HOLY MOLY this cocktail is HORRIBLE!! Absolutely horrible!! The first thing I thought when I tasted it was that it reminded me of some nasty stuff they used to use in the dentist office. I don't even know how to describe tonight's cocktail except say, if anyone EVER offers you a Blue Duck, slap them across the face and run for your life!!!!
This drink is bleh. Oh my goodness! Like I said when I made my Silk Panties cocktail and I listed 8 things that I have learned so far by creating this blog, ""blue caraçao doesn't make "every" cocktail taste good such as in the Into The Blue cocktail"", well the same thing can be said about tonight's cocktail. Just because it's blue doesn't for one second mean that it tastes good......at all!! Yikes, I feel like gargling with salt water. Anyways, I would HIGHLY recommend that you do NOT try tonight's cocktail.......ever.
Here is the recipe (but don't ever use it) for a Blue Duck:
- 2 shots vanilla vodka
- 1 shot blue curaçao
- a dash of Chambord
In a shaker (again, never make this cocktail) add ice, vodka and blue curaçao and shake it (or pour it down the sink) until the two are blended and cold. In a martini glass, strain your cocktail and float your chambord on the top of your cocktail. If you look closely at the photo below, you'll see that I "tried" to float my chambord on top, but all it did was sink to the bottom. The very bottom of my martini glass has a little bit of a purpley/marooney looking color to it.
Here is a photo of the end result:

I'm sooo glad none of my readers sent me this recipe, because I would feel real bad if they had and had raved about how good it is and how it's their favorite cocktail.
Cheers to tomorrow night being a million times better.......in the cocktail department!!
