Thirsty Thursday!-Week 3- Blue Hawaiian

---- Blue Hawaiian ----

Blue Hawaiian 
Online Recipe: 
  • 1 oz. light rum
  • 1 oz. blue curacao
  • 2 oz. Pineapple Juice
  • 1 oz. cream of coconut 
What I put in mine:
  • 1 oz. coconut rum
  • 1 oz. blue curacao
  • 2 oz. pineapple juice 
  • Just a dash of cream of coconut
Ingredients (including brands):
Dole pineapple/orange/banana juice
Blue Curacao 
Cruzan Rum
Coco Real Cream of Coconut
Captain Morgan Coconut Rum

I put a new ranking system in place to better judge these drinks.  I hope this system helps you determine if you want to try it or not. We also have 3 additional judges, they call themselves THE MEN.
1= Terrible 
2= Bad
3= Okay
4= Good
5= Great!

There are 5 judging categories: 
1) Appearance:  How does the drink look? Does it look appetizing? Just by looking at it, would you order it at a bar? 

2) Taste: How well do the flavors blend? Is your first reaction "yum"? Does it taste good? 

3) Consistency: Is there anything that doesn't sit right with your mind while drinking? Is there anything funky about the consistency? 

4) Amount of Alcohol: Does it need more/less? Is there an appropriate amount of alcohol? 

5) Frequency: Would you drink more than one in one sitting?

And finally I asked myself and "THE MEN" if they would recommend the drink. 

Meet the judges and their scores: 

Jacob: He's my wonderful husband. :) 
His overall score: 4.2
Quote: "It needs more alcohol."
Recommend?: Yes, to a woman. 

Ben: He's our great friend. Smart man, that one. ;)
His overall score: 4
Quote: "It's fruity." 
Recommend?: No

Josh: My brother-in-law
His overall score: 4.2
Quote: "Tastes like Cabo."
Recommend?: Yes, to a woman or a man on vacation. 

My overall score: 4.4
Quote: "I would recommend this to someone that doesn't drink often. It's fruity and you can barely taste the alcohol."
Recommend?: Yes 

I hope you enjoy!
