1 ounce Vodka

  • 1 ounce Blue Curaçao
  • 2 ounces Lemon-Lime Soda (Sprite or 7Up)
  • 1/2 ounce Pineapple Juice
  • Splash of Grenadine
  • Maraschino Cherry (for garnish, optional)
  • Lemon Wedge (for garnish, optional)

  • Instructions:

    1. Gather your ingredients. Make sure all your liquids are chilled for an optimal refreshing experience.
    2. Fill a shaker with ice. Ice helps dilute the drink slightly and keeps it nice and cold.
    3. Add the vodka, blue curaçao, lemon-lime soda, and pineapple juice to the shaker. Pour all the measured ingredients into the shaker with the ice.
    4. Secure the lid and shake vigorously for 10-15 seconds. Shaking creates a smooth, well-blended drink and incorporates the air that creates that light and frothy texture.
    5. Strain the cocktail into a chilled glass. You can use a coupe glass, a margarita glass, or even a mason jar for a more casual look.
    6. Slowly pour the grenadine down the side of the glass. The grenadine will sink to the bottom, creating a visually stunning layered effect.
    7. Garnish with a maraschino cherry and a lemon wedge, if desired. The garnish adds a pop of color and a touch of citrusy aroma.

    Voila! Your very own blue lagoon is ready to be savored.

    Absolutely! While vodka is the traditional spirit used, you can substitute it with rum, gin, or even tequila for a slightly different twist on the recipe.

    2. What if I don’t have blue curaçao?

    No worries! You can create a similar blue hue by using a combination of butterfly pea flower tea (for a vibrant blue) and a splash of grenadine (for a deeper blue). Experiment until you achieve the desired color.

    You can pre-mix the vodka, blue curaçao, pineapple juice, and lemon-lime soda in a pitcher and store it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. When you’re ready to serve, simply strain the mixture into a glass with ice and add the grenadine for the layering effect.
