In this guide, I’ll take a look at 19 of the best blue-colored cocktails you can try making at home that look great and taste equally as good.
1). Blue Hawaiian
Rum, blue curacao, pineapple juice, coconut cream
The Blue Hawaiian cocktail is a delicious, sweet tropical drink that’s perfect for summer afternoons by the pool.
In essence, this cocktail is a colorful variation of the popular Pina Colada – it just splits up the the flavors of coconut and pineapple with blue curacao which provides the alluring aquamarine color.
It’s best garnished with a pineapple wedge and maraschino cherry.
2). Deep Blue Sea Martini
Vodka, blue curacao, sour mix, pineapple juice
If you’re in the mood for a fruity vodka martini, this deep blue cocktail is a great option.
It not only looks stunning, it provides a sour tropical fruit flavor which is refreshing and will leave you wanting more than just one. It’s quick and easy to put together and a great addition to any party.
Tequila, blue curacao, (white) creme de cacao liqueur, cream
Something a little different, the Frostbite is an appealing blue cocktail with a tequila base and chocolate and orange liqueurs.
It may sound like an unusual combination of ingredients, but the Frostbite is a popular recipe that’s been around for some time.
It’s worth noting that it’s important to choose white creme de cacao rather than dark brown, so the blue curacao can control the drink’s absorbing color. This cocktail is best garnished with a cherry.
4). Blue Margarita
Tequila, blue curacao, lime juice, coarse salt (for rim)
If you love the taste of a traditional margarita but want a drink that’s more appealing on the eye, look no further than the Blue Margarita.
This cocktail substitutes triple sec with another type of orange liqueur, blue curacao, creating a stunning blue drink, without changing the flavor of a traditional margarita all that much.
If you like, you can rim your chilled margarita glass with salt to enjoy this drink. A lime wedge or a slice of orange provide the best garnish.
5). Moody Blue
Gin, blue curacao, sweet vermouth, orange juice
Made from gin, blue curacao and sweet vermouth, this cocktail is less well-known than most of the others on this list, but it’s equally delicious.
Its ingredients need to be shaken well before serving into a glass of your choice. This cocktail is best garnished with a slice of orange.
6). Air Force One
Hpnotiq liqueur, citrus vodka, citrus soda
This is a cocktail slightly lighter on the alcohol, so perfect for casual drinking. It gets its beautiful, bright-blue color from Hpnotiq, and its refreshing flavor from the citrus vodka and citrus soda.
The Air Force One is a pour-and-enjoy drink that’s best served in a chilled highball glass.
7). Blue Lagoon
Vodka, blue curacao, lemon-lime soda
This is a simple three-ingredient cocktail but an incredibly popular one, especially during the summer. The Blue Lagoon is best served in a highball glass, garnished with either an orange slice or a lemon slice.
A popular variation of this drink is to add a dash of lime cordial to accentuate the delicious citrus flavor.
8). Chocolate Raspberry Martini
UV Blue vodka, white creme de cacao liqueur, triple sec, lime juice
Sweet, fruity and delicious, the Chocolate Raspberry Martini is a cocktail you can’t miss out on. It mixes citrus flavors with a delicate hint of chocolate and is perfect for dessert.
The vivid blue color of the drink comes from UV Blue, a raspberry-flavored vodka, which combines excellently with the orange and lime flavors of the other ingredients.
If you want to add a garnish, a simple orange or lime twist provides an elegant touch.
9). Blue Dragon
Vodka mandarin, blue curacao
This cocktail is made from vodka and blue curacao. It’s best shaken with some crushed ice until the ingredients have properly mixed together, and then poured into a martini glass.
The most popular garnish for this drink is either a slice of orange or a cherry.
Vodka, blue curacao, coconut cream, cubed pineapple, vanilla ice cream
The Chi-Chi is the only frozen cocktail on this list and is ideal for a treat on a hot summer’s day. It provides an exceptional tropical taste and is a little different to the average cocktail.
Packed with pineapple and coconut flavors, the Chi-Chi bears some resemblance to a pina colada, except with an added vodka twist.
