Dutch distilled liquor maker Bols wanted him to promote Blue Curacao liquor. Blue Hawaii is made with rum, vodka, pineapple juice and sweet and sour blue curacao. It came with an umbrella and an orchid.

The garden bar is now a tropics bar and grill.

He will be 103 years old on Sunday, September 26th. His daughter says that when he was born in 1918, a pandemic happened that year.

Back in 2018, Hilton Hawaiian Village held a Blue Hawaii Cocktail Contest to honor him when he was 100 years old.
