The 6-ingredient, gluten-free Blue Hawaiian cocktail recipe has me wishing I was on an island with this drink in my hand. This drink can be made two different ways; one with cream of coconut for a tropical delight, the other with sweet and sour mix for a clear appearance.  Either way it's made, count me in!

The 6-ingredient, gluten-free Blush Spritzer puts a spin on a gin and tonic, with a little romance thrown in. The color comes from muddling a few maraschino cherries with lime juice, mint, and a splash of the maraschino liquid. The cherries give a slight sweetness to the classic, tangy gin and tonic.
