Into The Blue

Day 13

Into The Blue
1 shot out of 5



Sounds like a fun drink.  Into The Blue.  Blue cocktails are fun to drink, right?  Well if you're talk'n Blue Hawaiian then you'd be right!  This cocktail has the taste of what I was afraid grapefruit drinks would taste like, yuck!  Tonight's cocktail is the reason I was scared to try them and I have to say that I'm glad that I tried the Sea Breeze first, because I REALLY liked that one!!

I tried tonight's cocktail along with my husband and our neighbors.........survey all agreed XXX.  None of us enjoyed this cocktail.  I hate to tell you all how bad some of these cocktails are, but I feel if I wasn't honest about it and you tried it and hated it, then you'd in turn hate me.  I couldn't have that!  So if you're following me and have enjoyed what I've enjoyed, then don't try tonight's cocktail.  But if you're feeling adventurous and have the ingredients at home (don't go out to buy them if you don't) and want to try it, then by all means go ahead but let me know what you think.

I gave tonight's cocktail 1 shot out of 5.  The mix of ingredients was not a good one.  It's sad that my new found love of grapefruit juice can have a bad outcome, but I guess every mix has a bad day right?

Here is the recipe for Into The Blue:

  • 1 shot light rum
  • 1/2 shot of Blue Curaçao
  • 1 1/2 shots of grapefruit juice
  • club soda to top it off with

Put ice into a shaker and add the rum, blue curaçao and grapefruit juice.  Using a bar spoon stir it up real good.  Pour the cocktail including the ice into a highball glass and top it off with club soda.

Here's to tomorrow night's cocktail being better then tonight's!!

  1. yeah, this one was gross. I let the ice melt and then tried to drink it again in the middle of the night, and it still didn't taste all that wonderful. It needs sugar? Lots of it?

    also, that blue stuff is BRIGHT on a white sink...

  2. Do you think the recipe should have said "sweetened grapefruit juice"? I concur with your 1 shot rating - it didn't make me gag, but I won't be making this one again :)
