Serve as a layered drink by first pouring blue curaçao into ice-filled glass. SHAKE other ingredients and carefully strain into ice-filled glass so it layers over blue curaçao. Some also opt to serve with a rum float.
Adapted from a recipe created in 1957 by Harry K. Yee at Henry Kaiser's Hawaiian Village Hotel (latterly the Hilton) in Waikiki, Oahu, Hawaii. The drink, created at the behest of Bols to aid sales of their blue curaçao, is named after the hit song from the 1937 Bing Crosby film, Waikiki Wedding, and not after what is generously described as a "musical-comedy" Elvis Presley 1961 film of the same name.
