Do you feel the Hawaiian islands calling your name? Maybe you swear you smell the salty sea air or feel  a cool breeze rushing through your hair? It would seem that you have a touch of the tropical fever. The only known cure aside from stepping on a plane is whipping up a few delicious drinks in your Margaritaville® Jimmy Buffett Anniversary Edition Key West™ Frozen Concoction Maker®.

If you're ready to relax with a frozen concoction in your hand, here are three Hawaiian-inspired recipes you must try:

1. Pineapple Mojito Frozen Concoction 
You love pineapple and you adore mojitos. So why shouldn't you combine these two passions into one frozen concoction? With this delicious beverage, you certainly can.

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups pineapple chunks
  • 2 ounces pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
  • 4 ounces water
  • 2 ounces white rum
  • 2 ounces club soda
  • 1 cup mint leaves
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • Lime wedges and mint sprigs, for garnish

Directions
First, make the pineapple syrup. Add the pineapple chunks, pineapple juice, brown sugar and water to a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Then, reduce heat and simmer for around 40 minutes or until the mixture reduces to around 2 1/2 cups. Strain the mixture and discard the solids. Next, add ice to the ice reservoir and the syrup and all remaining ingredients to the Margaritaville® Jimmy Buffett Anniversary Edition Key West™ Frozen Concoction Maker® glass jar. Concoct and pour into glasses. Top with club soda and garnish with mint sprigs and lime wedges; enjoy.

2. Lava Flow Frozen Concoction

It's a favorite frozen concoction on tropical islands and a more colorful version of the traditional piña colada. Start blending this frozen beverage right away!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups strawberry puree
  • 2 ounces coconut rum
  • 2 ounces light rum
  • 1/2 banana

It's time you turned your backyard into a tropical paradise. It's time you turned your backyard into a tropical paradise.

3. Blue Hawaiian Frozen Concoction
This wouldn't be a solid list of Hawaiian-inspired cocktails if it didn't include a Blue Hawaiian recipe. Legendary bartender, Harry Yee, created this iconic cocktail in the 1950s at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki. Some even say this bartender was the first one to popularize tiny umbrellas in tropical drinks. This guy sounds like a genius, right? Anyhow, when Elvis Presley released "Blue Hawaii" in 1961, this reawakened people's obsession with island culture, namely, the Blue Hawaiian cocktail.

Ingredients:

  • 4 ounces pineapple juice
  • 2 ounces light rum
  • 2 ounces blue curaçao
  • 2 ounces cream of coconut 
  • Fresh maraschino cherries and pineapple slices for garnish

Directions
Add ice to the ice reservoir and all remaining ingredients to the Margaritaville® Jimmy Buffett Anniversary Edition Key West™ Frozen Concoction Maker® glass jar. Concoct and pour into glasses. Garnish with cherries and pineapple slices; enjoy. 

Remember to enjoy your frozen concoctions responsibly and follow all drinking laws.
