Deep Blue Sea Martini

Deep Blue Sea Martini

There's just something about a blue drink... It's interesting and enticing, fun to look at, to serve and best of all, to drink. And when that blue drink is called Deep Blue Sea and is served in the summer it's pretty much irresistible.

Deep Blue Sea Martini
I don't know the origin of the drink other than the fact that recipes for it can be found using either vodka or gin. Playful color aside though, it's not a fruity sipper but rather a fairly strong cocktail. Still, can't you just picture an entire pitcher of it at a summer party? Cheers!

Per Serving:
2 oz. Vodka
3/4 oz. Sour mix (see recipe below)
1/2 oz. Blue Curacao
1/2 oz. Pineapple juice

Add  the vodka, sour mix, blue curacao and pineapple juice to a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice, shake well and pour into a chilled cocktail glass.

To make the sour mix, add 3 oz. of water, 3 oz. of sugar, 2 oz. of lemon juice and 2 oz. of lime juice to a pot. Simmer on the stove top until the sugar is dissolved and allow to cool. Store the unused portion in the refrigerator.

  6. This sounds so perfect during this weather. The only thing is that I think I would want more than just one glass full, and i barely ever drink.

  18. That sounds wonderful! But if it is too sweet, why not use Selzer instead of 7UP?
