Blue Blue Christmas

Day 312

Blue Blue Christmas
2.5 shots out of 5

Merry Christmas Eve Eve, to those of you who celebrate Christmas.......or to those of you who love the movie Elf. EXCITEMENT!!  The fact that tomorrow is Christmas Eve and the next day Christmas Day.....wowzers, these kids almost can't stand it!

I gave tonight's cocktail 2.5 shots out of 5.  I found this recipe at  They gave me a choice of vodka or rum, so I went with rum.  I'm honestly not sure that it would have made any difference in my rating if I would have chosen vodka.  This cocktail is not horrible and it's not great.  This cocktail is one that I will completely forget about in a few minutes.  It doesn't have a whole lot of flavor unfortunately and that's what makes it ho-hum.  I guess that's why they call it Blue Blue Christmas, because if you drink it and not a scrumptious cocktail like my White Christmas (which we had AGAIN last night) or Candy Cane Martini, then your Christmas will be blue.

Here is a the recipe for a Blue Blue Christmas:

  • 2 oz rum
  • 2 oz white cranberry juice
  • 1/2 oz blue curacao
  • 1/4 oz lime juice
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and strain your cocktail into a chilled martini glass.  I put a couple little orange peels on the rim of the glass......for looks.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to never having this cocktail again!
