Blue Lagoon

Day 157


Blue Lagoon
2.5 shots out of 5


Holy Insanely Hot Day!  We took our two girls (3 and 1) to Happy Hollow today (an amusement park/zoo for little ones).  It was a GREAT day and everyone really enjoyed themselves......only problem was the fact that it was 91 degrees out and the little ones were totally done by the end......or is that a bad thing?

I gave tonight's cocktail 2.5 shots out of 5.  Another blue cocktail!  Yeay!  But that's where the "yeay" ends.  I needed to find a blended cocktail because it's too hot to think of a martini right now, so I found this cocktail here.  Wasn't feeling like vodka today, but gave it a shot anyways.  I can totally taste the vodka.  The pineapple juice does mask it a bit and the blue curacao....well it adds a nice color.  The vodka is a bit much for me, so I'm not terribly enjoying this cocktail all that much.  Oh well.  Sometimes blue cocktails are fun.......sometimes they're not, so is life.  If you have a favorite cocktail that you would like me to try, please email it to me!  I love hearing from you all and receiving cocktail recipes from you as well!

Here is the recipe for a Blue Lagoon:

  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • 1/2 oz blue curacao
In a blender add 3/4 cup of ice (I used 1 cup and it came out a bit thick) and all of the ingredients above.  Blend up your cocktail until the ice is gone, pour and enjoy.


Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to family and enjoying your little ones!

Cheers!!

  1. Is the only problem with it that you can taste the vodka? or is it just not a nice blend in general? Vodka is my general go-to choice, but I don't want to waste it (and have to wash the blender) if it won't be any good.

    1. Yes, for me it tastes a bit to vodkaey. But if you enjoy the taste of vodka being one of the main flavors in a cocktail, then you should be fine. I would definitely use the 3/4 cup of ice though, otherwise it's just too thick. If you do try it, please let me know what you think of it!
