Blue Cosmopolitan Recipe

The Blue Cosmopolitan is a fun variation on the classic cosmopolitan drink. As the name implies, the cocktail basically tastes the same as a normal cosmo, the difference being, the color of the drink.

So, if it’s the exact same thing as the traditional cocktail, why do people order this? Perhaps, because they think it’s fun. It’s different. It looks cool. Their favorite color is blue.

All in all, the blue version of the drink is a nice trick to have up the sleeve for those occasions when a customer might ask you, the bartender, to change up his or her cocktail.

Plus, it’s a fun drink to make especially during the summer. Owing to its sweet taste and cool look, the blue cocktail will definitely have a following during the hot summer months.

You can check out a few other variations I’ve made like the Pink Cosmo which is very similar with only one ingredient change, or the Pomegranate Cosmo here made with fresh fruit for a “healthier” option of this cocktail.

The ingredients are exactly the same as a classic cosmo, save for the triple-sec. Instead of regular triple-sec, or orange-flavored liqueur, you’ll use blue curacao to make a yummy blue vodka drink.

What is blue curacao? It’s a liqueur flavored with the dried peel of the laraha citrus fruit found on the island of Curacao. The fruit is a non-native version of the orange, and was in fact originally developed from the Spanish Valencia Orange. Although the fruit itself is extremely bitter, its peel is used for its aromatic qualities and citrus flavor.

And if you really want to change this up, why not make it a frozen drink? All you need is some ice and a frozen drink blender and this becomes a new beach favorite.
