Blue Hawaiian Cocktail (Shandy) – This summery frozen summer drink is a tangy twist on a Shandy which is beer with lemonade. The Hawaiian word for Shandy is “Hula Hula” and “Pineapple” is called “Tropic.” When working the fresh fruit, always cut the pineapple around the top of the pinecone, so that the pineapple and its juices can be easily released when you squeeze it.
