|22.18 ml||0.75 oz||Blue Curacao|
About the Ingredients
Grape Vodka – While there are a few manufacturers of grape vodka, I prefer to use Taaka Grape Vodka for mixing as it is a decent tasting vodka by itself, but it’s also really cheap compared to other bottles of grape vodka. If you want something better, try Three Olives Grape Vodka or Smirnoff Grape as they are really good alcohols to mix with Gatorade.
Lemon-Lime Soda – Personally I prefer 7up. I find Sprite and the other lemon lime drinks too sweet, and this drink is already sweet enough. Decide on what your personal preferences are though.
Blue Gatorade or Blue Curacao – This depends on what you have on hand. It’s prettier with the Blue Curacao, but tastes better with the Gatorade. But you can use one as a replacement for the other. Or try them both in the same drink!
The biggest variation of this drink is using either the Blue Gatorade or Blue Curacao. Just remember, if you decide to use Gatorade, there will be less alcohol by volume for this drink as Blue Curacao is 40% abv and Gatorade is 0!
What Tools Are Needed?
- Cocktail Shaker

When to Serve a Blue Gatorade Shot?
