A pineapple and coconut delight for hot days, the Chi-Chi is a wonderful tropical cocktail that is something a little different than the average Margarita and Daiquiri. The blue color comes from the curacao and the flavor is very similar to a Pina Colada, think of it as the blue vodka version.

Also, I tried this with one of the new coconut vodkas as suggested by a reader and it is fantastic. There are many more possibilities for flavored vodkas as well. I might try raspberry, citrus, or one of the whipped cream vodkas.

A reader is also looking for a Chi-Chi recipe that was popular in the 1970's and 80's that involves freezing the main mix overnight and adding 7-Up. If you know this recipe, please share it with me: Email me.

Chi-Chi, Member dherpin

My 1983 American Professional Bartender's Guide calls for a vodka pina colada, but if this drink was ordered today, I would definately use coconut-flavored vodka, pineapple juice & cream frozen or over crushed ice. This recipe will only work with coconut-flavored vodka, if you use regular vodka you must use cream of coconut instead milk. I am researching who invented this drink, all drinks actually and I can not seem to find anything other than it was made in the 70's.
