Tips To Make Blue Lagoon Cocktail
✅ Lemonade is an integral part of this cocktail. So you can prepare home-made lemonade or get one from a store.
✅ Fresh lemon juice adds more tartness to the drink and gives that extra zing to the cocktail. Instead of Lemon, you can also add Lime juice.
✅ Some prefer adding Simple syrup and Lemon Juice only instead of Lemonades. This is fine as well, only thing is this one is a little sweeter.
✅ Tulip glasses give an exotic feel to this blue-colored drink. So, prefer tulip glasses if you have one. If not, Martini glasses would be perfect as well.
Variation Of Blue Curacao Drink
The Original version of this Blue Lagoon is argued to be the Shaken version. However, people have, in due course, started to blend all the ingredients with crushed ice and serve them in a glass.
Wherever version it is, you can do what fits your requirements and both are perfect for a nice party.
On the other hand, adding some bitters adds a nice balance to the overall drink – reducing the sweetness and tartness.
You can also add a dash of pineapple juice and this gives the color a little yellow tinge.
A perfect drink for happy hours, home parties, poolside get together, and particularly for Summer, Blue Lagoon will definitely live up to the hype and satisfy all your cravings for an energetic cocktail that is sure to liven up your party and atmosphere.
