Blue Lagoon Cocktail
I love tropical drinks! They make me dream of sitting on the beach in Hawaii, cruising in the Caribbean, or lazy days doing nothing but savoring the warm summer weather.
This blue lagoon drink is a fun bright blue cocktail and tastes amazing. I love that you can add in maraschino cherries and all of a sudden you have the perfect 4th of July cocktail.
Blue Curacao is one of my favorite things to make drinks with. We had the chance to visit a Curacao factory on a Caribbean Cruise
- Blue Curacao
Garnish - Maraschino Cherry, Lemon Slice
Blue Curacao - This orange-flavored liqueur is fantastic.
Lemonade - You can use store-bought lemonade or homemade lemonade like this Chick fil A Lemonade.
Vodka - You will want to use the highest quality vodka you have.
OXO angled jiggers - these are our go-to measuring tools for cocktails.
Bar Spoon - A bar spoon makes it easy to stir the entire drink and not get your hand/fingers in the cocktail
Hurricane Glass - For a truly tropical look serve this drink in a hurricane glass. You can also serve it in a rocks or martini glass if you want to serve a smaller cocktail.
Cocktail Shaker - This drink can be made in a cocktail shaker with ice or stirred with a bar spoon. It is really up to you how you want to present the drink. The cocktail shaker does bring all of the ingredients to the same cold temperature.

If you want a lighter drink add in more lemonade and less vodka so you retain the blue color of the cocktail drink.

If you want to lower the alcohol content you can use a Blue Curacao syrup that does not contain any booze.
To make this fewer calories you can use light lemonade or no sugar lemonade.
