Summer Blue Lagoon

There are many reason’s to sport red, white and blue this week: the World Cup (Go USA), the 4th of July…okay so maybe there are just two reasons, but they are great reasons! Today I’ve got a delicious, frozen blue cocktail to cool you down from the summer heat while showing off your American Pride (HINT: if you pour your blue drink into a red cup with a white straw, there ya go red, white and blue!)

Friday Feature Cocktail: Pineapple Paradise

The warmth of spring has yet to arrive, but the rain that comes with spring is making its way in and looking to stay all weekend. Yay! (complete sarcasm) One of these days I will be able to enjoy the fresh air outside of my house, but in the meantime I will be daydreaming of a tropical getaway. The best way to really get in the mindset of a paradise vacation is to drink like you’re on a paradise vacation… so tonight I will mix myself up a Pineapple Paradise!

Pineapple Paradise

  • 1½ parts Malibu® Coconut Rum
  • ¾ part Pineapple Juice
  • Splash Hiram Walker Blue Curacao
  • Splash of Coconut Cream

Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a pineapple slice.

Enjoy!

Friday Feature Cocktail: Pineapple Paradise

Every year once the holidays are over and it’s back to full work weeks and busy days, I begin daydreaming of tropical vacations and lazy days on the beach. Since the weather outside is far from that of the Caribbean, I plan on fulfilling my vacation dreams with a nice tropical cocktail (because of course that’s the next best thing). The Pineapple Paradise mixes the sweet and fruity flavors of coconut and pineapple that are synonymous with warm weather getaways.

Friday Feature Cocktail: Blue Hawaiian

It’s a hot and sunny summer day and I’m craving a nice refreshing cocktail! I’ll be going home and lighting the tiki torches and imagining that my CT deck is a Caribbean poolside paradise. A tropical cocktail is the perfect prop to help set the mood, and today’s feature cocktail is a Blue Hawaiian!

Go Big Blue: Blue Curacao Margarita!

So now that September is upon us, and summer is sadly fading away, there is one thing I will admit that I love about September, and that is Football Season! As a big fan of the New York Giants I could not be more excited for 8:30 pm! Tonight I will put on my lucky Giants shirt for the first time since that glorious Sunday in February and I will drink booze out of my lucky Giants coffee mug (for those of you who don’t know me I’m just a little bit superstitious! )Now you may be wondering what I will be drinking out of said lucky Giants mug, but the truth is there is no lucky cocktail or beverage, so the contents of my mug have the flexibility to change frequently between coffee (rarely), beer, wine and cocktails.

Tonight I will be mixing up a Blue Curacao Margarita as I cheer on Big Blue (adding blue food coloring to my beer did cross mind, but this seemed like a tastier option while it’s still warm outside)!

The Go Big Blue, Blue Curacao Margarita

 

Shake with ice. Strain into glass lucky giants mug.

I wish you all a very happy football season, no matter who your team is!

Enjoy!

P.S. Stephanie I hope you enjoy this cocktail 😉
