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.
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.
I can totally imagine this being a hit on a summer brunch! I totally agree with you about a blue drink!ReplyDelete

I love blue curacao!!! Blue Hawaiian's are my favorite drink so I'm gonna have to try this.ReplyDelete
I was looking at this as I took a sip of my drink and almost forgot I was not drinking the deep blue ocean! I love sour mix so I think I could get hooked on these especially with the refreshing blue color! Great post!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete

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