Top 5 Blue Curacao Drinks

Chase away those blues with some stunning blue curacao drinks. Blue curacao cocktails are among the most eye-catching at any bar, making them a popular choice whether you prefer rum cocktails or premium vodka.

So, if you want to get acquainted with the deep blue depths of blue curacao drinks, this guide shows you everything you need to know.

Why Use Blue Curacao?

Blue curacao has long been a prized ingredient within cocktails for its aesthetics. But most people begin their understanding with little more than the color.

Firstly, it’s made from the laraha orange, created from the bitter Sevilla orange, brought to the Caribbean island of Curacao in 1527 by the Spanish.

It was soon found that the skin of this orange, with its highly aromatic characteristics, could make one of the world’s most recognizable liqueurs.

So, why should you use the best blue Curacao in your vodka cocktails?

·                Aesthetic – Nothing is as eye-catching as the blue-tinged version of the curacao liqueur. Traditionally, it’s orange, and the blue dye is added purely for decorative purposes.

·                Tasty – Its zesty, sweet orange flavor with a hint of bitterness also gives it a real practical use.

·                Versatility – You may notice that blue curacao cocktails can contain any number of base alcohols. This is why you can find it in an array of the best cocktail recipes in history.

In short, blue curacao is one of the best liquors to always have in your cabinet at home. There’s no better way to wow your guests!

Is Blue Curacao just Triple Sec?

Blue curacao is nothing more than ordinary curacao colored blue with a dye. However, the blue version usually has an alcohol percentage ranging from 20-25% since its primary function is decorative.

However, while different, blue curacao can substitute Triple Sec in all popular cocktails.

What is best to mix with blue curacao?

Blue curacao drinks are highly versatile, meaning they work as well with premium rum as with vodka and tequila.

It even works with ordinary juices, such as strawberry and cranberry. So, feel free to experiment with some easy blue curacao drinks.

And, like other liquors, blue curacao will also pair well with your favorite weed strain.