It’s worth noting that it’s a little creamier than most frozen cocktails due to the inclusion of both coconut cream and ice cream.
If you want to garnish the drink, the most popular choice is a fresh pineapple wedge.
11). Blue Bombsicle
Raspberry vodka, lemonade
This sweet cocktail is one of the easiest to make and perfect for busy parties. All you need is blue raspberry vodka, lemonade, ice, and you’re good to go.
If you want to spruce it up a little and add some extra flavor, you can also add raspberries and lime.
12). Blue Martini
Vodka, blue curacao, angostura bitters
The Blue Martini is a great cocktail to look at with its vivid color. It can be made by half filling a cocktail shaker with ice and adding angostura bitters, vodka and blue curacao.
Shake these ingredients well and then strain into a cocktail glass of your choice. As is the case with most martinis, this cocktail is best garnished with olives.
13). Blue Moon
Gin, blue curacao
Another extremely simple cocktail to put together is the Blue Moon. Made from just gin and blue curacao, stir the ingredients together and then strain in a chilled glass.
This cocktail is typically garnished with a lemon twist.
14). Blue Bayou
Vodka, blue curacao, grapefruit juice, fresh or canned pineapple chunks
This stunning cocktail combines grapefruit juice with the popular combination of blue curacao and pineapple to create a fruity, flavorful and refreshing drink. It’s ideal for summer, and very similar to a vodka margarita.
To put the drink together, simply blend the vodka, blue curacao, pineapple and grapefruit juice with some ice until smooth. Then, pour into a chilled highball glass and garnish with a fresh pineapple wedge.
15). Daphne Martini
Gin, pear vodka, blue curacao, dry vermouth, orange bitters
The Daphne Martini combines gin and pear-infused vodka to create a strong and tasty cocktail. The drink has a perfect balance of dry, sweet and fruity flavors making it an appealing choice for most people.
It’s worth noting that the drink is made up entirely of liquor, so be careful not to knock them back too quickly. Almost any garnish works with this cocktail so be creative.
In terms of the choice of gin, if you’re looking for a light and refreshing Daphne Martini, try something similar to Bombay Sapphire. On the other hand, Bulldog and Martin Miller’s gin will take the cocktail to the drier side.
16). Electric Lemonade
Vodka, blue curacao, sweet and sour mix, 7-up soda
This is a sweet and tangy vodka cocktail perfect for summer and outdoor gatherings. Simply combine vodka, blue curacao and sweet and sour mix, and strain the mixture into a glass. Then, fill up the glass with soda, usually 7-up.
If you want the full effect, add a couple of glowing ice cubes to the drink. This cocktail is best served with a lemon wedge or cherry garnish.
17). Something Blue
Hpnotiq liqueur, white wine, ginger ale
This is a cocktail well-suited to being served at weddings and bridal showers. This is because it’s easy to make, beautiful to look at, and great-tasting.
The alluring blue-colored spirit of Hpnotiq is mixed with white wine and a small amount of ginger ale. The latter gives the drink its stunning and elegant sparkle.
To prepare the cocktail, all you need to do is pour the three ingredients into a champagne flute – there’s no need to stir the drink as the bubbles from the soda will do the mixing for you.
18). Swan Lake
Vodka, blue curacao, vanilla liqueur, light cream, banana
This blue-colored cocktail is a little different to many of the cocktails on this list and requires longer to prepare.
Firsty, you’ll need to mix the vanilla liqueur and half of the vodka in one blender, while in another blender, blend the rest of the vodka with cream, blue curacao and banana.
Pour both mixtures into a chilled cocktail glass at the same time and garnish with chocolate powder. This is a filling, but delicious drink.
Strawberry vodka, blue curacao, lime juice, lemon-lime soda
The final cocktail on this list is the Smurf. To prepare this drink, you’ll need to fill a highball glass with ice and add your measurements of strawberry vodka, blue curacao and lime juice.
Top the drink with lemon-lime soda, usually either 7-up or Sprite, and garnish with a cherry.
