We made a Blue Lagoon! It’s a tad bit out of our normal wheelhouse, in that it is a “sweeter,” type of drink.
There are a variety of ways to make the Blue Lagoon, and we used Sprite instead of lemonade in ours, to preserve the blue color, and transparency for the lemon twist. =]
Here’s how we did it —
1.5 oz. Vodka
0.75 oz. Blue Curacao
1 dsh Lemon Juice
Add Vodka, Lemon Juice, and Blue Curacao to shaker
Strain over ice into a sling glass
Top with Sprite
Garnish with a lemon twist
Notes: Overall, a classic that comes with simple ingredients. As mentioned above, feel free to substitute out the Sprite for lemonade. If you drink often, it tastes a lot like a vodka with Sprite. You could probably use lemon vodka, as well, to play with the Sprite or lemonade.
