Blue Curaçao is back y’all and I don’t mean in some frat-tastic “let’s have Blue Shots!” sort of way. I mean in a total Tiki, fabulous Tropical, creative cocktail sort of way. I recently posted a photo of my Seníor Blue Curaçao on Instagram and was met with several cries of, “oh no, I’m afraid of the Blue stuff!”. Don’t be afraid, be excited!
There is no better time for fun citrusy drinks than winter time! We need Vitamin C, we need Island type drinks, we need a little vacation in a glass because this weather is so cold and snowy! I’ll be posting these recipes one at a time instead of all at once because I’ve decided to go FULL TIKI during the chilly times! Tiki, it’s a state of mind.
The Blue Business
- 1 1/2 oz Brugal Extra Dry Rum
