawaiian style root beer float! Ask for these drinks at your favorite vacation spot in Hawaii, or add them to your home blender and imagine that you are relaxing on the beach in front of your favorite Hawaiian Island!
