Blue-Ocean-cocktail

This is the classic tropical cocktail, a spectacular bright blue, a hint of sweet and sour and a it has a bit of a kick.  Perfectly suited to sipping by the pool or on the beach as the sun goes down.  It also has that color that make it perfect to dress up with paper umbrellas, wax flowers or wedges of fruit on the side.  You really can’t over dress this drink.  The recipe is easy to scale up but do be careful as it is pretty strong.  You could also lower the alcohol a bit by increasing the amount of grapefruit juice, but you would want to also increase the syrup to balance the sweet and sour elements.  You may also want to add a little more blue curacao.  This would allow you to fill a small brandy balloon that you could savor as you unwind.

Ingredients:

1 oz. vodka

1/2 oz. blue curacao

1/3 oz. grapefruit juice

1-2 splashes simple syrup

Directions:

Add all ingredients to a shaker filled with ice; shake, then strain and serve either straight up in a martini glass or over ice. Garnish with an orange slice & tropical flowe
