History:

Said by some to date from 1934 and to have been created by Ray Buhen, one of Don The Beachcomber's original bartenders. In 1961 Ray opened his own Tiki-Ti Bar in Los Angeles, which today is run by his son and grandson. However, this recipe (spelt Hoola-Hoola) comes from Harry of Ciro’s ABC of Mixing Cocktails, published in London in 1923, ten years before Donn Beach opened his Don's Beachcomber bar in Hollywood. So, obviously, Ray Buhen did not create the Hula Hula – although he may have been responsible for changing the spelling and popularising it.
