    A Blue Hawaiian is a blue citrus piña colada that is made using Ultima Replenishers electrolyte mocktini flavor called Coconut Pina Colada. To make a keto cocktail, we add a bit of coconut cream, rum, orange extract to the Ultima Mix. A traditional Blue Hawaiian uses Blue Curaçao, but this orange flavor liquor is loaded with sugar. So instead, we get that orange citrus flavor by adding orange extract or orange zest. Then we use a natural plant-based blue dye called Blue Butterfly Pea Powder to turn our keto tropical cocktail blue. If you want to make this drink a mocktail, you can easily do so by replacing the alcohol with water. By partnering with Ultima, we were able to make this delicious sugar-free cocktail using their new mocktail flavor, Coconut Piña Colada.

    Is Alcohol Allowed on the Keto Diet?

    You can moderately drink alcohol on a keto diet as long as you choose a zero-carb distilled spirit such as vodka, gin, or whiskey. These hard alcohol do not contain any sugar or carbs, making them keto diet-friendly alcohols! You should still limit the amount of alcohol you consume since alcohol still needs to be metabolized, which your body gives priority to burning fat. If you end up drinking too much alcohol, you can slow your weight loss.

    What is a Blue Hawaiian Cocktail?

    A traditional Blue Hawaiian has a bit more alcohol and is less sweet than the Blue Hawaiians created today. While today’s version typically includes coconut cream and is sweet and creamy, the original version is made with vodka, Puerto Rican rum, blue curaçao, pineapple lemon juice, and simple syrup. The original version was invented in 1957 by Harry Yee at the Hilton Hawaii Village. Yee created the cocktail when Bols approached him about inventing a cool blue drink with their new liquor, Blue Curaçao.

    Keto Blue Hawaiian

    The Blue Hawaiian is made keto by using the Coconut Piña Colada flavor Ultima mocktail mix, which is zero carbs and zero sugar. This mix replaces the need for pineapple juice, which is usually high in sugar. We also add an orange extract instead of sugary Blue Curacao. To make this frozen cocktail creamy, we add coconut cream, which is keto-approved. We also add Blue Butterfly Pea Powder as a natural dye to turn the cocktail blue.

    Ultima Mocktini

    Ultima’s mocktinis are super flavorful and taste just like the traditional sugary cocktail mixes. These mocktinis are sugar and carb free making them great for those who want to enjoy cocktails while on a keto diet. Each of the mocktini flavors are also packed with electrolytes, minerals, vitamin C, and zinc for full hydration and health benefits. You can easily make an ultima mocktini by adding water or alcohol to each mix.
