My body is in North America but my mind is on a warm, white sand beach in the Caribbean. Seriously. I miss my island so much. I’m planning a trip as I type and really want to do it ASAP but I can’t be mean to my PIC so I’m waiting for him to get his vacation days up, so that he can come to paradise with me. Otherwise, February would find me in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. In the mean time, I have to resort to making drinks like these and then spreading off in my living room like I’m on vacation, enjoying life while sipping on said drinks. I think I need to buy some drink umbrellas soon. Anyways, today I give you this Blue Lemonade and also The Bermuda Triangle. The blue lemonade is such a colorful and delicious drink. The Bermuda triangle is STRONG but good. They both are easy to make and go down very well. If I can’t get to the Caribbean at this point, well I’ll just bring the Caribbean to me..
2 oz vodka
2 oz Blue Curacao liqueur
6 oz lemonade (I used the mix)
You’re supposed to combine all ingredients in a shaker jar. Mix well. Serve in tall, thin glass over ice BUT I wanted to build my drink so I started with the lemonade and poured that into the serving glass, then combined vodka and blue curacao liqueur in the shaker, shook and then poured into the glass with lemonade. That’s why my drink has two colors.
As an added bonus, I found this: The Bermuda Triangle. in my photo archives
I made it late last year but forgot to take the photo of the ingredients in my haste to make the drink and start sipping (so I feel as if it doesn’t deserve its’ own post)
If you want to make it, what you’ll need is:
3 oz Gold Rum
2 oz Unsweetened Cranberry Juice
2 oz Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
Add all ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Shake. Pour into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice and stir gently. Garnish with an orange wheel and cherries. And Ta-Da!
Have a relaxing and enjoyable weekend.
Bye For Now…..
