Blue Cocktails! So Pretty and So Blue!

Blue cocktails don't have to taste like they were made in a garbage can at a fraternity party! Cocktail snobs may balk, but most people secretly love a blue cocktail if it's made well. Blue cocktails get their pretty hue from blue curaçao, a liqueur made from soaking the skins of a fruit known as the laraha, the trees of which were the unintended result of planting Valencia orange trees in Curaçao. The oranges were far too bitter to eat, but the mutant fruit they produced proved perfect for liqueur! Used with a light touch (and you only need a little blue curaçao to make your cocktail extremely blue), it can add a lovely note to a drink! I've created a playlist on our YouTube channel with fun blue cocktails for all occasions. Here's to libations that are both delicious and lovely!
