Blue Hawaiian Long Islands are a concoction of alllll the liquor plus blue curacao and some 7up. Not for the faint-hearted, make sure you enjoy this colorful drink in moderation!
Blue Hawaiian Long Island
You guys know my love for blue drinks and fun cocktails is pretty intense. Most recently I posted this awesome Baby Blue Punch, and I know you all love my frozen raspberry pina colada.
Long Islands get a pretty bad rap. Mostly from people who try and tackle these as an all-night cocktail, and drink too many and then feel like death. They pack a pretty significant punch in the alcohol department, so use caution or cut these a bit more with some extra sprite if you lean towards lightweight. That’s generally my plan of attack.
I don’t know what kind of magic happens in a traditional Long Island to make a glass that’s 3/4 of the way filled with liquor taste like there is very little actual booze inside it, but I like it – either way.
We served a variation of these a couple weeks ago in Sacramento at the IFBC expo, and they went over very well. They are super festive for a themed party, or anytime you want a slightly tropical cocktail with a kick.
