The Aqua Pearl is a fragrant, delicious tropical delight from the Libation Goddess herself, master mixologist Audrey Saunders.
Soursop nectar is the star here. It doesn’t just impart a luscious texture, heady scent, and mysterious tropical fruit flavor – it also provides a milky base for the blue curaçao to cling to, producing a lovely color without using too much of the stuff. If you don’t have soursop nectar, pineapple juice will do in a pinch.
If you don’t have blue curaçao on hand, you can use orange curaçao (or triple sec, or orange shrubb), with a drop or two of blue food dye added.
Shake all ingredients with ice, and strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Garnish with an edible orchid or other flower, or a lemon twist.
