Have a Hawaiian Martini to feel like you’re at the beach! This martini recipe has all the flavors of Hawaii: pineapple, orange, and coconut!
I really wish I was in Hawaii this summer, but since I can’t be there I can bring a taste of the islands to me with this martini!
I’m not complaining because I was just in Hawaii this past February, but man I wish I was there now! It’s always fun to get away during school breaks but then come summer…it’s a lot of weeks at home without anything to do.
Plus – Hawaii.
We just learned that Alaska Airlines will now fly direct from Sacramento to the Big Island. We’ve always done Maui because when we look at flights we’re wooed by the direct flight they have…but now we have another option.
Of course, Jordan refuses to go to the Big Island. She’s terrified of volcanos; even years ago when we’d mentioned it she was scared of visiting Volcanos National Park and I told her “don’t worry, that volcano won’t ever erupt again.”
Sounds like I need two trips to Hawaii: one for her and one for just Mel and I. Ha, if only!
Until I can fly away to tropical islands, this Hawaiian Martini will keep me company. Full disclosure: I wasn’t even planning to post this recipe. I created it on National Martini Day just because it felt like a sin not to drink a martini.
I drank it up and was like, you know what? I need to post this. THURSDAY. So I proceeded to make two more for the video and photo shoot.
Then I drank them both.
And a fourth.
These Hawaiian Martinis are really good, ahem.
Chances are, if you have a semi-stocked bar, you have everything you need to make these martinis for your pre-Friday night party-like-it’s-Friday cocktail hour.
What’s in a Hawaiian Martini Cocktail?
You only need four easy ingredients to make this tropical drink:
- Vodka (or gin; I prefer a vodka martini)
- Coconut Rum
- Triple Sec
- Pineapple Juice
Optional: you can garnish with a cherry and a pineapple wedge. Do people actually garnish stuff for real? I’ve gotten so used to doing it for the blog…I always wonder.
When you google Hawaiian Martini, you get so many different ideas. There’s a Blue Hawaiian or a Pineapple and Coconut Martini or Roy’s Hawaiian Martini.
This recipe is my interpretation of what a martini in Hawaii should be. For me, Hawaiian drinks are all about the pineapple juice, the coconut rum, and orange too. While I don’t love the overpowering nature of orange juice, I think that using a bit of orange liqueur (aka Triple Sec) adds a good orange flavor without it being ORANGE.
The star of any Hawaiian drink needs to be pineapple…for obvious reasons.
This Hawaiian Martini is an easy martini cocktail full of pineapple, orange, and coconut. It’ll make you think you’re at the beach!
I’ve also included directions in the recipe for making a Hawaiian Martini Punch, because I know most people make drinks like this for a crowd. No one wants to sit at a party and make drinks to order, so you can make a Hawaiian Punch martini mixture and just pour over ice or shake it before serving.
Close your eyes, take a sip, and imagine the sand under your toes and the water in front of you. A Hawaiian Martini is almost as good as a beach vacation….almost.

This was absolutely delicious! My husband doesn’t like super sweet and it wasn’t too sweet. Just the right mix! Not too sweet, but if you like sweeter you can make it that way. Will be making this again! Thank you for the recipe!
Ok… so…. Yes yes and yes! Very easy to put together, definitely have a semi-stocked bar so I had everything already! So pretty and Hawaiian looking, lol! At first taste I didn’t think it was a very strong drink, but then as it sunk in… it’s one of those that’ll catch you off guard really easy! Lol. I couldn’t find what the little red part was at the bottom so I put my cherry and about a 1/2 tsp cherry juice and it was perfecto!! Would have loved to post a picture of mine but I didn’t see where to do that.
We made this! It was SUPER sweet but very yummy! You definitely need to like sweet drinks to fully appreciate it. Our changes:
– Decreased Pineapple Juice to 12 ounces.
– Malibu Caribbean Rum with Coconut Liqueur
– Gummy Bear-Infused Titos Handmade Vodka
– Dekuyper Triple Sec
I also want to visit Hawaii now, it’s so hot outside. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Gotta try it very soon!
I think you should have a mandatory every-six-months-go-to-Hawaii trip planned. I know it’s your total happy place and therefore it’s totally worth it!
Great sounding martini that would go down easily!
