Aquadisiac

Aquadisiac cocktail with aged or light rum, blue curaçao, lemon juice, and orgeat

The Aquadisiac, from Beachbum Berry Remixed, is a rare example of a pretty blue cocktail that actually tastes good. It works so well because it’s a simple, well-balanced drink; orange-lemon-orgeat is a classic tart-sweet combination made lovelier with the inclusion of blue curaçao instead of the traditional orange.

The key here is finding a quality blue curaçao – we like the ones made by Giffard and Drillaud, which are very nearly as flavorful as their non-blue counterparts. If you don’t have any of the blue stuff, you can use orange curaçao (or triple sec, or orange shrubb), with a drop or two of blue food dye added.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
